Uwharrie Newbie

Hey everyone,

This will be our first time heading to Uwharrie and I'd like to gather as much information as possible before hitting the trails. Besides the Art Lilley Campground and the Deep Water Trail Camp, are there any other primitive campsites along any of the trails? I have a feeling those spots fill up quickly on the weekends and would like to have a back up plan in place. I've also been having a difficult time trying to find GPS information. Does anyone have trailhead coordinates they wouldn't mind sharing?

Any info would be greatly appreciated

-CC

Stop at the outpost at 4021 hwy 109 Troy, NC 27371 910-527-3474 to get your pass and a map. Some maps online are good and some are not so good.you may be able to call them and get one sent to you.

Nothing like a permanent reminder of a temporary feeling. I have a few.

We just went to Uwharrie on Sunday. We just did some of the basic trails but there were a lot of people camping at different sites along the route. When you say GPS are you looking for some MGRS or something for your garmin?

I have a cheapo Garmin. I was able to use Google maps satellite view to grab campground and parking lot coordinates but couldn't really see anything else. Are the trailheads pretty easy to find? Maybe I have enough to get by...

Trailheads are obvious and there is plenty of camping all over.

Oh yeah. It was my first time there going offroad, I've hiked there a lot, and it wasn't hard to find your way around. Also, there were lots of people there. I can't count how many people I saw at the beginning of each trail head with a map.
