This joint hike with Riverlink goes to the source of the North Fork of the French Broad River. After the hike there may be an opportunity to stop for a beer at one of the breweries along the drive. Hike starts at the Summey Cove trailhead on NC 215 above Balsam Grove and follows this trail 2.2 miles to its end at FS 140, with a side trip down and back to Courthouse Falls. We may also extend the hike a little upriver from the falls. We’ll head downhill on FS 140 for 3.1 miles to its termination at NC 215. Short car shuttle. | Topo(s): Sam Knob, Lake Toxaway; also NatGeo map #780
