Pilot Mountain is often shrouded in cloudy cover. Native American tales tell of a lazy man who was invited to come to the hidden city within the mountain where people lived in peace free of sickness and there was plenty for all, by a people who were invisible. He was asked to fast for seven days to purify himself first and they would come back for him at the end of his fast. Only hearing the voices of those who invited him, he was inspired and although his tribe had considered him lazy he immediately began his fast. After seven days of fasting the invisible people returned. Having purified himself he was now able to see his new friends and traveled
with them through the hidden passageway into the mountain. Here he lived with the good people for a while until he decided to return to his tribe and invite them to this blissful land. His tribe at first did not believe him but as he stayed with them longer began to recognize that wisdom and integrity emanated from their former resident and they were intrigued by the idea of a land of plenty where all lived in peace.
Deciding to join him they prepared themselves by fasting for seven days after which they too were met by the people from under the mountain and led through the secret doorway into the beautiful land of peace and prosperity.
