Very warm day for hiking at Pilot Mountain State Park. i checked out the Sassafras Trail, a nice little nature walk with an excellent vista looking over the Sauratown Range. Trip writeup to come at Two-Heel Drive.

Bathrooms at the Summit parking lot are still under construction, which functionaly means no running water available at the summit. Porta-Potties have been set up.if you're going in the summertime, finish before 3 p.m. if you want to avoid afternoon thunderstorms. I've tried the Ledge Spring Loop in both directions now, and it's a surprisingly vigorous workout. You don't expect much in two miles, but there's lots of ascent and steps to navigate.
