  • Tot Hill Trailhead closed due to storm damage

    Due to severe storm damage, the Birkhead Mountain Trail is from the Tot Hill Trailhead south for approximately 1 mile. The Forest Service has examined the damage and an additional specialist's review needs to be done to protect resources in the area. Following these reviews next week, the Forest Service will determine the best way to clear the trail in the safest manner possible without damaging resources. Access to the Birkhead Mountains Wilderness is still possible from the Thornburg Trailhead and the Robbins Branch Trailhead. If there are any questions, please call the Uwharrie National Forest at 910-576-6391.
