The Morrow Mountain Loop Trail is an easy 0.8 mile loop located at the top of Morrow Mountain at Morrow Mountain State Park. Blazed with red squares this easy gently rolling trail circles the top of the mountain, offering far reaching views of the Uwharries and Lake Tillery. Start at the circle at the end of the parking area. You can either go left or right. Going left, descend maybe 80 feet to the trail below the parking area and take a sharp left to parallel the parking area across a fairly steep sloped rocky path. Come to a couple of bridges across a gully and then ascend and cross over the road to circle the picnic and shelter areas.

Nice views from this trail that loops the top of Morrow Mountain summit parking area. Good facilities for family picnics. I lowered the score to 2 stars bc the trail is loose gravel and narrow in some areas so the possibility of slipping off on the steep sides is a worry. Saw a lot of Eastern Bluebird and Dark-eyed Junco.

We love Morrow Mountain and all it's trails! You get great views from the loop trail. It's an easy trail that doesn't take long to complete.

The loop trail was great preparation for some of the more strenuous hikes at Morrow Mountain. Great views on a hike me and my grandchildren could enjoy together.

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.

Drive up to the top and do this trail. It will give you the best experience, unless you're super into hiking and want to climb to the top.
