Some say hiking in Uwharrie National Forest is best in winter. Warmer months bring concerns of ticks, copperheads and timber rattlesnakes. Hunters during the fall and spring months threaten hikers in off-trail areas.

The Birkhead Mountain Trail may be combined with Hannah's Creek Trail and Robbins Branch Trail. The trail is located in the northern area of the national forest in the Birkhead Wilderness Area. Portions of the trail are well-traveled.
