Great trail - a little muddy in spots, but the kids loved rock stepping across the river - just watch out for mountain bikers!

CampingGreat!

Nice trail only ended up doing half of it. Stayed two nights with the family. Passed several nice campsites right off the trail. Just gotta look pretty hard for some good wood to burn most of its rotted right now just a heads up. Nice peaceful area aside from falling acorns at night.

Easy trail, well marked, and mild changes in elevation. Drove up part of the trail to the other parking area further in and ended up taking a different trail that looped around.

Had a great hike but this trail listing should be updated! It is NOT A LOOP! It involves other trails/road to get back to starting point.

WARNING! The Uwharrie trail is actually 19 miles one way. For this specific trail/loop you need to take the service road back to the parking lot at Wood Run Hunt Camp which is just south of the intersection of Uwharrie and Keyauwee trails. Over all great trail! I suggest hiking boat over tennis shoes due to the mud and the uneven terrain.

Beautiful hike! The trailhead is near a road, so the start is a bit noisy. Be prepared to do some rock hopping to get across a couple of streams. This is not a true loop, as ~1.2 miles of it is on a gravel road. There are some nice established camping spots along the trail by the stream. Would recommend this quick loop!

Challenging hike for any level. A few nice hills. I will say that once you get on the Uwharrie trail you can expect lots of water crossings and quite a bit of mud. Be prepared.
