Part of the Uwharrie Mountain Range in North Carolina, these peaks were once giants at over 20,000 feet tall. Five hundred thousand years of erosion has brought them down to their current elevation of under 1000 feet. Of course, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t visit them. Rugged hikes, wet and wild river adventures, and panoramic vistas all come in generous helpings here. Every corner you turn there’s another spectacular view awaiting your gaze.
Morrow Mountain is one of the highest peaks in the range and is culturally significant. Since 10,000 BC, thousands of tools and weapons were excavated from here. Stone from the mountain’s summit was traded among Native Americans and has been found as far away as Maine.
Today you won’t be doing any mining on the summit, but there are grills for a sweet cookout. Check out Lake Tillery for some top-notch boating and fishing. Swimming isn’t allowed, so if you feel like a dip, hit up the olympic-size swimming pool instead. It’s open all summer.
So what are you waiting for? Bait your hook, lace up your boots, and get ready for adventure!
