Hot Springs NC Hiking

Bluff Mountain Outfitters
152 Bridge St, Hot Springs, NC 28743
Welcome to the official Website for Bluff Mountain Outfitters, located right on the Appalachian Trail in Hot Springs, North Carolina. Since 1997, folks have been stopping in and enjoying our latest offerings of trail supplies, outdoor equipment (gear and clothing for men, women and children), food, books and toys, maps, and local information.

Appalachian Trail
The Appalachian Trail was built through the town of Hot Springs over seven decades ago, and today white blazes still mark the path through town and over the bridge across the French Broad River, before heading north up to the vista, Lover’s Leap.

The Trail is unequivocally intertwined with the town – it is the first town, headed on a northbound hike, through which the Trail literally overlaps the town’s main street. Because of fond experiences, recreational opportunities, and scenic beauty, the town is quickly gaining popularity among second-home owners and people seeking to relocate entirely to Hot Springs.
