NC Trail Days 2020 COVID-19 Update:


It is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancelation of the 2020 North Carolina Trail Days Festival on June 4th-7th. Though a difficult decision, we know this will help to better ensure the health and safety of all festival attendees, team leaders, vendors, and community members.


At this time, area trails are currently open, though we remind all to respect social distancing even while enjoying the outdoors. Though this is a setback in a difficult time, we are excited about planning for NC Trail Days 2021 and hope to see you next Spring in Elkin and Jonesville. 

2020 Guided Hikes

Ticket Prices for all Guided Hikes will be a donation of $5 to the Elkin Valley Trails Association
