North Carolina State Parks Centennial: Pilot Mountain State Park

North Carolina's most recognizable mountain became its 12th state park in 1968, due to the efforts of local citizens who formed the Pilot Mountain Preservation and Park Committee and raised matching money to secure federal Land and Water Conservation Fund grants to purchase the mountain and connecting land to the Yadkin River.
