Directions from Albemarle, NC: Travel six miles east of Albemarle on NC 740. Turn right (east) onto Morrow Mountain Road and take it into the park. Travel past the park gate and the park residences. The road will fork and you will want to take a left. Travel about 1 mile and you will see where the road forks again. Bear left to the swimming pool. The trail begins at the pool bathhouse.

Went on a whim to get out while the weather is still decent enough to enjoy it. Went from the trail marker sign around to the left, and it is quite a steep climb. Probably easier to go counterclockwise or to the right of the sign. Either way, great views from the top

Great hike. Simple 2 miles with a solid steep part and some downed trees on the path. One super small creek crossing and not much view. A good little exercise. Overall park is great and by a river with great picnic areas.

Best time to see any views of the surrounding is during the winter months. Fairly uphill when hiking clockwise. Not to bad.

Two mile loop best hiked in late fall, winter or early spring when no leaves on the trees. Big hill leaving from the swimming pool area (you can hike to swimming pool from lower parking area). After reaching the top it is steep going down the other side and levels off nicely. Easily done under an hour. Ok trail. Used it as a warmup for Sugarloaf and Morrow Mountain trails.

Steep hill for a while then easy walking. Blazed side of trail most of the part, no spectacular view at all.

March 2016 - this trail has recently had a controlled burn all throughout the trail. So the scenery is not very appealing right now. Hopefully later this year it will be back to normal.
