Sandy Bottom Trail Rides
Looking to travel through the mountains while getting a break from hiking? Check out this place for all of your horseback riding needs. Available year round, for all ages and skill levels.
Best views for horseback riding near Hot Springs and the French Broad Adventures! Worth the drive! Make a day out if it!
This is a fun place to ride and visit a gem mine. You get to keep all of your finds.
The trails take you to beautiful views of the mountains. It is in Marshall about 15 miles from the Lemon Drop. I highly recommend the 3 hour ride to the gem mine located on the property. Will be going again for my 60th birthday celebration!
“Great coffee and a quick bite to eat. Check out the bluegrass jam on Thursday nights!”

Raft & Zipline with us and experience two of Asheville's natural wonders: the French Broad River and the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains. Best of all, with French Broad Adventures you don't have to choose between ziplining & rafting. We are the only raft/zip combo close enough to Asheville that you can have fun with us and make it back to town in time for dinner.
