Foothills Trail: Bad Creek Access to Rocky Bottom
by

24 Completed 2 Reviews

What a beautiful trail. We hiked from Laurel Valley access to Bad Creek access, just over 30 miles in mid-February. Perfect temps during the day with temps reaching 15 at night. Tons of water along this trail with lots of cool bridges. Plenty of ups & downs but nice stretches of level trail as well. We camped at Canebrake on the bank of Lake Jocassee on night one and at Bear Creek camp the second. Can't wait to get back to explore the rest of the trail.

What a great hike!! The trees and waterfall was really cool to see. The Peach tree rock was knocked over when I went, but it still was a cool hike. We took my parents out there and they are not the biggest hikers in the world but they still had a great time walking around the trails.

Here are the directions to the trail, not the waterfall overlook: Off of 178, turn at Bob's place. There is a small green sign saying "twin falls" between a adopt a highway sign and a bus stop sign on the right. It's just past some old trailer homes.

Landsford Canal State Historic Site

It is a great park, but it is NOT located in Catawba, that is only a mailing address. All the ruins are located (and all the trails) in Chester County. The Lock Keepers House was moved from Great Falls, also in CHESTER County. Lancaster County is on the other side of the River, you can see Landsford Canal from there. That said, the Chester part of Landsford Canal has some really nice, easy walking trails and about every time I go I get to see the bald eagles. Come visit Chester County's Landsford Canal.

Forks Area Trail System (FATS)

If you're accustomed to mountain biking in the mtns, this will be somewhat of a let down. That being said, these trails are very well kept and easy to ride. There are some fast areas and some great places to get some air. The trails can get VERY congested on nice weekends. If you're up for a real adventure, grab a few buddies, strap on some headlamps and ride the trails at night.

Pinnacle Mountain Trail

Had a beautiful hike to the top of Pinnacle Mountain! Not a very strenuous hike until after the bald at 3.7 miles. The views from the bald area gorgeous. The last .5 miles to the summit are straight up and the most difficult on the trail. No views from the summit but worth the final hike of 600 vertical feet to say you made the peak. From there you can take the ridge line trail down to Table Rock which was so secluded with decent views of the valley on both sides. The ridge trail brings you to the 2.2 mile mark of the Table Rock trail. the decent from their is Rocky and root filled and more difficult. Happy hiking!

This is a beautiful, challenging day hike that is uphill essentially the entire way, but rewards you with stunning views at the top as well as throughout the journey. My girlfriend and I are both 25 and in fairly good shape, but both considered the hike to be accurately labeled as "strenuous." We took about 2 hours to make the 3.6 mi trek up to the summit of Table Rock Mountain. There are some really cool spots to pause, catch your breath, and take in the views on some outcrops...especially along the last mile of the trail. We set up an Eno hammock at the top with a gorgeous view of Table Rock Lake! It took us about 1.5 hours to return to the base of the trail from the top. We did the hike in February, on a beautiful Saturday with mild weather and sunshine. Not much wildlife besides squirrels around dusk.
