Hiking around Elkin

Any good suggestions for a 2-3 hour easy hike in the area? Or anything else interesting to do?

In town for a weekend wedding and have all day Saturday to hike or sight see. No vineyard hopping please.

Stone Mountain State Park is only about 10 miles north of Elkin, and offers great hiking. Here's a link to the activities there (click on "trails" for hiking info):

Hope you enjoy your visit!

Also, I forgot to add...if you've never been on the Blue Ridge Parkway, you may want to drive it for a while. It intersects US 21 north of Elkin. You could drive from there to Fancy Gap, VA, then return to Elkin via I-77. The leaves should be spectacular over the next couple of weeks.
