Pilot Mountain State Park
Rising more than 2,000 feet, the quartzite knob of Pilot Mountain has been a navigational landmark for centuries, and is a recreational landmark as well.
The mountain is the anchor of Pilot Mountain State Park, which offers miles of trails, camping, climbing and spectacular scenery. The mountain summit remains the principal park area. The most popular trail is the Jomeokee Trail, which circumnavigates the midway point of the peak, offering great views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Sauratown Mountains, and the city skylines of Winston-Salem and Greensboro.
The extensive trail network includes the Corridor Trail, which accommodates both hiking and horseback riding. There is family camping in a 42-site campground, and rock climbing and rappelling are allowed on portions of the park’s steep cliffs.
A new, interactive visitors center is scheduled to open in late 2020.
