The master plan developed by Destination by Design

Imagine being able to walk, run or cycle from Boone to Blowing Rock along the path of the Middle Fork New River, encountering parks, regional destinations and beautiful natural landscapes along the way. 

Approximately 6.5 miles in length, the Middle Fork Greenway (MFG) is a developing pedestrian and cycling greenway trail that will follow the Middle Fork and U.S. 321 from the Tanger Outlets at the south to a connection with Boone’s existing greenway to the north. It will provide a connection to the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Mountains-to-Sea Trail, drawing hikers and cyclists into our towns and providing our residents and visitors with varied recreational experiences. The MFG will celebrate the natural beauty and cultural heritage of our area and create a stronger, healthier and greener community. 

Ultimately, the MFG will be one of a network of trails in the High Country along the headwaters of the New River.
