March 2018: Elkin's downtown was the location for NC MST's Annual Conference, which brought hundreds of visitors from all over the state and from places across the country.  The Elkin Valley Trails Association volunteers planned numerous events to experience in Elkin  and the region during the 3-day weekend each year.  The event was held in the beautiful Liberty banquet hall both times.  Elkin's Main Street is directly along the NC MST and downtown will soon offer ammenities for MST hikers in their visitor center.
