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.
The Elkin Valley Trails Association is proud to be an active partner with the Friends of the Mountains to Sea Trail (FMST) as we promote trail building between Stone Mountain and Pilot Mountain State Parks. Many of you are already Friends of the MST and are aware of everything they are doing to support this 1,100 mile NC trail.
It was announced at the recent FMST Annual Meeting at Elon University that the 2017 annual meeting will be in Elkin. Mark your calendars for the weekend of February 3rd, 2017 as we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the MST and host attendees with a weekend of activities in and around our fair town.
