In the early 1900's Runion, NC was established as a logging town located between the Laurel and French Broad rivers.
Today, a 3 1/2 mile hike along the Laurel will bring you to the remains of the town. The trail runs along the former rail line so it's very flat. The Laurel, is a beautiful river and there are several campsites along the way.
Distance from downtown Greenville: 92 miles.
