Hiking and Horse Trail Closures   

Three Rivers Trail remains closed from storm damage, bridge washouts and bank erosion. 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 will need to be redesigned and rerouted to make them safe again for visitors.

Education

Rangers hold regularly scheduled educational and interpretive programs about Morrow Mountain State Park. Check the Events calendar for more information.

To arrange a special exploration of Morrow Mountain State Park for your group or class, contact the park office.

Educational materials about Morrow Mountain State Park have been developed for grades 5-7 and are correlated to North Carolina's competency-based curriculum in science, social studies, mathematics and English/language arts. The Morrow Mountain program introduces students to the basic geologic processes of the Uwharrie Mountains. Accompanying the program is a teacher's booklet and workshop, free of charge to educators. 

Exhibit Hall and Historic Site

Explore the history of Morrow Mountain. The exhibit hall is located in a building near the park office and is open from 10am until 5pm daily. The hall includes exhibits about American Indians, plant and animal communities, early explorers and rocks and minerals.

Visit the homestead of a 19th-century doctor, Dr. Francis Kron, the first physician in the area. His home, doctor's office and infirmary, and greenhouse were reconstructed in the 1960s and appear today much as they did in 1870. The grounds are open during park hours and are a short drive from the park office. The house is open in the summer on Sundays from 2pm to 3pm.
