Challenge yourself with a natural surface hike at Caraway Creek Preserve. The historic land is primarily under tree cover, perfect for the afternoon sun. Experience grand views of surrounding hills from the Uwharrie Mountain chain. The main feature and highlight of the hike is the historic check dam, seen from the Caraway Forks Trail - likely built in the early 1900s as a method for silt-retention and flood prevention. This land is owned and managed by the Piedmont Land Conservancy.
