Dunn's Mountain is an 83-acre park with unique sites. Rowan County has a reputation for a unique type of granite known as "Salisbury Pink," and Dunn's Mountain is a granite dome that was for many years used as a quarry to extract the prized pink stone. A parking area at the base of the mountain has a visitor center with restrooms, and also serves as the starting point for the short but slightly steep trail to the top. If you're unable to make the walk, the park offers a shuttle to the top on weekends. Dunn's Mountain towers over the surrounding landscape of the North Carolina Piedmont from a thousand miles above sea level. From the top you'll find a long range view in nearly every direction. You can see downtown Salisbury to the west and the Uwharrie Mountains to the east. Visitors here will be surprised just how far you can see.
