Crowder's Mountain State Park

Hiking | 5.4 miles
Instead of doing the Pinnacle Trail - which is done by most - I chose to take the Crowder's Trail to the Rocktop Trail, which follows a ridgeline across Crowder's Mountain. There is rock scrambling involved. The Rocktop trail goes to the summit of Tower Hill and then to the Crowder's Mountain Overlook. I then went down the back on the Backside Trail, which rejoined the Crowder's Trail which I followed back...

My only non-lazy friend and I took his dog out to the Kings Pinnacle trail at Crowders mountain today.  Its a short trail, only 1.7 miles each way (my gps didnt get all the data), but I like it.  Also, its only 30 minutes from Charlotte.  This is only our track data for the hike back down the trail, as my GPS couldnt get a signal when we first got there.

Hiked the Pinnacle Trail to King's Pinnacle, then returned via the Turnback Trail to the Visitor's Center. Good way to burn off Thanksgiving Dinner!

This past Saturday, we headed to Crowders Mountain State Park for a day hike.  The previous week had lousy weather, being rainy most of the week and then a small snowstorm, but Saturday was forecast to be a beautiful sunny day with temperatures in the 50s.  I had only been to the park once before, almost exactly a year ago, and the weather was rainy and cold, so I was really looking...

Our next stop was Crowders Mountain State Park to hike the Crowders and Rocktop Trails (Hike # 27).  It started raining heavily on the drive from Charlotte, but by the time, we got to the park, though, the rain had lightened.  King's Pinnacle was visible although partially covered by clouds.  We parked at the Visitor Center, donned our rain gear and headed down the Crowders/Pinnacle Trail.  At the split, we turned right...

William (almost 12), Ben (almost 10), and I (Mom) did a 4.4-mile hike at Crowders Mountain on a most beautiful day-after-Thanksgiving. This was the boys' 2nd or 3rd time hiking at Crowders Mtn State Park, and I've been myself numerous times. Previously I'd taken them on the other side of Crowders, to Kings Pinnacle. The hike to Crowders Peak is much more exciting than to Kings Pinnacle...lots more climbing and rock-scrambling. The...

Today we hiked our usual and we saved it with our Garmin Oregon 650T.  We first hike up Crowders Mountain via the Rock Top Trail and then traverse down the backside trail.  We took a lunch break at the nature center picnic tables and then hiked up Kings Mountain and came back via the turn back trail.

Day hike at Crowders Mountain State Park.  We started at visitor center on Crowders Trail then used Backside Trail to reach top of Crowders Mountain.  Took Rocktop Trail back to visitor center.  Pinnacle Trail to Kings Pinnacle then Turnback Trail back to visitor center.Not ideal weather for hiking but acceptable.  Poor conditions for photography.  Overcast, temperatures in the 60s

This is the hike from the main entrance to the pinnacle. This time I went onto the ridgeline trail. The trail decends to Pinnacle road. I turned back once I realized the the hike back up would be tough. This is a great trail, I ran into only two people.
