Made our first trip to Pilot Mountain and enjoyed it greatly. While we were not prepared to hike the trails, we did do one short one. The views though are spectacular and we wil definitely return for a longer stay.

So happy we didn't drive by once again. We enjoyed a few hours of hiking and gorgeous views. They have easy access for strollers and wheelchairs as well as moderate and strenuous hiking trails. All of these lead to those views! Well worth stopping for...More
