Trails

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.

 

Turnback Trail
Location: Sparrow Springs Access. Begins at the southeast corner of the visitor center parking lot and ends at the Pinnacle Trail 0.7 miles from the summit of King's Pinnacle.
Description:

The trail gives alternate hiking opportunities for both the Pinnacle and Fern trails.

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.
