"When hikers mention the Boone Fork Loop, 25-foot Boone Fork Falls rarely receives deserving accolades. Even though it is a pretty cascade, the falls are upstaged by a creek with the celebrated Boone name, a forest that was cut by one famous person and bought by another, and a hiking trail that is one of the best along the entire Blue Ridge Parkway."

"Whether you have an RV, school bus, or are an individual wanting to hike, the lovely Julian Price Picnic Area has plenty of parking. The trail follows Bee Tree Creek and Boone Fork for a few miles. If you’re not up for hiking the full loop, you can make this an out and back. Either way, you and the dogs are sure to enjoy it. Within the recreation area you can camp, hike, paddle, or fish from the banks of the glorious Price Lake." Read more
