“The ultimate mountain race in the Southeast!”— Brandon Thrower
Featured Race - Aug 24, 2019
Soon, intersect the Grandfather Trail and turn left to the summit of Calloway Peak, the highest point on Grandfather Mountain. At the summit, enjoy the view then take the Daniel Boone Scout Trail all the way down the other side of the mountain. Fixed ladders and cables run along this trail near the summit and will help guide you safely down the mountain.
Once you intersect with the Tanawha Trail, turn left and follow to the aid station. Turn around here and retrace your steps back to the finish line at the Old Profile Trail.
