Enjoy the gifts of nature surrounded by the remnants of a once mighty range of peaks. Upon first encounter, the Uwharrie Mountains may seem like a mountainous mirage. These steep, rugged hillsunusual topography for the areaform a stark contrast with the rolling countryside of the piedmont plateau. Recreation is plentiful in and around the waters of Lake Tillery and the Yadkin / Pee Dee River. Fishing and boating are popular pastimes. Nature lovers can pick from miles of trails to travel on foot or horseback. And for those who want to stay and take it all in, cabins and camping are available. There's really only one word to describe Morrow Mountain State Park: variety. Use the family car or RV, horseback or canoe, put on a pair of hiking boots or bait your favorite fishing polea visit to Morrow Mountain lets you choose your kind of adventure.
While in the area last summer, we made a quick trip into the park so the family could do the short and easy loop around the summit. It was fun, and the few views we had were pretty. I am looking forward to getting back to the park in the next couple months to hike the mountain trails while the leaves are off the trees.
