The beauty and diversity of Crowders Mountain State Park are best appreciated on its miles of hiking trails. Hiking trails lined with wildflowers and mountain laurel lead along the ridges and to the summits of Crowders Mountain and Kings Pinnacle. Other trails are easy promenades through pastoral surroundings. Circle the lake on a gravel path or view aquatic plants and animals along a narrow creek. Bring a pair of binoculars and do some bird watching or tote a camera and capture the beauty of wildflowers in bloom.
Just before reaching the summit, hikers will climb up 336 wooden steps.
The trail includes one state road crossing, and provides access to the Crowders summit via the Backside Trail.
The trail gives campers access to the family backpack camping area.
This loop trail connects with a portion of the Turnback Trail and follows a creek for some portions of the trail.
Crowders Mountain State Park’s TRACK Trail adventures were designed for use on the Turnback Trail, Fern Trail, and Lake Trail. These three trail combined make a 2.1 mile round-trip hike.
The trail gives campers access to the group backpack camping area.
