We are just minutes from many local winery and vineyard  locations, Stone Mountain State Park; [Stone Mtn State Park Map] and  Pilot Mountain State Park, both of which are astonishing in their own way due to rock domes and edifices that make the mountains themselves.   There are also lovely shops downtown in Elkin, to add to your adventure.  Elkin is the up and coming place per RootsRated, as North Carolina’s next great trail town.  Check out this article:  NC next great trail town.
