UWHARRIE - Community in Montgomery County named after the rolling hills that make up the Montgomery, Randolph, and Stanly County Area. The Uwharrie (u-warr-ee) Mountains were formed nearly 300 million years ago and are believed to have once risen to over 20,000 feet. The highest elevation of this range is High Rock Mountain in Davidson County at just under 1,200 feet.
Today, much of the area is part of the Uwharrie National Forest and has become a very popular day-hiking, camping, and other outdoor activities destination.
