I am surprised this trail is categorized as easy. Parts of it are pretty strenuous. I envision easy as a stroll around a lake. Beautiful views. Narrow path and quite steep in some areas.

I would recommend this hike for anyone looking for an easy to moderate day hike. Recommend that any hikers bring there own water, the water fountain at the top of Morrow Mountain were not on. Very scenic views from both Sugarloaf and Morrow Mountain. Can watch my YouTube video at this link: https://youtu.be/uTD6-2R_x9A

Really nice trail. Secluded and great spot to eat lunch on the rocks looking at the lake. So quiet and peaceful.

Easy access.. thus a lot of people. Kid friendly.

Once you get out of sight and sound) of the parking lot, it's a nice little hike through the woods.Nice view of the lake through the trees from the top of the ridge. Couple of muddy spots in the flood plain, but easy to circle around. Live close by, and would do it again.

Easy hike around the summit at sunrise. Lots of gravel (too much gravel!) and a couple of steep spots... but as I say, easy and nice. Another keeper.

We only took the Sugarloaf loop part and then drove up to the Morrow mountain to save time. For Sugarloaf loop, we went clockwise from the parking lot which resulted in a gradual ascent and a very steep descent. I didn’t mind it much but some people might find the descent slippery and difficult especially with all the fallen leaves in fall/winter. If you prefer steep ascent and gradual descent, the counterclockwise may be better. The views were very good for much of the hike!

Decent hike with great views of the park from the top. Try and go on a weekday if possible, the top is basically a parking lot and gets full of loud kids on weekends. Still worth the effort though.

Nice path, very peaceful. A main bridge is out but there hasn’t been rain so I could cross.

Nice walk, great views!

Very easy loop on top of Mount Morrow. Was a quiet day on top with an occasional motorcycle in the parking area. Enjoyed bird watching in the picnic area

Hiked it this weekend with my kids. Pros: easy to hike with one slightly challenging incline, easy to get to, my kids loved the beach area and played with tiny shells for a while, real bathrooms close by (where you rent boats,) seemed to be plenty of parking, a few spots with great views of the riverbank. Cons: Trees were kind of scrubby and uninspiring, there was some trash on the trail, when we were done we wanted to have a snack but even with a blanket declined to sit on the grass bc of multiple ant-hills everywhere, not much shade bc trees are young.

Super pretty Trail with a great view. Just a short 20 min walk, but nice if you’ve driven to the top of the mountain and want to explore a bit more.

Came here late sept 2019. Briddle and Sugarloaf mountain trail in the same parking lot so you can start on one and finish on another. Both mountain tops (Sugarloaf and Morrow) were very beautiful yet different. Sugarloaf was not too strenuous but pretty covered. Morrow was pretty strenuous and somewhat boring getting to the top but at the top is a lot of area to lounge and take in the view. I’d definitely do it again. It’s very shaded most of the way.

easy trail. wish there was more areas to look out. But in a few weeks the leaves will be off, and will fix that problem.

A nice hike at the end of a full hiking day. Some good views and some wooded areas. A lot of this trail is through high grasses and some is very narrow with scree surface and sharp dropoff.

I did this trail as a cool-down after doing Fall Mountain trail. It is listed as easy, but is not flat and there are a couple of steep uphills. Nice views of Lake Tillery, and the 3 river confluence [PeeDee, Uwharrie, and Yadkin rivers]. Current trail condition is good.

I did this as a cool down after Hattaway Mountain trail. I do think this is an interesting trail due to going to the quarry that was purportedly used bu pre-historic people. A nice wooded ramble.

The Sugarloaf trail was not easy. Even the signs said it was strenuous. Had beautiful scenery and lots of wildlife.

This wasn’t an easy path and is really a combination of several others. I’m newer to hiking and appreciated how well the trails were marked and the signage. There are also nice facilities at the start and the top of Morrow Mountain.

This is a very easy, short, and fun little loop to get some killer views. All ages and fitness level can probably do this little path.

I don't know who said this was easy. This was hard AF. The inclines will get you and your dogs. Bring plenty of water
