We visited the Pilot Mountain State Park today, it was a little cloudy but we were still able to get a few good pictures.
For centuries Pilot Mountain has served as a landmark for Native Americans, early explorers, and migrating wildlife. This iconic peak is the most recognizable mountain in North Carolina and forms the centerpiece of Pilot Mountain State Park. Rising to an elevation of 2421 feet, this solitary quartzite mountain, part of the ancient Sauratown Mountain range, was dedicated a National Natural Landmark and now serves as a beacon to hikers, rock climbers, and nature lovers.
Since 1968, a portion of the wild piedmont and a geological wonder has been preserved for everyone to enjoy at Pilot Mountain State Park. I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story. Check back later for more from Mayberry.
