If riding through a landscape reminiscent of the Scottish Highlands on twisty mountain roads, passing through small towns, and dining in the lap of luxury sound good, this adventure is for you. “But wait, there’s more!” I exclaim. Once in Hot Springs, you can take in an adrenaline-pumping river run, soak in a tub fed by the natural hot springs, or do both and then top it off with a massage.
The surrounding lush green landscape provides the perfect setting for a restful and relaxing day—or an entire weekend. Points of interest: The Scottish Highlands-like valley at the adventure’s beginning, the towns of Luck and Trust, the Spring Creek Gorge, the Hot Springs Spa, the French Broad River, several great restaurants, and the Appalachian Trail.
