Hiking-BuddiesJoin ATC leaders including CEO & President Suzanne Dixon on a hike up Lovers Leap. This short hike (approx. 2 miles) gains about 500 feet of elevation to allow for lovely views of town and the French Broad River. The loop comes back down to town via Silvermine Trail.  The hike will kick off with a welcome from Mayor Harrison and will include discussion along the scenic hike about ATC's new initiative – Wild East- as well as Trail management, natural resource protection, and opportunities to support this iconic asset

The group will be meeting at the Hot Springs Town Hall on Monday, June 17 at 2 p.m. and is expected to return around 4 p.m.
