Troutville Trail Days

*Please note this is not an official RATC event, but rather something we thought our members would be interested in. Feel free to use the comments section below to coordinate with other RATC members.*

Troutville Trail Days is expanding! Presented by Outdoor Trails, this year’s festival will celebrate the AT and other outdoor opportunities found in our area. It will be June 6-8, with different activities for the public and AT thru-hikers. 

The festival will kick off Friday, June 6 with a picnic for thru-hikers at Troutville Park. With free hiker camping, showers, and laundry, Troutville Park remains the “heart and soul” of the event. Hikers can spend a zero day or two relaxing and “catching up,” or they can take advantage of the free hiker shuttles to visit the other activities. 

The Bear Bait 5K will start Saturday, June 7 at 9 a.m. on the cross country course at Greenfield Park. Once again, thru-hikers race free!  Retail and craft vendors, informational booths, food, thru-hiker gear repair, clinics, and music will be located at Daleville Town Center on Saturday from 10-5 and Sunday 12-6. Event Zone will present a “Party in the Park” style concert Saturday evening, starting at 6. Sunday will also feature some cool dog events at Daleville Town Center. We hope to see you there!
