Pilot Mountain boasts a brand new visitor center which opened labor day weekend 2020. It has clean bathrooms, water fountains where you can fill a bottle of water, a small gift shop and a wonderful little museum style display about the history of Pilot Mountain and the surrounding area. There's a great description of all of the trails and brochures that can be found in the visitor center . The trails are clearly marked. Dogs are allowed as long as they are kept on a 6-ft leash. There is a family campsite. The view from the upper visitors parking is not to be missed.

This place is absolutely beautiful. Did a nice morning hike with my brother. Amazing view from any one of the look out posts. Several hiking trails with various experience levels. Id highly recommend checking this park out if you are interested and in the area.

Absolutely breathtaking views. The trail is short and easy to navigate. It will take you from the lookout point of Pilot Mountain and you can hike all the way around the Pinnacle which is the large dome of rock at the top. The gift shop and visitor center has just opened a couple of weeks ago and it is filled with nature information in lots of gift ideas. I highly recommend stopping by here. This is such a beautiful place.

Great hike with an amazing view. You can also drive to the top for sight seeing if you are not a hiker. Seemed like great hiking and exploring everywhere in the park. Amazing spot to view the color of the trees changing. Id highly recommend checking out the view from the top of you are nearby!

A great park with beautiful views. Multiple parking lots and a shuttle provide everything from short to challenging climbs to choose how you want to get to the peak. Picnic areas. Some historical areas and a B&B just outside the park.
