|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.
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.
Thanks to the hard work of some EVTA members, we now have a birding map for to show the hot spots on our in-town trail. Whether you’re an ornithologist or a recreational bird watcher, it’s time to grab the binoculars and go. Check the Trails/Maps tab above to view the map .
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!
Check out our Trails section to read about trails that are now open or where we have built facilities for public use. Updates will be added as additional sections are completed.
Recent trail work includes trail maintenance jobs such as repairing signs. But there’s new activity going on this summer too. We’ve had lots of new trailblazing activity including the mountain bike course. Bridges at Grassy Creek Winery and the new 180-foot bridge in Elkin are also under way.
