We stopped here for a morning hike as we were on our way driving to Hilton Head. We stopped in the park office to ask which trails would be best for our young kids (ages 7, 5, and 3) and they were very helpful in planning our hike. We walked along the Jomeokee Trail, Little Pinnacle Overlook Trail, and the... More

The photographer met us in the parking lot. We went up the trail a short way and she took pictures of my 2 great grandsons. Ages 6 and 3. They are some of the best photos I have of the boys. The backdrop of huge rocks, the trees, the rock wall, and the ones that show the far distance, were... More

After numerous visits to Winston Salem we decided drive out of town and check out the surrounding areas. We did not have as long as we would have liked since it was raining when we first arrived and stopped at Mt Airy first. After the rain passed we drove to the top of the summit parking lot and took the... More

Be sure to visit the observation deck for some breathtaking views. You can see for miles. It was very cold so we didn't do any hiking. I'd love to come back during warmer weather.

Recently visited here with friends and did some hiking. Shamefully, I have lived in Greensboro 20+ years and never visited. What a great place. Be certain to hike some of the trails. You may likely see rockclimbers on one of the trails. Highly recommend this place.

Worth while if you love faraway. Even better if your passing through. Go early as the rest of the state shows up to hike as well.

Amazingly cold but enchanting. The hike is worth the effort. We had a blast up there. Amazing views of the county plus, you get to see the neighboring state: West Virginia
