I have worked and walked on this trail multiple times. The EVTA has established trail on the old Elkin & Alleghany Railbed. From the downtown old Train Office on Main Street (now a boutique overnight stay accommodation) the trail courses 2.5+ miles one way approximating the original trail by beautiful dam waterfalls, alongside a trout stream, through a park with kids play equipment, view and read a host of multi-modal QR coded history and wildlife signs, a lot of benches along the way, a cool viewing deck over a large dam waterfall, rest stops, bridges of 140-ft and 178-ft, stream restoration projects by the hike, train inspired steel sculptures, gongs for kids and adults to ring, deep in the woods and wildflower meadows, great place to leash-walk your pets (please pick after your pet), very sparse litter if any, good trash system, bathroom at the end of the trail, adding a new 70 foot bridge spring 2019, nice railroad cuts, picnic tables, a 5.5 mile and growing mountain bike and hike trail along side the main trail, on the Mountains to Sea Trail route, etc. Come visit for a very nice walk and imagine the old steam engine chugging along. Enjoy the very friendly community and join the fun of building more trail to come.
We took the dogs for an out and back. 3 miles round trip, along the river. The trail was wet, but it’s obvious the folks here in Elkin are committed to trail development, restoration, and history. Great little spot!
Rode this trail on a weekday and the traffic was minimal. Worth the drive and don’t miss the sticky buns at Todd mercantile store along with banjo music from
Great paved trail following the river around Mount Airy the real hometown of Andy Griiffin and the basis for Mayberry in his show. Plenty of parking at the trailheads.
My wife and I fully enjoyed riding the south end of the trail. We started at the information center in Jamestown. Parking there was free. The Path is asphalt and often provides lake views. Several bridges keep it interesting. The trail has some pretty sharp turns and is constantly providing short up hill approaches and of course, the down hill reward on the other side. Great conditioning ride.
Great Saturday ride! Path is shady and wide.. saw lots of dogs 🐾
First ride around the lake last week. The leaves have really not started to change but when they do it will be nice. The ride was 7 miles. Not strenuous. Caught myself checking out nature and the wildlife and not paying attention to others on the trail. ;) Thinking of getting a bell for my bike to warn people I am coming up on them.
Enjoyed the walk, but this trail does not loop. When you get to the end there's a sign that says this is the end of the trail(it meets a stone road, so you think you can loop), but, you must turn around. Half of the trail has been clear cut of trees with no shade; weeds too high to see much in that area. You could easily loop back out around Mt. Pleasant rd if biking. Definately an easy mountain bike trail.
This trail is very mixed. There a level portions of the trails and then there are hilly portions. There is a stretch that has no cover and during the middle of summer, quite hot, so bring a bottle of water. Lots of interesting things to see and you do walk across a rope supported bridge which does bonce as you walk and an excellent view of the river.
The walk is pleasant and for much of the paths pretty level. Great for biking and walking. Travels outside the close proximity to homes which makes it ideal to get out and take advantage of the paths.
Family friendly my kiddos had fun playing in the Creek¿¿ and it's stroller friendly¿¿
This is a wonderful park for walking, bike riding, or family activities. Very convenient.
