Winston Salem Visitor Guide - 2018 - 58
FOR THE ACTIVE FOODIE
Get an early start at Pilot Mountain State Park, 30
minutes north of the city. The mountain received
its name from the Saura Indians who labeled it
Jomeokee, or pilot, for its distinct quartzite knob,
which has been used as a navigational landmark for
centuries. Admire the views of the Piedmont's rolling
hills and the Sauratown and Blue Ridge mountains
from the overlook at the summit parking lot. Follow
the Jomeokee trail for a moderate hike around Big
Pinnacle. Other park activities include horseback
riding, paddling on the Yadkin River, rock climbing,
and rappelling. Then, head back to town. If it's a
Saturday, stretch out with YOGAmmunity at 11 a.m. in
the Foothills Brewing tasting room. Enjoy an hourlong yoga class and a pint of beer. For a flavor-filled
afternoon, make reservations with one of WinstonSalem's food tour companies. Taste Carolina's
itinerary highlights locally sourced ingredients at
coffee shops, bakeries, and Southern restaurants.
Tour De Food incorporates a good helping of local
history along its walking route to downtown eateries.
Afterward, burn off those calories by borrowing a
bike through Zagster, the city's bike-sharing program.
Download the Zagster app, locate the nearest rack,
select your bike, and pedal away.
