Morrow Mountain State Park: Fall Mountain Professional Review and Guide
"This scenic loop at Morrow Mountain is one of the best hikes to the east of Charlotte. However, it has unfortunately been closed for over a year and a half because of damage to the boardwalks near the Yadkin River. There are plans to reopen this diverse route in the future. Be sure you call before visiting the park to check on the status of the trail. The loop starts near the banks of the Yadkin River and then does a quick warm-up hike on the Three Rivers Trail. When the path returns to the trailhead, it veers inland on the Fall Mountain Loop. The narrow dirt path travels through a beautiful mixed hardwood and pine forest and parallels a small stream before starting its gradual climb to the top of Fall Mountain. The ascent is challenging but manageable, and before you know it youll be walking on a level ridgeline. At the north end of the ridge, the trail will loop back to the parking lot on a new and exciting reroute!"
