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.

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.
