Pilot Rock is a rowdy, very rock 2.5-mile descent from the Laurel Mountain Trail down to the dirt road. Hang on, as this black diamond trail is no joke!!

    If you fancy yourself a master of tight, rocky switchbacks, this is the trail that will either confirm or deny your delusions of grandeur. Make sure your brakes are in good shape as you'll be using them a lot as you drop 1,600 vertical feet in just two miles, alternating between fast sections, jumbled rock sections, and those frequent switchbacks. Even the straightaways can be littered with loose cobble, so this trail will keep you on your toes throughout its length.
