Pinnacle trail offers 360 views including Charlotte on a clear day. Not long, less than 3 miles but a serious climb with some bouldering included. Can get windy up there. Camping is walk-in about 1.5 miles over hilly terrain. Good intro to backpacking. Serious rock climbing in another part of the park.
We hiked up Crowders as a family - 2 families actually with kids ranging from 6 - 11. It's a beautiful spot and the views from the top are spectacular. The entire hike, including several stops and enjoying the views takes about 3 hours. We took snacks and lots of water - it's a wonderful family outing.

We had a lovely time camping at the State Park. The hiking is fantastic and challenging and the Park is very dog-friendly! If you are camping, believe them when they say "primitive" and that you have to hike-in - it's not an exaggeration! We were not totally prepared for that, but once we got through the hike and to our... 更多
One of my favorite places. A great hiking experience all year round. The trails are well marked and well maintained. I never go on the weekends and can't comment on the number of people there at that time. I go two or three days during the week and can say there are very few people on the trails. Very good... 更多
