Keep Our Trails Litter Free

Our area trails are a great place to jog, walk, push a stroller, happen upon long-time friends and more. Invite your friends and pets on a leash to join you. We are happy to say that trash is infrequently seen along on the trail. Please continue to help keep the trail litter-free by picking up and not leaving paper wrappers and cigarette filters. (Please don’t smoke on the trail!)

Elkin Creek Mountain Bike Course

Elkin Creek Mountain Bike Course is now open! Access is from the E&A Rail Trail/MST (the main trail running north of Elkin Municipal Park). Please be courteous…all users yield to mountain bikers! Please follow usage instructions on the trail.  We’ll announce a Grand Opening Celebration soon!   Until then, here’s a sneak peek.

The Elkin Creek Mountain Bike Trail is typically closed after rains and while the trail is muddy and wet.

Trail Flow:

  • November 1 – March 31: Use lower entrance at dam.
  • April 1 – October 31: Use upper entrance above reservoir.
