Covid 19 Update: The French Broad River Paddle Trail is now back open. To help keep all trail users safe, please practice appropriate hygiene and sanitation measures before, during, and after your trip. We ask all groups to adhere to the policies outlined in North Carolina’s phase 1 of reopening, as deemed by the Governor. There are some sites where multiple groups use the same bathroom. Please use extra caution with your personal hygiene at these sites.
