Pilot Mountain State Park

As I continue talking about the Mountains of North Carolina to visit, I also suggesting Pilot Mountain State Park. This is probably one of the most distinctive looking mountains of North Carolina and it`s easy to see why. The knobby top of the mountain (nick named "The Knob for obvious reasons), made of metamorphic rock, can be seen for miles around on the Piedmont plateau of North Carolina. This one is located in the small Sauratown Mountain range just outside the main Appalachian range of mountains in North Carolina. It`s located just outside the town of Mount Airy, NC, which is in Surry County. Mount Airy was the basis of the town of Mayberry, NC from the Andy Griffith show. This state park is full of trails, several Ranger stations, and several picnic and campground areas so it`s very family friendly. If you want a unique experience on a unique looking mountain then you should stop by Pilot Mountain North Carolina!
