Worth while if you love faraway. Even better if your passing through. Go early as the rest of the state shows up to hike as well.

Amazingly cold but enchanting. The hike is worth the effort. We had a blast up there. Amazing views of the county plus, you get to see the neighboring state: West Virginia

You can drive almost all the way to the top and hike a little if you have a bum knee. Or you can park farther down and hike a lot more! We only hiked a little this time because of a bum knee. We had a nice picnic also.

Its a really nice place we enjoyed our time there. We got on the wrong path while hiking but found our way back up to our car. :)

Was there is late summer. It was an easy drive up to the parking area. Walked up the easy-to-walk path to see some breathtaking views. If you like mountains, this place is worth taking the trip to see.

If you like the past, then you should visit MT Airy North Carolina. The town is really MayBerry. If you ever watch the Andy Griffith show, then you know what I am talking about.

After a short drive from King, NC. and a short drive up a winding road you will find the well cared for top of Pilot Mountain. If you want to take a 30 minute detour, this is a good bet. You could do take out from either Little Italy or King's Kitchen and enjoy their food and the view

We went for a hike with our dogs. The trails were easy to navigate and the views spectacular. Can't wait to go back and do the strenuous trail.
