Pilot Mountain / by Dave Hileman

One Sunday after church in Rural Hall we drove a short distance up to Pilot Mountain State Park and took the trail around the rocky dome. Then we traveled down, emphasis on down, the Ledge trail for about 2 miles and then two miles up on another trail. It was hot and exhausting. But we saw nice views, many rock climbers and more than a few of them resting in hammocks. Good choice. And you can see Andy's house from here. Or at least Barney says you can.
