Uwharrie Forest Gravel Grinder (UFGG) is held in Uwharrie National Forest at the Badin Lake Recreation Area just outside of Troy, North Carolina.
2021 will mark UFGG's 4th year. With the unique "Jeep Climb" in the middle part of the loop, this isn't your usual gravel race. Can you climb the entire way, or will it be hiking a bike?

Race is located at King's Mountain Point in the Badin Lake Recreation Area of Uwharrie National Forest. We will use the King's Mountain Point Pavilion as the parking area and for the start/finish.
Parking will be in the field beside the pavilion area. Additional parking can be found in the King's Mountain Point parking lot. Even though this area is big, it can fill up quickly. We ask that you carpool if possible. Please park close to other vehicles and follow the parking attendants instructions so we can fit everyone in around the start/finish area. We don't have many other parking options to use at this location.
