Your Hikes
» Crowders Mountain Loop, Crowders Mountain SP
Short on time? Assistant organizer Stuart Jones recommends this fast 5.2-miler. “It’s best in May when the dogwoods and mountain laurel burst into bloom,” says Jones. “From the Rocktop Trail, you can see hawks and vultures soaring.” Miles from city center 34; Trip ID 50172

» Tanawha Trail, Pisgah NF On this 12.5-mile point-to-point, you’ll almost always be in the shadow of 5,946-foot Grandfather Mountain’s sloping summit. The rest of the hike, you’ll cross streams cascading through hemlocks and enjoy sprawling views as the terrain drops away at numerous overlooks. Miles from city center 110; Trip ID 44934
