Carolina Environmental Diversity Explorations
Lonely mountains · By Dirk Frankenberg
One of the best places to see real monadnocks in North Carolina’s Piedmont is in the Sauratown Mountains north of Winston-Salem in Stokes and Surrey counties. Here are pinnacles and two high ridges that stretch west southwest from Hanging Rock and include Moores Wall, Sauratown Mountain, and the two Pilot Mountain pinnacles near US 52. All of these features can be seen from the top of Pilot Mountain as in Figure 3.
