It’s hard to beat the awe-inspiring mountain views of the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina. Craggy Pinnacle trail is a short/easy trail with a large panoramic viewing platform at the top and another smaller platform just below. Since this is a short hike with a spectacular pay-off, it is CROWDED! If busy hikes are not your thing, I would definitely avoid a weekend day here. It would probably be best to go early in the morning on a weekday. We enjoy trails where we see a few people along the way, but not a constant stream of people. Our boys are full of energy, so when it is crowded I feel like I have to continuously be reminding them to settle down and be mindful of everyone else around. While teaching trail etiquette is very important, I also like to get the boys in the woods so they can run, play, and be kids. So all that being said, crowded trails are not our favorite. The views at Craggy Pinnacle have definitely been worth the two trips we have taken here though!
