The Rocktop Trail is less traveled and has excellent views. It has a lower elevation than the Crowders summit, but has great views of the cliffs and the surrounding countryside.

Hiked on 10-14-17. Good length with a nice view at the top. Had a little difficulty identifying the trail in some parts. I looked for the "red' dots. Enjoyed the extensive amount of rocks which made it my favorite of the trails i hiked at Crowders Mtn.
