Pilot Mountain State Park

I 40 West, I 85 West, I 73 North, I 40 West, US 421 West, US 601 North, US 601 Business Dodson South, US 601 North, US 52 North, US 52 Business Mount Airy South, US 52 South, Pilot Mountain State Park, US 52 South, I 40 Business East, I 40 East, I 73 South, I 85 West.

This was a roundabout route to Pilot Mountain to catch the fall colors and see the country along US 601. The maples were gorgeous in Boonville and Dodson , but no good photography stood out. The colors were fine on Pilot Mountain. There were a lot of buzzards around the Big Pinnacle and the moon was visible in the late afternoon sky.

Clinched US 601 Business Dodson, US42 Business Mount Airy. Mileage on US 601.

Was this the inspiration for the fictional NC town "Mt. Pilot" on the Andy Griffith Show?

Absolutely. "Mayberry" was Mount Airy NC and "Mt Pilot" was Pilot Mountain NC.
