Trail Description
About this trail
The Uwharrie Mountain Bike Association has worked hard to establish the Wood Run Mountain Bike Trail System in the Uwharrie National Forest. For good singletrack, do the Supertree and Keyauwee loops. Other trails include Skyrock Trail, Wood Run Road, and Walker Mountain Road. There are plenty of beatiful mountain views and a chance to cross the Uwharrie River. UMBA is always continuing their efforts to maintain and add to these trails. The Uwharrie National Forest is also a great place to camp and you can fish and kayak in Lake Badin.

Review: This is a really fun trail system..it's easy to find, it's laid out well, and is reasonably well marked. It starts out on an access road of the Uwharrie National Forest, then you can hop off that to a relatively new connector trail that parallels the road for the most part, to another parking area. From there I recommend going left and riding the trail counter clockwise (see map). The climbs on the trail aren't tough if you're reasonably fit, but those getting started or who mostly ride flatter trails will be challenged. The descents are fast and flowy, with some rocks/roots (nothing too rough), with some jumps, sloped/bermed turns. You can tell these trails are well thought out and we'll taken care of...compliments to the local trail group there.

Review: I've ridden the new Supertree twice. It looks like Ed Sutton's group re-worked Supertree from the intersection at Woodrun Hunt Camp to the "end" of Supertree way out on Woodrun road....that's all of Supertree not counting Woodrun road. They added 4 short single track sections...one of those was partially done 4 years ago....they finished it. The fire road sections remain but all of the rutty and muddy sections have had drains added or gravel. I understand that the project used 64 tons of gravel....that's 4 truck loads. The construction includes numerous humps or "rolling grade dips". Eds team cleared all limbs and logs from the trail. It was a great job. I hope he comes back a lot.

Review: Wowww!!!!!!! Who new when everything else is closed because of rain the day before this place is open and a great ride. I rode it clockwise and yes the trail was wet in some areas and had puddles; occasionally the water would be draining down the trail. The footing was always solid no mud even in the puddles. Rocky is always in the eye of the beholder the rocks were small to me which is typical sign of an area that drains well. I really liked the 3 creek crossing which was something different. Some climbs could be rocky and rooty not rooty like White water center though. This trail is the next step up from says a Sherman Branch I would sandwich it between Sherman and Rocky River as far as progression in skill and difficulty. The main reason being the climbs, which were definitely manageable yet challenging. Nothing really steep like RRT or non-existent like Sherman. Uwharrie's climbs are long and have a reasonable grade and contain rocks and roots where RRT climbs are really steep and free of obstacles for the most part. The best part as everyone knows what goes up must come down. This place has really exciting downhill drops. I loved this trail and have moved it into my regular rotation.

Review: A great trail with a great workout. I've only ridden it clockwise and there are 3 major hills this direction. So be prepared. I can't help but think how much potential this trail system would have if instead of the end of Keyauwee being on an old logging road, the trail would be located in the woods - like half mile loops off to one side or the other. By the looks of the topography, there wouldn't be anything too steep and would have trememdous flow as it decends to the intersection where Supertree starts. Anyhow, this is my favorite trail and I ride it whenever I get the opportunity.

Review: Rode Keyauwee counter clockwise on 4/17/14. Rode the wood run trail to the camp and then the wood run road to the Keyauwee trailhead. Total ride was close to 10 miles. Trail was mostly dry with some small wet spots until around mile 7. There is a 1/4 mile downhill stretch that is narrow and slippery. I believe it is marked with a slow sign. The entire ride is litered with rocks, but nothing that isn't rideable. When going clockwise, the last 2 miles are mostly up hill. It is a fun and sometimes challenging ride. I drove from Raleigh to check it out and wasn't disappointed.

Big for your workday today out at Uwharrie! Special thanks to Brian Bristol for organizing the work day, Rodney Smith from the Forest Service, and the Tarheel Trailblazers for bringing the most members. We had probably about 20 people out there and spent about 5 hours working on the trail. That's almost 100 hours of trail work in one day! We got Keyauwee and Supertree completely open! All trails are back open except for Whitetail. We had OHV users and horse folks helping us today also, thank you to these folks. Made some new friends today! Get out there and enjoy YOUR national forest! URE!

Review: Spent some time on Keyauwee today, most of the trail is cleared now but a couple trees still in the middle of the run and on the very back end of the loop before coming out on the service road. Still can ride it will just take a little longer and off the bike a few times. Thanks to who ever is clearing the trail, shoot me an email and I will come out and lend some labor, I just dont own and chain saw. Mevans27205@gmail OUt today and Keyawe is all clear and even the return service road. time to bun it up again.... Great trail
