Trail Overview

FS-576 in Uwharrie National Forest, also known as Moccasin Cir, is a gravel road that splits the National Forest from east to west and dead-ends at the Deep Woods camp area. Along the way, there are several primitive campsites just off the road. Some of them have stunning views of Badin Lake just south of the dam and the mountains in the area. At the end of the trail, the track goes from a groomed gravel road to a very rutted downhill portion of dirt trail that terminates at the water's edge. Although the ground is very uneven and difficult for vehicles with trailers to camp, many flat areas will support tent camping with very peaceful views of the lake.
