This hike leaves the trail town of Hot Springs and makes a loop, passing cliffs above the French Broad River, where you can soak in an historic view from Lovers Leap. First, trek along a narrow mountain stream where spring flowers abound. Meet the famed AT, then join Lovers Leap Ridge. Trace the AT atop this narrow spine as the brawny French Broad flows hundreds of feet below.
