Lovers Leap Loop Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The whole loop is a treat to hike with different features offered at every turn, but this first section might be the most enjoyable for dogs. Lined in shady maples, oaks, river birches, sourwoods, and tulip poplars, the trail runs right along the French Broad River.
The view of the river is so pretty you might forget to watch your footing, but the trail is rocky and uneven in places. The walking gets more difficult and strenuous, so be sure your dog is a nimble, energetic hiker before starting out."
