Sauratown Trail

An official section of the NC Mountains to the Sea Trail that connects Pilot Mountain State Park on the west side and Hanging Rock State Park on the east side. The trail is approximately 35 miles long. Trails are open most of the year to all horseback riders and hikers.

The Sauratown Trails are open most of the year to all horseback riders and hikers. Bikes and motorized vehicles are not allowed. For your safety, the trails are closed only during deer hunting season (November to January) and wet, muddy conditions. When Pilot Mtn State Park closes their trails due to wet weather, Sauratown Trails are also closed. Please check the State Park website for trail closure notices if there is any question.
