Magnificent Magnolia manor Hot Springs

What a great place to stay for another Fit and Fun adventure in Hot springs 
And we loved hiking Paint Rock the first day   It's only about 6 miles from Hotsprings on other side of French broad river   Ancient pictographs on rocks from Cherokee Indians 2500 BC.  They were headed to medicinal Hot Springs Spa.  
Next day tough but pretty hike on AT allen gap to tankard springs

Ridge top hike on Cumberland Trail

  Ok I have a new top ten hike ! 
Devils Racetrack to Tank Springs 
With waterfalls, breathtaking vistas and cool Rock formations this is an awesome hike!   Google Cumberland Trail and you can find how to start behind cove lake.  We parked little closer to Devils racetrack on Shelton hollow rd off loop rd.( ask nice rangers in Cove Lake.Park).  Then we put one car at tank springs trail head. Light 7 in  Lafollate take left half mile u see tank springs on left.   There is lots poison ivy and some steep climbs. Dogs welcomed but on spot u have to climb a latter on a rock. Ledge.  About 9.5 miles one way
