(From the 01/09/2021) Morrow Mountain State Park is the place that we’re going hiking on the Carolina Outdoors. It’s less than one hour away from Charlotte but covers almost 6,000 acres. Stanley County is the home of this state park within the ancient Uwharrie Mountains & the prior home of native Americans. It now features Kerr & Jordan Lake & tons of hikes. Also, available are tons of special rocks created from volcanic activity. Hikes feature views of the lakes & diversity from short/easy hikes to longer/more strenuous hikes.
