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.

Trails Update

Statewide there is only one place where 3 major trails come together….Elkin! The Mountains to Sea trail and the Yadkin river trail are both state sanctioned. The Over Mountain Victory Trail is a federally sanctioned trail. Elkin Valley Trails Association, through all volunteer efforts and donations, supports all three trails….constructing, maintaining and publicizing. Please join us!
