One Of North Carolina’s Most Stunning Natural Wonders, Pilot Mountain Stands 2,421 Feet Above Sea Level

At first glance, North Carolina’s famous natural landmark known as Pilot Mountain may look like a volcano. Stretching more then 2,000 feet above sea level, Pilot Mountain is a monadnock located at the westernmost end of the Sauratown mountains and is definitely not a volcano.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Before heading to Pilot Mountain State Park, please check the official website to verify hours of operation. Also, be aware that this state park has a small parking area and once it is full, you will either be asked to wait until someone leaves – or rangers may suggest another nearby park (such as Hanging Rock State Park) instead.
