Located in the Birkhead Mountain Wilderness of the Uwharrie National Forest, Cooper Cemetery Trail is a 1.1 mile out and back trail that visits a very old final resting place.

Start at Robbin's Branch Trailhead at 5527 Lassiter Mill Rd, Asheboro, NC 27205. At the first trail fork, stay right onto Hannah's Creek Trail. Cooper Cemetery Trail is a spur off to the right on a much slimmer trail. There is no sign for the trail, only yellow painted blazes on the trees. (This trail is relatively new and is not marked on many older maps of the Birkhead Mountain Wilderness). The trail travels atop the ridge line before making a left down the slope to a crossing of Hannah's Creek. The crossing here has no bridge, only a few rocks to hop across (though few and far between). It is a good idea to bring water shoes to ease your passing. Once across the creek the trail travels up slightly until reaching the cemetery marked by a cross and wire fence.
