This is a great place to take a hike. We took our dog and the trails were well marked and used, but we didn't run across a lot of people....perfect! We really enjoyed the experience.

One of Randolph County, NC, crown jewels and best kept secrets. True wilderness area with miles of well blazed trails and primitive campsites. One of the better known trailheads is near Tot Hill Farms close to the Asheboro Airport. Happy hiking.

Decent hiking, super fun road to get to the parking lot (hope you have an SUV!), but the biggest thing missing is signage. Would be lovely to have a map and better markers. Terrain wasn't overly difficult, and our 5 year old was able to...More
