We arrived 09:30 Saturday morning on a sunny cool day in May 2017. Not too crowded at this time and the hike was not bad. Got just slightly steeper near the end of the hike (a little over 4 miles round trip) but not bad at all. Well marked. At the end there were 2 good look out spots so... 更多
This park has several excellent hiking trails, which are extremely well maintained and marked with color rings on trees. We took the pinnacle trail, which is 4 miles round trip and it took us 1.5 hours. Most of the trail is shaded. The trail is somewhat steep for the last .2 miles, but the view at the top is great.... 更多

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.
I took some time out of a business trip to visit the park and hike Pinnacle Trail. It as a super challenging hike and was one of the best hikes I had in ages. I certainly felt empowered after making this hike and tackling it to the top! If you need a feeling of accomplishment, take this trail head on!!... 更多
