In 1974, the Youth Conservation Corps built the white-blazed easy trail with 17 interpretive spots which is now accompanied by a park brochure. There are also small plaques along the trail identifying various trees.
The trail is actually 2 loops. One of the loops is an easy 1 mile trip and is located closest to the trailhead. If you desire to travel this route, bear left when the trail forks. The longer loop branches from the third interpretive stop. This route carries you to Densons Creek then back again each side crossing SR 1324.
The trail travels through an old pine forest with beautiful patches of the protected running cedar. Along this path you will pass sites of an old sawmill and homestead that were used around the turn on the 20th century.
Drinking water available at trailhead.
Directions: From Troy, NC, Travel SRs 24 / 27 east about 1 - 2 miles to the Uwharrie Ranger District Office. The trail begins behind the park office.
