We drove to the top in our mini van and were astonished at the views at the over look. the Yadkin river valley is gorgeous! We saw birds soaring on the wind currents. We took a short hike to view the stone knob and it was awesome. I loved my selfie with the knob. I did the short hike in... 更多
My husband and I decided to check out Pilot Mountain. We are not hikers, but do enjoy nature. We drove up to the parking lot near the summit and there was plenty of parking, restrooms, and water fountains. There is a great overlook for enjoying the expansive views and a great photo op. My husband convinced me to walk up... 更多

We had a 5, 11 & 14 yo with us. We walked the Jomeokee Trail & small children's trail (Sassafras maybe?), which has a nature scavenger hunt and all 3 really enjoyed our day-even though we drove from Raleigh.
