Description: Join me for an out-and-back 8 mile, moderately easy hike along Pilot Creek Trail. From the trailhead parking lot on Boyd Nelson Road (in Pinnacle, NC), we will take the Pilot Creek Trail for 3.6 miles and then pick up part of the Grindstone Trail for another ½ mile to the old Rangers Station where we will have a snack. We will then retrace our steps back to the parking lot on Boyd Nelson Road. For a maximum of 10 hikers who would like to have lunch at the nearby JoloWinery, I have made a reservation for 1:30 p.m. Directions to trailhead: Take I-40 to Rt. 52 North. Head north on Rt. 52, passing Exit 132 for Pilot State Park. Exit at 134, going around the roundabouts, and head west on NC-268 for 0.2 miles. Turn left onto Shoals Rd. Go about 0.5 miles and turn left onto Boyd Nelson Rd. Look for the parking lot up the hill on the right. Directions to Jolo will be provided to those going to lunch. [R-16]
