The trail is named for the point where the Yadkin River becomes the Pee Dee River and intersects with the Uwharrie River. It is great for a short and easy family hike. The trail traverses a floodplain and a small ridgetop. Wildflowers such as spring beauties, wing stem and trumpet creeper bloom at different times of the year. River birch and sycamore trees can be found in the low ares, with many chestnut oak and American beech on the ridgetop.

If you want to skip the 80ft hill, take a left when you come in and go out the same way. Nice walk beside the river with pretty views.

This is a nice short hike, and good for families with small children. There are several pretty views along the edge of the river. It includes a quick climb to a small ridgetop.
