Great time hiking up Crowders Mountain with my son. We took the Sparrow Springs Access to the Visitors Center and then took the Pinnacle Trail to get up the mountain. It was a bit challenging but not too bad for my 9yo. I saw people of all ages on the Pinnacle Trail so anybody can climb the mountain! Tip: we spent a good amount of time walking across the very top of the mountain, every time you think you've reached the tip top there is another ridge that is just a little bit higher - keep climbing, the views are worth it!

The wife and I came here looking for a good hiking somewhat close to Charlotte and we're not disappointed! We ventured onto the Pinnacle Trail, which ends up being about 4 miles round trip. Don't let the sign fool you, if you walk at a moderate pace, you'll definitely finish in less than 2 hours. The trail itself is very well defined, and about as smooth as an uphill dirt path can be. The scenery is quite beautiful, the green leaves were completely out, and providing great shelter from direct sunlight. The view from the top is outstanding, you can see for miles, and would be the perfect place to have a break with a little snack or lunch. I would rate the trail as moderate, for the most part it has a gentle grade, but towards the end you definitely will feel the incline increase. We came on a early afternoon Saturday, and it was lightly trafficked...you won't be alone, but you won't be fighting anyone off the path either.

Beautiful trails and hikes, very scenic. King's Pinnacle is a moderately strenuous hike, but so worth the view. I'll definitely be making more visits here.

Uphill climb! We did the 4 mile pinnacle trail. It was definitely challenging and we are both in decent shape. Take a lot of water and a snack (protein bars). We saw many dogs on the trail, but this is pretty challenging so please keep that in mind for your pups! The trail is not flat so strollers will not go up easily. Beautiful views at the top! There are clean restrooms at the beginning and plenty of parking.

Need to spend some money here, better trail signage needed, better maps, replace damaged or missing signs, and at least some staff available to visitors.
