You could say I put down a few roots in the Uwharrie Mountains of central NC.
In the late 1970's, my first backpacking trips as a Boy Scout were on the still-new Uwharrie Trail.
My wife and I lived there for most of the 1990's and that's where our daughters were born.
I helped build the Wood Run mountain bike trails and maintain many other trails.
There was no detailed guidebook about the trails in the Uwharrie Lakes Region, so I wrote one. Pushing a measuring wheel down every trail and drawing the maps let me get to know them all quite well. I share that knowledge with you in my guidebook, the Uwharrie Lakes Region Trail Guide
I am still involved with the UT re-connection efforts today. I am also digging further into some of the nearly-lost secrets of the area. Look for blog posts and perhaps a book about these Lost Uwharrie places.
But I also enjoy trails in other places and will be expanding my guidebook coverage beyond the Uwharries. Subscribe to my newsletter
