Crowders Mountain provide many trails in this relatively large state park just West of Charlotte. If I could rank it 3 1/2 stars I would. It's above average, yet I wouldn't say it's "very good". Perhaps I'm spoiled from spending the last 2 year's in...More

My gym family and I went on a Saturday hike at Crowders Mountain. We chose the path that appeared to be really step and ended with over 300 stairs that took us to the top. It was challenging but the views were breathtaking. This is...More

The trail to the top is really nice and taken care of. The view at the top is beautiful and it is fun to go around the many rocks at the top. The only downfall is the amount of people. If you are looking for...More

Excellent work out for six miles on well marked trails. The views were quite nice - we picnicked at one of the sights. We were greeted by "Bear", a New Foundland that lives on the trail. What a sweet dog!

If you are just going for a hike...there's no need to reserve anything. I did see some families that we heading to the campsite and yes...you have to reserve anything area. I didn't stay over...only did the 2 hr trail.

I’m not sure I can answer your question. Crowders is, well, crowded. If you’re looking for privacy, you’re not going to get it here. It’s pretty active year round with hikers. You likely won’t go more than 5 to 20 minutes... More
