Usually when something is described as a “best kept secret,” red flags pop up. Rocky Bluff, though, is a well-concealed gem, just three miles down NC 209 from Hot Springs. Again, the no reservations policy is a contributing factor, as is its location in an area that’s not exactly on the way to anything — except Hot Springs, which too few people have an appreciation of. For one, there are the hot springs. But there’s also a great trail-down downtown with good burger joints, a great outfitter (Bluff Mountain) and a vibe that invites you to just hang. But there’s also white-water rafting on the French Broad (Hot Springs Rafting) and the Appalachian Trail runs through town, heading north over Rich Mountain, south to Max Patch.
I’m loving the fabric of this super soft hoodie. I never want to take it off!
These moderately priced insoles are a great upgrade for any hiking shoe.
I wear my Arizona’s ALL the time. I can’t wait to get a new color this Spring!
This is such a good value. A lightweight 1 person tent for a great price. I like it for solo missions to fish or for section hikes on the AT. With social distancing a thing, bringing your own tent on a trip with buddies makes a lot of sense.
I love these and wear them around for everything from a walk around the neighborhood to a quick workout and anything in between.
