Had a hard time leaving Hot Springs this morning. It’s a great little town, everything a hiker needs. The Laughing Heart Hostel was fabulous; it just opened this season and I highly recommend it. Did 11 miles today and at Spring Mountain Shelter. Was in the hiker zone most of the day and felt good. Next stop, Erwin Tennessee in about 5 days.

These signs are on the sidewalks in Hot Springs, pointing the way for hikers. The trail goes right through town.
