A Miracle in Stone

Record #:
Weir describes Pilot Mountain. Located in Surry County, it is 2,700 feet above sea level and 1,500 above the surrounding countryside. It stands isolated, the sole survivor of other mountains that have eroded away. Over the centuries it has served as a guide to both Native Americans and wilderness travelers, like Daniel Boone. Within the past five years it has become accessible to motorists through the completion of a road to its base.
