The Elkin Valley: Devil’s Garden Overlook to Pilot Mountain State Park

Jim Grode

Overview

Features: River/Creek — Views — Waterfall — Wildflowers — Wildlife [Add/Remove]

Section Of

Need to Know [Suggest Changes]

Sections of trail not in Stone Mountain State Park nor in the town of Elkin are on private land and may be open to hunting. Before you run in these areas, see ncwildlife.org/hunting.aspx for information about seasons and licenses, and always wear blaze orange during hunting season.

Except in Stone Mountain State Park, the trails in this section are almost entirely on private lands. Please stay on the trail and respect the property owners’ privacy. Camp only in the areas shown in the Friends’ trail guide.

Please let business owners and government staff know if you plan to park overnight or longer. If you do not notify anyone at the state parks, they may launch a search to determine that you are not in danger. The other owners and government agencies may tow your car.

Description [Suggest Changes]

The trail is marked with the MST blaze—a 3” white circle—on the westernmost 6 miles in Stone Mountain State Park and on trails between the park and Elkin. There is no signage on the roads.

For more information, including camping, lodging, parking, shuttles, resupply information, and trail angels, as well as detailed, turn-by-turn directions, download a trail guide from the Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail.

This trail segment is “actively under development” by the Elkin Valley Trails Association (EVTA) and local governments that have made completion of the MST a priority. Please contact EVTA to learn how you can get involved.
