The Surry Sonker Trail is a confectionary trail that showcases a heritage food passed down through generations in Surry County. The trail leads visitors to seven places that serve sonker on their regular menu.
This, of course, begs the question: what exactly is
Sonker is akin to a pot pie or cobbler. It comes about by blending fruit and unshaped dough that is sweetened with sugar, molasses, or other secret ingredients. Sonker is also similar to snowflakes in that no two are exactly alike.
The eight stops on the trail are: Rockford General Store in the village of Rockford; The Living Room at Hilda's Place in Pilot Mountain; Putters Patio & Grill in Dobson; Skull Camp Smokehouse in Elkin; Southern On Main in Elkin; Old North State Winery in Mount Airy; Miss Angel’s Heavenly Pies in Mount Airy and Anchored Bakery in Mount Airy.
