The Uwharrie Trailblazers started in 2012 as a group of trail enthusiasts who started building a new section of trail on Little Long Mountain for The LandTrust for Central NC.
In the past several years we have worked with the Forest Service, Land Trust, and Zoo Society to reconnect the historic trail from Jumpin’ Off Rock on Flint Hill Rd. to High Pine Church Rd. 8 miles of new and reclaimed trail!
In 2013 we helped, along with the Landtrust, lead the first annual thru hike of the entire trail. We continue to hold a thru hike and trail celebration each year.
Message From The President
Thank you for your interest in the Uwharries. Our club is a group of volunteers who enjoy working on our trails and learning more about all the history in the area. We have nominal dues to help us with projects and only have the expectation that you can help us when you can.
We started building trail on Little Long Mountain in 2012 for the Land Trust before the Forest Service acquired the land. We are now working on closing the final gaps in the historic trail. The second to the last gap being from Jumpin' Off Rock to High Pine Church Rd. We hope to have this gap closed next year with the opening of a new trailhead on High Pine Church Rd.
Onward, as we continue our work on the Uwharrie Trail.
The Uwharrie Trailblazers organize monthly trail workdays, members-only hikes, and an Annual 40-mile Uwharrie Trail Thru Hike and Celebration.
