You can see the rock on top of the mountain as you are driving to it and it is pretty awesome to think that you are actually going to drive up the mountain to the top of the rock. We saw deer on the steep,...More

If you are in the Mount Airy or Winston-Salem area and need an outdoor excursion, this is the place. The views are incredible. The hiking trails are easy to navigate. (Always choose your hiking activity based on your physical ability to safely complete them.) There...More

The view here is breath taking!! Very easy access to see the view. Even going to the top wasn’t a very hard walk. A few rocky spots. But there are sidewalks that are easily used with strollers or wheelchairs. Stunning beautiful view!!

This visit we did the longer trail around the base of Pilot Mountain with my grandson and daughter . Beautiful views and lots of cliffs and rocks. Great place for a picnic and or to camp as well.

A nice park, near My. Airy, with great mountain views. It is worth a stop to see the mountains from above and to walk about after driving.

Climb to the top, it's definitely worth it. There is also an easy to get to platform with views if you aren't able to navigate inclines and stairs. Get there early, traffic can build up quick!

I enjoyed the drive up to the top almost as much as the view from the top. Once you park at the top you should walk just a short distance to see an even better view. You can also have a picnic at the top as there are... More
