In the northern area of the Yadkin Valley, on the eastern slope of the Blue Ridge Mountains, lies a diamond in a sea of green trees and hills – Wilkes County.
Wilkes County is filled with the sweet sounds of Americana music and heritage drama featured at the many festivals in the region. Visitors will delight in the fruits of our area at our local apple orchards & enjoy touring acres of vineyards and tasting the palate-temping wines of the lush Yadkin Valley.
Discover wonderful recreational opportunities such as W. Kerr Scott Reservoir’s camping, boating, bird watching, hiking, and mountain biking trails. If you’re adventurous, test your strength at mountain climbing Stone Mountain National Park’s many boulders and rock outcroppings. If a more relaxed atmosphere is your choice, spend time with wildlife as you kayak or canoe down the miles of rippling water of the Yadkin River. You can also try your hand at fly-fishing in some of the best native trout waters in NC. (www.ExploreWilkes.com)
