What is the Middle Fork Greenway?
The Middle Fork Greenway is a multi-use recreational trail being developed to connect Blowing Rock to Boone, providing residents and visitors of all ages safe and healthy access to the natural world while protecting the environment and strengthening our local economy.
The Middle Fork Greenway is a Blue Ridge Conservancy project in partnership the Town of Blowing Rock, Town of Boone and Watauga County. $4 million has been raised, one mile is complete, the next 2.2 miles are getting "shovel" construction ready, and the next 1.3 miles of the greenway is funded in Blowing Rock.
The Round Up for the Middle Fork Greenway rallied support with a first-ever community-wide fundraiser by 118 businesses throughout the county. Businesses participated by asking their customers to round up their purchase to the next dollar, give to a donation jar, gave a percentage of their sales for the month, or gave a one time donation.
