Three Rivers Land Trust is proud to announce that the ExtremeTerrain’s Clean Trail Initiative Program has provided us with a $250 grant to assist with trail workdays on the Uwharrie National Recreational Trail throughout the year. This grant will assist with the purchase of supplies, equipment, refreshments, signs, and other essential items for trail workdays.

The Land Trust partners with the Uwharrie Trailblazers Club to host trail workdays every second Saturday each month of the year on the Uwharrie National Recreational Trail located in central North Carolina. This 40-mile trail is an incredible resource for the area, and has a variety of picturesque and challenging sections. The Land Trust has worked to fill gaps in the trail by working with the Uwharrie National Forest to acquire and transfer lands to them, and the trail can now be hiked in its 40-mile entirety.

Every October, Three Rivers Land Trust hosts a thru hike of the full 40-mile Uwharrie Trail with approximately 100 participants in partnership with the Uwharrie Trailblazers Club. A special trail workday will take place on October 10th and volunteers will assist the Land Trust and Trailblazers in helping get the trail ready for this event. The thru hike event is open for registration on the land trust website (, and has just a few spots left for this year. This year’s thru hike event will take place October 15-18. Please stay tuned to our website for updates on trail workdays and the thru hike in relation to how the current COVID-19 situation might affect these events.
