Backpack the Dutchman's Creek Trail, Uwharrie NF

Rate this Adventure North Carolina Dutchman's Creek Trailhead

Added by

This is a relaxed hike featuring beautiful scenery and fair weather year-round. No matter the activity, Uwharrie National Forest has something for everyone to enjoy!

This hike starts with mellow terrain changes allowing you to get a feel for the trail. For the first 5 miles you will have one or two steep inclines that take a toll on the calf muscles. The remaining 6 miles include a more difficult terrain including a section of the hike called Hallucination Hill, which is named appropriately for its lengthy and incredibly steep incline. You conclude the last few miles enjoying riverside trails and finish off back beside the highway.

Hike the Elk Knob Summit Trail

North Carolina / Elk Knob State Park

There are no bathrooms at the trailhead, so if needed, drive a little past it to the park bathrooms on the left. Park at the summit trailhead and start your hike on the new gravel path.
