Boone Fork Trail Running: For those seeking a challenge, the 5 mile Boone Fork Trail is one of the High Country’s most stimulating and challenging running experiences. The difficulties of running this trail are legendary, making it a challenge best suited for only the most experienced trail runners. The combination of creek crossings, large boulder fields, and steep terrain intertwined with one of the most beautiful forest settings the area has to offer make it a trail that is not to be missed.
