Hike to the summit of Crowders Mountain and be rewarded with sweeping panoramas. Bring along a pair of binoculars and do some birdwatching or tote a camera and capture the beauty of wildflowers in bloom (taken from Crowder's Mountain pamphlet). Crowder's Mountain is located in Gaston County, NC. While not a very high summit, the views are spectacular, with the ability to see the Charlotte skyline on the horizon. Be prepared for steep inclines, long stairs to the top of the mountain, and rocky trails.

Great hike. Had some fun rocky areas along the way. The view at the top was beautiful but slightly crowded. Went on a weekend afternoon. Would recommend and hike again.

This full loop was super boring. The trail's not that hard especially if you started off doing this one first. I started this one when I finished Pinnacle on the same hike. Also, barely good views.

Love this trail. Starts off moderate but can be almost difficult once you get to the gravel hill and stairs. Push through! You can do it! The view at the top is great!
