  • Flintlock Valley Shooting Range to Begin Winter Hours with Route Detour

    Flintlock Valley Shooting Range on the Uwharrie National Forest will reopen today, September 19, at 10:30 am. The range will stay open until 6:00 pm tonight and begin its winter hours.

    The public has to use a detour as Mullinix Road had a culvert completely washout due to the storm and access is no longer available. The easiest way for visitors to get to Flintlock Valley is turn onto Reservation Road off of NC Hwy 109 toward Badin Lake Recreation Area and Uwharrie Hunt Camp, then to turn right on the Moccasin Creek Road (FR 576). Visitors will stay on this road for approximately 4 miles until they arrive at the shooting range on the left side of the road.

    Visitors must buy their pass for the shooting range at one of the local vendors before they go to the range. Call the Uwharrie National Forest at (910)576-6391 if you have any questions and for more information.
