I like riding there because it offers a lot of technical areas. My friends don't like it because it's a lot of rocky areas. Here's a link to a map of the trail system.

I would recommend taking 576 to 553. Turn left and park in the open parking area there. This will put into the trails where an amateur rider can get comfortable. I would not recommend parking at the first trail head off of 555. This puts you in at the worst part of the roughest trail. The great thing about uwharrie compared to other systems in the area is that it's only $5 to ride. The downside, for some, is that the trails aren't really groomed that often. I prefer it that way. If I want to ride smooth roads, I'll take the bike out on the interstate. Be sure to stop at the eldorado outpost on hwy 109 to get your riding pass.

+1 on what Convict1997 said. For a very new ATV rider there will be a lot of intimidating spots along most of the trails there but with a little experience it's not that bad. It's a slower pace of riding with the technical spots. It'll give you lots of good experience of how to use momentum, throttle response and using your body as a ballast weight to keep it wheels down but just take it slow and don't try what you don't feel comfortable with and you should be good. All trails are two way so you can turn around if you happen upon a spot that you don't want to try.
