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.

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.
