Tower and Backside Trails — Crowders Mountain State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The 1625-foot-high summit of Crowders Mountain is the shorter of the two monadnocks towering over Crowders Mountain State Park. Its summit, topped with a TV and radio tower, can be seen from many miles away.
The park is the largest nearby natural area for hiking, making it extremely popular with the local residents of Kings Mountain, Gastonia, and Charlotte, which sits about 20 miles to the east. Many people visit the park with their dogs."
