This is a pleasant hike, but it is not a true loop. Starting from the parking lot, take the Uwharrie Trail to the left side (facing away from Hwy 24). At Bunson Camp take the Kehuwahee Trail to the gravel road and the gravel road back to the parking lot. If you stay on the Uwharrie Trial you’ll go for miles without a turn back.

A really nice, steady trek. It’s moderate when going uphill, but not too bad because the ground will level out eventually in some parts. You’ll see signs of past campers and watch out for snakes.

Started in the Uwharrie trail, on the way back picked up Woods Run to its end, and finally a wide road back to the trailhead. Ended up adding on an extra mile, so 4.6 miles total. Most of the trail was covered in leaves, so a little slippery at times, but pretty easy overall.
