Building Bridges Together

Join the celebration for the opening of the Boone Fork Bridge on the Mountains-to-Sea Trail in the popular Price Lake Picnic Area, milepost 297 Blue Ridge Parkway, this Saturday, October 22, 2016 at 10 a.m.

This 80-foot pedestrian span allows hikers to avoid wading across Boone Fork as they trek from the Boone Fork Trail to Shulls Mill Road, where the path continues to Moses H. Cone Memorial Park.

The festivities begin with remarks from Kate Dixon, Executive Director of the Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail; Scott Crocker, Manager of the North Carolina Trails Program; Carolyn Ward, CEO of the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation; and Matt Henderson with the Blue Ridge Parkway.

The group will then set off on a 1.2-mile hike to the bridge for a ribbon cutting ceremony. Light refreshments will be provided at the picnic area.
