Pilot Mountain State Park is located 20 miles NW of Winston-Salem, NC. Just like other NC State Park “every single trail” routes (see UmsteadEno River, Morrow Mountain, Medoc Mountain), the idea here is to complete all of the following official park trails in a single, non-stop effort:

  • Bean Shoals Canal
  • Corridor
  • Grassy Ridge
  • Grindstone
  • Horne Creek
  • Ivy Bluff
  • Jomeokee
  • Ledge Spring
  • Little Pinnacle
  • Mountain
  • Mountains-to-Sea
  • Pilot Creek
  • Sassafras
  • Yadkin Islands*
  • Yadkin River Park

*Per park website: Hikers may cross the river at your own risk to explore the islands in the river, which are unmarked and unblazed. Do not attempt to cross the river if you cannot see the bottom.

Thank you for the strava link, Matt! I’ll be attempting this FKT on Saturday.
