Are you ready to visit Pilot Mountain Park?
We’re happy to share a little bit about our area. For centuries, Pilot Mountain has served as a landmark for Native Americans, early explorers, migrating wildlife and wine lovers.
At the centerpiece of Pilot Mountain State Park is its iconic peak which is one of the most recognizable mountain formations in North Carolina. Rising to an elevation of 2421 feet, this solitary quartzite mountain, part of the ancient Sauratown Mountain range, has been designated as a National Natural Landmark and now serves as a haven to hikers, rock climbers and nature lovers of all ages.
You can explore the park by car, on foot, by canoe/kayak, bicycle or horseback. A 6.5-mile wooded corridor trail joins the Mountain Section of the park with the Yadkin River Section which includes the north and south side of the river and a dozen small islands. This scenic section of the Yadkin provides hiking trails, fishing and includes a canal wall built in 1825 that was designed to deliver boat traffic above the rocky shoals that form islands in this portion of the river.
