The drive up the mountain was no indication of the beauty from the top. We could see for miles and it was a sunny day.

I have been traveling through this area for years but had never taken the time to stop. Nice small park - with good views of the area and of Pilot Mountain. While I would not plan a dedicated trip there, you should definitely stop if you're in the area. We stopped by in the evening and was blessed with a pretty nice sunset. The area was clean and the hiking trails well maintained. Restrooms were clean. We stopped by again on our way out of town (a Saturday) and there was a line of cars at the entrance with a 45 minute wait to get to the top - we decided not to wait. Talked with a park ranger who was very polite and friendly. Suggest you pick a day other than Saturday to visit.

I liked the trail around the peak, and the little pinnacle overlook was nice, but the views and scenery on the way up weren't so great. The fact that we hiked all that way and wound up in a giant parking lot was also a bit of a letdown. Nice, though!
