In cooperation with the NC Forest Service, the park is planning a controlled burn for Friday, Feb 8th.

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.

Events and Programs

Morrow Mountain State Park offers a variety of learning opportunities for all ages. Typically led by park rangers, these interpretive programs allow the public to gain perspective into what makes North Carolina state parks naturally wonderful. ​

Most of the events are free, though some require pre-registration. All give park visitors deeper insight into the natural world. Call the park office for more information.

 

Join us for our monthly Read with a Ranger program. Our reading program is for children in kindergarten through fourth grade, but all ages are welcome. We will be reading Salamander Dance by David FitzSimmons. We will be learning how to ID salamanders and doing an experiment to understand our effects on amphibians. To finish we will make our own spotted salamander to take home.

Join a ranger to make bark ranger bandanas before heading out on the Hattaway Trail. We will be hiking the 2.0 mile trail with our dog companions. Hattaway is considered a strenuous trail, so please make sure that you bring water for yourself and your pup. We will stop at several locations to take a break and enjoy the view. Dress for the weather and wear good hiking shoes! Please park in the lower picnic area, but we will meet at the pool.

This is a great way to add more miles to your 2019 NC 100 mile challenge or start your journey!
