French Broad River Paddle Trail app at Google Play or RiverLink.org

Thanks to a generous grant and  contributions from our board of directors RiverLink is  excited  to release the new  comprehensive French Broad River Paddle Trail  enjoyment map and app - 13 interactive layers of information to help you identify and locate all the services you will need to enjoy  recreating in the French Broad River watershed.  We told our design team  to make this a
"one stop" application for fun in the  French Broad River watershed.

Map/app layers include: camping, health & wellness,  local attractions, lodging,  outfitters, recreation, restaurants, cafes and breweries, river access, river gauge, river hazards and transportation options--- all the things you will need to plan your river  trip -  be it a day trip or a longer overnight stay  are on the map and the app.  And  the app geo-locates you  wherever you are in the watershed.

For apple users the app will be downloadable from ITunes in April but all you android users can get it now at Google play or on the RiverLink website NOW. 

Along with the French Broad River Paddle Trail map and app we invite you to see, learn and enjoy information at one of the 21 new kiosks we have installed along the watershed that  we hope will inspire you about the flora, fauna, history, people and families who helped influence the French Broad watershed.
