North Carolina has many special mountains, but when it comes to memorable and distinct landmarks, Pilot Mountain takes the cake. On the edge of the Piedmont, the mountain—named for its status as a way marker for all who passed through the area—rises from the surrounding lands to climax in a circular peak of nearly vertical rock walls with a wooded cap. The park is now a great destination for tent campers. Hiking and rock climbing are the primary pastimes here. The mountain area of the park is complemented by an additional segment on the Yadkin River that has a living history farm, fishing and canoeing opportunities, and hiking trails.
