The Boone Fork rises as a tiny tributary falling off the eastern flank of Grandfather Mountain and then flows a few miles before being backed up by Price Lake. Price Lake is small and man-made with a spillover dam. This run is available only during, or immediately after, serious rainfall because of its tiny watershed. The first 1.5 miles of the run is easy Class I–II. After coming to the old washed-out timber bridge, you’ll go 200 yards to the first portage. This section drops 100 feet in less than 100 yards.
