- There may be construction traffic crossing Section 7 during week days. Heavy machinery may also be operating near the trail.
- Just a few reminders... - Please do not bring dogs on the trail with you. Your dogs can go over to the neighbors and pick fights with their dogs . This creates ill feelings with the landowners who then may decide they don't want the trail on their land anymore. Please remember the Sauratown Trail crosses private property and we need to respect the landowner wishes in order to keep the trail open. Thanks!
- If there are any groups that want to plan an organized ride or hike please meet with STA members at least 60 days ahead of the date to discuss requirements.
Sections 2, 3, and 15 are currently closed
Sections 2 & 3 (between Mickey Road and NC-66) are permanently closed to all users.
A road detour is available for thru-hikers, but it is not appropriate for equestrians. The detour involves NC-66, which is a very curvy road with fast traffic and little road shoulder.
STA is working to establish a new trail route for this area, and help will eventually be needed with trail construction. If you are interested in helping work on the trail, please contact us about being placed on our trail work email list. STA is sorry for any inconvenience this may cause trail users.
Section 15 is closed but there is a way around it: As you leave Pilot Mtn Park heading east towards Sauratown Mtn, you need to stay on the roads until you reach the Old Winston/Coon Rd parking lot. Leave Pilot Mtn Park, stay on Pilot Knob Park Road and turn left when you reach Old Winston Road. Continue down Old Winston Rd. until you reach the gravel parking lot with the railroad tracks (on the right). At the farthest end of the lot near Coon Rd. is the trail entrance. It's about 2 miles from the State Park to the parking lot.
TBA - when someone has either hiked or ridden the trail.
If you are on any of the Sauratown Trails and run into a problem of downed trees or washed out trails, please let us know. (See 'About Us' page.)
