Trailfest in Hot Springs, North Carolina

Where better to celebrate the Appalachian Trail than in the town of Hot Springs, NC, where the AT runs right down the center of the town and crosses the third oldest river in the world–the French Broad River? Every year since 1995 in April, the town of Hot Springs holds its annual celebration–Trailfest. Celebrate the outdoors all weekend long in the only “trail town” on the AT.
