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.
I loved this trail! It is rated as moderate and it was a good workout for me! I went with my son and his friend. We enjoyed nature and found many different types of mushrooms, which is one of my fav things to look for! I will definitely do this again. The trail was marked well and it actually is a loop. Other trails I've been on have not exactly been a loop or it has overgrown and I've lost the trail. The restrooms were decent and there is a canoe rental and a place to get snacks/waters, that doesn't open til 10am though. I will be back to rent a canoe.
Excellent view at the top, myself and my wife go several times a year, the trail actually to the top is on the should of the road, which I feel is alittle dangerous and alot of rocks to slips on so watch your footing, we use hiking sticks. I have also kayaked the lake which is very nice , all the way around, I like the dam area the best and sound is most relaxing of the rushing water. Lots of birds, but I yet to see a deer.
