A shorter, more challenging hike to the top of Crowder's Mountain.

Features Views

Description

The markers along the trail are more guidelines than actual trail markers. There are numerous areas that you must climb over/up boulders. The views are tremendous and there are several overlooks just off the trail. There are also ways around the most difficult boulders. It is not a long trail, but you'll be breathing heavy in several areas along the trail. Travel up this trail and then down the easier Crowders Trail; your knees will thank you.
