The Remote Town In North Carolina That’s Full Of Adventure

The Appalachian trail spans around 2,200 miles crossing through 14 states – with one of those being (of course) North Carolina. Yet, one unique part about the trail is that it actually crosses through the quaint mountain town of Hot Springs. With a year round population of just 563, adventurers, backpackers, and tourists flock to this hidden mountain town for a truly rugged yet refined experience.

Hot Springs is truly an adventurer’s paradise. While a bit chilly this time of year, it’s always great to plan early, right? A trip here in early spring offers uncharted beauty minus the crowds. There’s so much more to do here, and you can always hop right on the Appalachian Trail for a day of adventure (or a week). Have you visited Hot Springs before?
