Please be aware that beginning in August, the Elkin and Alleghany Rail Trail in town will be closed on occasion for a major public works project. Heavy equipment and trucks will be accessing the trail. During this time, we ask that you enjoy the trail through the park to Crater Park, which will be unaffected. For your safety, please avoid any construction activity and equipment that may be present on the trail. A sign will be posted indicating that the trail is closed.
While the construction is taking place, why not try out the Grassy Creek section of trail? You can start at one of the 3 trail heads, Issac’s trail head on Carter Mill Road, Grassy Creek Vineyard Tasting Room trail head, or our newest trail head at Carter Falls on Pleasant Ridge Road at the junction with Martin Byrd Road. They are all connected with about 3 miles of great trail.
But Wait, There’s More…
