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.

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
