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!

One of my favorite trails. A must-hike when I visit family in Gastonia or KM. Gets a little crowded on beautiful fall weekends!

Hiked on 10-14-17. Steep climb towards the end. View would have been better at the top but it was cloudy. Trail was very visible for first time hiking it. This was voted #1 for hikes at Crowders Mtn, but I enjoyed the Rocktop Trail more due to the extensive amount of rocks. Still, this trail was challenging.
