About our NC Main to Main Trail Region - Piedmont-Triad

This 11-county region, which includes the Greensboro, Winston-Salem, and High Point metropolitan areas, also encompasses the Yadkin Valley Wine Region (a designated American Viticulture Area) to the west, in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains.


The downtown districts in this region are community centers that not only provide the majority of the jobs for local citizens, but also offer a rich collection of locally owned shopping, dining, and cultural amenities that celebrate the artistry of each county, entrepreneurship, and, of course, regional favorites such as Lexington style barbecue and sonker, a unique dessert made in Surry County.
