We love getting outside! We also love welcoming new hikers, and we invite you to join us for one of our upcoming events. Whether at a Monthly Community Hike or a TrailKeepers Happy Hour, we can't wait to see you there! 

Monthy 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 Monthly Community Hikes are family-friendly and take place within Alleghany County. Our hikes are usually 4-8 miles and are moderate in difficulty. Please wear sturdy, comfortable shoes, and don't forget to bring water and snacks! 


We meet at a designated spot and take off from there. Check our Upcoming Events Calendar on the home page and follow us on Facebook and Instagram for meeting times and locations!  

We continue to have socially distanced community hikes during COVID-19. For the health and safety of our community members, we ask that you postpone your trip if you are not feeling well and that all participants wear a mask until we are out on the trail and can maintain social distancing. Additionally, well-behaved dogs on leashes no longer than six feet are welcome on our hikes.

Clean-Up Days

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.


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. These cleanup days are family friendly! 

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!

Trailkeeper Happy Hour

After our Monthly Community Hikes or our Trailkeepers Clean Up Days join us at our partner Laconia Ale Works, in Sparta, N.C, for a cold one! We look forward to seeing you there!
