Day hike with my Boykin Spaniel.  A few hunters around, but saw no one on the trail.  Great loop trail that I have walked numerous times over the past 10 years.

Today, we started back with our series of hikes from Joe Miller's 100 Classic Hikes in NC, doing hike #36 from the book.  This hike is in the Birkhead Mountains Wilderness area of Uwharrie National Forest.  Following the book, we started from the Robbins Branch Road Trailhead, which is off a small gravel road off of Lassiter Mill Road.  After hiking just a few minutes, we took the left fork in the...

Please note - the time we took to finish this hike is not indicative of the difficulty of the trail, it only indicates that we stop constantly to take pictures!  This is a great hike!  We made this trip in the fall, and the colors were amazing.  Not much in the way of wildlife, except some interesting bugs, a few lizards, and some birds - probably a good thing since it was...

Didn't see a thing, couple bird.  Knocked a couple pine cones off a log.

Very nice rolling mountains and well maintained. Rangers are very nice and helpful. I was disappointed with the mountain top veiws, because there isn't any. I saw several snakes, so be careful!

I really enjoyed this trip! It was a great introductory trip for my nephew - his first backpacking trip at age 11 - and good refresher for me - my first in over a decade.
