This fully accessible trail is either paved or gravel surfaced and mostly flat. The Greenway welcomes walkers and runners, cyclists and wheelchairs, strollers and hikers. It follows and crosses the South Fork of the New River through open meadows and colorful forests. There's a historic ruin, plentiful resting benches, picnic tables and shelters, and interpretive signs about natural and human history. Two easy loops invite a quick stroll, one of them, with great bird-watching and flower viewing.
The trail may be a little tame for serious hikers intent on high adventure, but it's perfect for novice hikers, families, or anyone wanting to sample the beauty of the Boone Area without going to extremes. Dogs must be on a leash (and picked up after), and rollerbladers and bikers should yield to walkers and runners.
