Description

This trail is an enjoyable cliffside walk around the base of Pilot Mountain's Big Pinnacle. Jomeokee is a moderate trail with rock steps. It crosses the gap to the Big Pinnacle, then makes a loop around the base of Big Pinnacle and merges into the same trail to return across the gap.

There are rare and interesting plants along this trail, as well as the tall, impressive cliffs that surround it. There is a junction with the Ledge Springs Trail in the gap between Big Pinnacle and Little Pinnacle approximately 0.2 miles from the trailhead.

Flora & Fauna

In late spring, the Big Pinnacle is ringed with the bright pink blooms of Catawba rhododendron. Also abundant is mountain laurel, distinguished by its leathery evergreen leaves and showy clusters of white flowers. Typical trees include the chestnut oak, table mountain pine and pitch pine. Wild blueberry, huckleberry and grape can be spotted along the trails. Watch for ravens and turkey vultures soaring above Big Pinnacle.
