Your first stop in the Yadkin Valley begins in Elkin
The Yadkin Valley Heritage & Trails Visitor Center is located at 257 Standard Street in downtown Elkin. It houses the Yadkin Valley Chamber of Commerce offices and board/meeting room, a large classroom for Surry Community College heritage classes, restrooms and showers for North Carolina MST hikers, a display area filled with brochures filled with local and regional information for businesses and tourists, and a display room that will soon be filled with information panels telling the story about the region surrounding Elkin.
