Sandy Bottom Trail Rides is proud to recommend the following Asheville and Madison County Attractions:
Our 7-mile French Broad river trip is our most popular; carving its way through the Biltmore Estate Property (an 8,000 acre private, protected wilderness) and some of the oldest mountains on earth. All of our trips are self-guided; guests can expect to be on the river for up to 3 hours (dependent upon water/weather conditions) and can see a variety of animals and bird life. The river otter, soft-shell turtle, pileated wood pecker, Carolina wren and the famous great blue heron are all likely to be seen while floating. 7 mile float trip has small waves (up to class 1), easy current, and excellent beginner trip suitable for children as small as 35 lbs. This trip appeals to both novice and enthusiast alike. For more information, go to the Asheville Outdoor Center.

I would also recommend the 3 hour tour. Trails gave you plenty of different types of terrain but nothing too challenging. My 8 yo daughter had no problem on her own and was matched well with the horse as was I. We unfortunately could not go into the gem mine but there are still plenty of garnet in the tailings around mine. The horses seemed to be well taken care of and they seems to be pretty organized there. - Matthew S.
