Horse Trail Closures   

All bridle trails have been deemed unsafe and thus CLOSED until further notice due to severe damage to the trail surface caused from heavy rainfall during Hurricane Florence. These damaged trail sections are currently being redesigned and rerouted to make them safe again for visitors.  Trail professionals are currently working on temporary repairs with plans to get some of the trail sections open soon.

Morrow Mountain State Park

Choose an adventure at Morrow Mountain State Park, whether it’s hiking, camping, paddling, fishing, horseback riding, swimming or just taking in scenery on one of the highest points in the piedmont. More than 15 miles of hiking trails and 16 miles of bridle trails thread the park, reaching from the summit of Morrow Mountain to Lake Tillery, where a boathouse offers canoes and rowboats for rent and bait for fishing. Visitors can launch their own craft from a boat ramp. A family campground with 106 sites for tents, trailers and RVs is close by a swimming pool with bathhouse. Group camping, remote backpack camping and rustic vacation cabins give more choices for extended stays.
