While up in Uwharrie the last couple of nights one of the members of the above group (Mtn Bike) was informing folks on plans for the Uwharrie Trail.
The plan is to run the UT north from the Northern Trail Head ( Jumping Off Rock ) to the Birkhead Trail. The first mile or so north has been blazed already.
The plan is to make the UT somewhere around 50 miles.
They have a survey for bikers and hikers at the site.
