Within the Uwharrie National Forest this is the only trail dedicated solely to hikers. The other perk is that this lengthy loop trail gives you the best of both worlds. It keeps you near the shoreline while the forest protects you from the sun’s rays. The trail is easy to follow, and there are several swimming holes where both you and the dogs can enjoy a refreshing dip in the inviting Badin Lake.
