Description

This trail starts at the parking area on Tot Hill Farm Road. The trail climbs up to the top of Birkhead Mountain and then follows the ridgeline to the southern end of the mountain. Though dense foliage limits visibility in the summer, there are some views through the trees in winter.

The trail connects to several other trails in this wilderness area, including Camp Three Trail, Robbins Branch Trail, and Hannah's Creek Trail.

Thanks to Don Childrey for sharing this description. Learn more about the 200+ miles of trail winding through this region of rivers, lakes, and ancient mountains in the heart of North Carolina's Piedmont - check out the Uwharrie Lakes Region Trail Guide.
