Backpack the Dutchman's Creek Trail, Uwharrie NF
Rate this Adventure North Carolina › Dutchman's Creek Trailhead
Added by Conrad Mcgill
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.
