TANAWHA TRAIL

No matter how many trails you hike on the Blue Ridge Parkway, you experience something new and different. For example, hiking the Tanawha Trail from Raven Rock Overlook to the Boone Fork Parking Area (not to be confused with Boone Fork Overlook five miles ahead) will, for much of the trail, give you a tropical forest feeling. Don't let the fact that you have limited distance views discourage you from hiking this part of the Tanawha Trail.

Shortly after half way to the Boone Fork Parking area, you'll pass a footbridge. Continue up the path. You'll pass the Daniel Boone Scout Trail at 2.6 miles. You should be aware that the Daniel Boone Scout Trail requires you to have a permit (with a payment of a fee). Also at 2.8 miles the Grandfather Trail Extension requires the same. As long as you stay on the Tanawha Trail, no fee is required. Soon you'll here the sound of the falls of Boone Fork. After crossing over a majestic footbridge, take a right and continue for 400 more feet to the Boone Fork Parking Area.
