Join us this Spring for the first annual NC Trail Days, a multi-day festival celebrating the great outdoors, the NC Mountains to Sea Trail and our local trails with activities and adventures all weekend! The Festival will be held every first weekend in June in the small Trail Town of Elkin NC located in the western Foothills in the Yadkin Valley wine region of North Carolina.
Bring your bikes, boats and boots and enjoy the weekend on our many trails in and around Elkin. We’ll have plenty of other things for you to do during the festival weekend…guided hikes, adventure film night, low-country boil and music at the Trail Days Gathering, outdoor oriented exhibitors and non-profits, kid’s events, guest speakers, a 5k trail run at Stone Mountain State Park, food trucks/beer garden on Main Street, Overmountain Victory Trail Revolutionary War encampment, REI mountain bike clinics and rides…see “Event Schedule” for more!
3 Great Trails, 2 State Parks and 1 Great Town!
Elkin is at the confluence of three great trails…the NC Mountains to Sea Trail, the Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail and the Yadkin River Paddle Trail. Our small town is also located between two State Parks…Stone Mountain and Pilot Mountain. Tying it all together is the Yadkin River, which flows through the heart of our downtown. In addition, in our area you’ll find a Yadkin Valley/Surry Wine Trail, Elkin & Alleghany Rail Trail, Surry Scenic Bikeway, first class mountain bike trails, a birding trail, and the nearby Blue Ridge Parkway. Oh, and of course…the Surry Sonker trail and so much more!
NC Trail Days is Elkin’s way of celebrating our beautiful Foothills region, our network of trails and our great community spirit. Welcome…all trails lead to Elkin!
