this one will make you feel the burn !! This is the one of two peaks located in Crowders Mountain State Park.The trail offers many mountain laurels, birds and other wildlife. The last 1/3 of the hike is a steep climb with many rocks on the trail and requires climbing a short rock wall to get the best views of the countryside. Be sure and fill your water bottles at the Park Office and grab a map !!

It was a really nice hike. Very easy until right at the end it got a little steep. Nice rock area to sit at the summit and have lunch and enjoy the view. I somehow ended veering off to another trail on my way down but very easy to follow and get back to the visitor center.

Really easy to walk at first, then the incline significantly increases towards the end. Nice view, but a lot of buildings in site.
