HIGH COUNTRY — Progress on the Northern Peaks State Trail in 2023 and North Carolina’s Year of the Trail align in missions to connect people to nature through public land access.

The Northern Peaks State Trail is planned to stretch 45 miles from Boone to West Jefferson, traversing the Amphibolite Mountains that divide the New River and Watauga River Watersheds.


Northern Peaks State Trail Coordinator Jordan Sellers presented his request to commissioners Ray Russell, Todd Castle and Larry Turnbow.
