Fall Hike

Fall Hike

Lets work off that Thanksgiving meal by taking a hike around the Morrow Mountain loop (0.8 mile). We will review basic geological concepts, the creation of the Uwharrie Mountains, and how the mountain became a significant resource for Native Americans. Bring a water bottle and comfy hiking shoes! At the end we will learn how to use an atlatl, an Archaic Indian hunting tool.
