Trees down on some trails. Use caution if hiking during this wind event.
Posted on:  Sunday, October 4, 2015 - 2:25pm    

High wind event has down trees on some trails, although trails are still open. Higher winds are expected tonight into tomorrow.

EMS responses will be delayed due to downed trees. Keep this in mind while deciding whether to chance hiking or not.

Park staff will not clear trees until after wind event has passed. Assist by reporting downed trees to park staff. Include location (as exact as possible) and size of the tree (diameter in inches, not height). This will help with determining equipment to take/use for removal.

Crowders Mountain State Park

Companion peaks at Crowders Mountain State Park—The Pinnacle and Crowders Mountain—offer challenging hikes, towering cliffs and 25-mile views of the surrounding piedmont. Eleven trails range from pastoral to strenuous, including the Ridgeline Trail, which links to Kings Mountain State Park and Kings Mountain National Military Park in South Carolina. A nine-acre lake offers choice spots for fishing or an opportunity to try canoeing with rentals available. Backcountry camping is featured with individual sites approximately a mile from parking areas. The rugged terrain of Crowders Mountain lends itself to rock climbing and bouldering with permit in designated areas. A visitor center with museum-quality exhibits complements regular interpretive programs.
