There are black features on Boyfriend South. You can easily choose to walk these sections.

The Big Boyfriend Loop will take you on a tour of most of the trails right in town from the river park. Ramsour, Camp Elevation, Boyfriend South, Boyfriend North, and North trail are my preferred direction of travel, but try it both ways and decide for yourself
