Highly recommend Crowder's trail with Rock Top trail to complete a loop. Pinnacle trail is probably even better, but do them both!! Great park for people and dogs alike, none of the hikes are overly strenuous.

Going during the week is so much better than the busy weekends on these trails. But if you only have weekends to hike, get out. Weather is just right now. Enjoy the beauty of nature

Loved it! Took the short trail. We had four kids ages ranging from 2-15 had to carry the kids but definitely a nice way to get out of the house. The people in the shop were awesome and very friendly
