Had a lot of fun doing this loop! Missed a turn but made it work about the same distance. Trail blazed were easy to follow and there were tons of camp spots & water.

Had fun, but it kicked my butt. Lots of ankle-breaking rocks and roots covered up by the autumn’s fallen leaves.

Nice, simple trail that's easy to follow. we took several other segments of trails to add on time and distance and explore the area. The fallen leaves make a few points of the trail a little difficult to see, however, blazes are easy to locate. There were a decent amount of people for mid day on a week day but it was nice. It'd be a good trail for exploring with your younger kids and/or dogs.

Great! A bit mucky in places after last week’s rain. But, still great.

Several campgrounds with roads leading to them. Trail was a moderate difficulty. Some interesting terrain but mostly uninspiring.

Awesome autumn trail. The leaves are gorgeous. Rugged in areas but worth it.

HikingGreat!Rocky

We took Uwharrie to Dutchman’s Creek and made it a loop We went on a beautiful warm Sunday November morning. Our 2 dogs loved the creek crossings. Saw less than 30 other hikers/campers. Trails very well maintained and marked. No views and mainly a forest setting. 12.5 on my ATR.

Great trails and camps. Weather was perfect. There were a lot of trees down due to storms by many had been cleared and all were easy to navigate around. Leaves on the ground made things a challenge...Make sure you pick up your feet!

HikingBlowdown

Decent trail for being in the Piedmont. Not a ton of great views except for on the far north end of the trail on Little Long Mountain where the shelter is. Trail is well marked, just follow the white blazes. Lots of good camp sites all along the way, but there is not much water on the northern half of the trail. Treat all of the water too, it doesn't looks great at such a low elevation. Hiked from South to North and logged 27.2 miles total.

HikingGreat!

I hiked this trail this past week. Overall, it was a fun trail and offered limited views. Basically, it was the typical green tunnel. The Dutchman's Creek trail was marked amazingly well with yellow painted blazes along with plastic yellow diamond blazes (with silver reflective center) about every 30 yards. There were several creek crossings, but I was able to rock hop and keep dry. There are (stone) fire rings spread out around the trail, along with several places to camp. I hiked the loop counterclockwise, and I'm glad I did. There is a section that is seriously steep, and hiking clockwise, it would be a tough climb. I'm in decent shape; I like to kayak, jog, Mt. bike etc, and this trail pushed me pretty hard. I arrived pretty late on day one, so I only completed app three miles (that counts the 1.2-mile trailhead), so I had to finish the next day with my 28lb pack ( I know, I need to dump some weight), and I was pretty dang spent when I finished. Overall, I plan to go back since it's somewhat close to my home, but I really look forward to trying some other trails in the near future.

HikingGreat!

Really pretty trail, very rustic, not a well worn path, you have to pay attention to the white markers in the trees but we never got lost. I initially went to the wrong starting point, per the map it appears to start and end at the Baden lake campground but there is no parking there, you have have to go to the cove boat ramp and there is (limited) parking there. Then look for the stairs for starting point. We went in Nov and saw very few people and one boat. With kids and a lot of stops, took 3 hours.

Gravel road runs through campground and trail goes off that road. Don't advise sneakers or being out of shape for this hike (pshew).
