Community Hikes

Come out and join us as we explore some of our favorite hikes throughout the local Blue Ridge Mountains!  Each trail we visit offers an opportunity for you to experience what makes hiking in the NC mountains incredible.  

All hikes take place in Alleghany County and surrounding counties and vary in distance and difficulty. Please wear sturdy, comfortable shoes, and don't forget to bring water and snacks! Additionally, well-behaved dogs on leashes no longer than six feet are welcome on our hikes.

For the health and safety of our community members, we ask that you postpone your trip if you are not feeling well

Trail Maintenance Walks
and Trail Workdays

We're a community of volunteers who build and maintain hiking trails. Grab your workgloves and spend a day on a trail crew! Whatever your skill set, we can match you with the right trail project.


Trail Maintenance Walks
ASTA has adopted sections of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail in Alleghany County and will lead periodic maintenance walks on those sections. This will include branch and light debris removal, clearing water breaks, and making note of larger tasks to be done and notifying the section leader.


Trail Workdays

On the second Saturday of each month we get together to work on our trail projects, including developing new trails, performing trail maintenance and developing campsites. 

Outside or inside, close to home or at your go-to weekend trail destination, we aim to connect you with the volunteer opportunity that is right for you. Tell us how you'd like to be involved!
