The mountain has beautiful views of the area. We chose to do the easier trail around the knob. Amazing sights!. There is also a more challenging trail for the more experienced hikers.

Our brief visit was enjoyable. We drove up to the parking area and walked the 500 or so feet to the overlook. Due to our inability to walk over rough surfaces we opted to skip the short hike to the summit. It was worth the trip.

While visiting Mount Airy, we had to make the trip here to see Pilot Mountain. We were not disappointed. The view from the top is beautiful and worth the drive.
