This year we have two great hiking events, the Uwharrie 100 and the Uwharrie Trial Thru hike. Click the links here to learn more and sing up!
At 40 miles, it is the longest single-track footpath in central North Carolina. The LandTrust and other conservation partners have been working for the past 20 years to reconnect this trail, and thanks to these efforts it can now be hiked in its 40-mile entirety. This Uwharrie Trail is known for its cultural and natural significance, including such unique features as old gold mines, rare plants and wildlife, ghost stories, and more. Join us for an awesome backpacking trip through some of the oldest mountains in the world, as we pay tribute to the trailblazers and uncover the secrets of the past.
Think you have what it takes to traverse 102.5 miles along one of Earth's oldest mountain ranges? Are you willing to push yourself to your absolute limits as you maneuver your way through the scenic, yet unrelenting single track trails filled with rocks, roots, ascents, descents and numerous stream crossings? Make no mistake, the Uwharrie 100 is one of the most challenging 100's on the east coast. Are you up to the challenge?
A 5K and 1 Mile “BIGFOOT” Run will be held at dusk at the Roy Maness Nature Preserve with emphasis on healthful activities and snacks.
