Elkin sits at the confluence of three major trails: N.C. Mountains-to-Sea Trail, Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail and Yadkin River Paddle Trail. The inaugural N.C. Trail Days Festival ties all that outdoor recreation together with three days of celebration. Festivities include hikes and music, and run 8 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday, May 31-June 2. The festival is sponsored by the Elkin Valley Trails Association.
