Sunday October 2, EVTA celebrated the official opening of our new 178-foot bridge. We were blessed by a beautiful fall day with lots of dignitaries, trail workers, and guests. This bridge was a labor of love and hard work. Our Facebook page has the details and many more photos of the event. Come and enjoy. See you on the trail.
Carter Falls is located on 50 acres of private land near Elkin. EVTA is working to make this special place into a park. See the full story.
