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!!... More

Since this was our first trip to this 5,126 acre park and we did not have too much time to spend at the park, we went to the Lake Trail. Beautiful! Very enjoyable and easy to walk trail.

Crowders Mountain offers a range of hikes per capability. If you can, tough it out and do the Pinnacle trail. It's marked strenuous and it really is near the top. Once you get to the top, climb over the rocks, just past the signs, and take in a spectacular view. All trails are heavily shaded. Dog friendly.

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... More

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...

There are a few trails to choose from, some strenuous and some easy going. Great views from both peaks.

The park is beautiful and they have canoe rentals which is not happening right now due to the water being low. The bathhouse is clean and they have them placed though out the park. The hiking trails are nice.

My husband and I have been hiking in Crowders mountain state park every weekend this summer and we are loving it! We take the Crowders trail - walk 2.8 miles, take the backside trail, go up the stairs, take a break near summit for breathtaking views and then go back to parking access via Crowders trail (a round about 7...

We went on a familiar plan to enjoy the sunny afternoon.. There is two ways to get up to the top of the mountain, one way takes around 2:30hrs and the other one around 3:30hrs to go and back to the start (in a normal walk, making stops to taking pictures and hydrate)... You should definitely bring confortable shoes and... More
