Tower Trail ascends the Crowder Mtn. range up a utility road to a cellphone tower. At the top, it connects to Backside Trail, an alternate .9 mile route down to the parking lot. Total RT is 2.7 mi. Tower Trail is a longer, but less steep climb than Backside Tr. Fantastic view of Charlotte skyline!

The view is phenomenal when you make it to the top. Definitely worth the steep incline and 300+ stairs to get there.
