The classic Uwharrie Loop.

Logan Watts

Overview

Ride the two classic trails in Uwharrie.
Dogs: Leashed

Description

Start at the road and include the new Woodrun trail (not included in this ride).

Catch Keyauwee at the bathroom in Woodrun camp. The trail starts with a nice climb and several switchbacks before a quick, rocky descent into a flowy section in the forest. After another fast and rocky descent through two giant berms, there's a short, but fairly steep climb where you can take rock garden options at the left fork of the trail. From here the trail has been redone and has a fantastic downhill section before the creek crossing that includes doubles, rollers and a log-ride.

After the creek crossing there are several up and downs before a lung-buster climb up to the crossing of the Uwharrie hiking trail. I may recommend an out and back unless this is your first time at Uwharrie and you would like to take in the classic Supertree as well.

Once you get to the road, take a right and a quick left to follow signs to Supertree. White trail veers off to the right shortly thereafter and you'll see a sign with the Supertree icon pointing you to the left. After a long gravel ride, you'll start the Supertree up and down before beginning a long descent to the creek. Most of the latter part of the trail was affected by logging and it's not quite as fun as it once was, but may be worth the effort if you're looking for some miles.

I've ridden the new Supertree twice. It looks like Ed Sutton's group re-worked Supertree from the intersection at Woodrun Hunt Camp to the "end" of Supertree way out on Woodrun road....that's all of Supertree not counting Woodrun road. They added 4 short single track sections...one of those was partially done 4 years ago....they finished it. The fire road sections remain but all of the rutty and muddy sections have had drains added or gravel. I understand that the project used 64 tons of gravel....that's 4 truck loads. The construction includes numerous humps or "rolling grade dips". Eds team cleared all limbs and logs from the trail. It was a great job. I hope he comes back a lot. Jan 21, 2016
