Fork Mountain Trail

I did this as a loop starting at Sloan Bridge Picnic area to the Chattooga river on the first day. Then to Burrell's Ford the second day. Then followed the foothills trail back to Sloan Bridge Picnic area for around 20 miles. A great backpaking trip for my two sons and I. Plenty of water available while you are by the river. The Fork mountain trail needs some TLC more than a bow saw can fix. Getting back into backpacking had a great time will go again.

Pretty neat hike with some huge trees. Probably a favorite hike in Columbia. Saw a family of armadillos along the trail (don't pet, spread diseases!).

Great hike! Took us about 1.75 hours to get to the summit and then 1.5 hours to get back down to the parking lot. Total hike is 8.6 miles (to the summit and back) but there is no need to get to the summit (no view), there is a fantastic overlook at Bald Knob.

Great mountain bike trail. Fairly short too. There are a lot of trails/options to take so don't get lost!

My dog and I hiked to the platform and then backtracked and hiked to the suspension bridge. I hate that you can't finish the loop as I have a sneaking suspicion that the best part of the trail is closed. I had a great time and will be back as soon as they open the rest of the trails.

Rim of the Gap - Pinnacle Pass loop

This is a beautiful trail and can be combined for an almost 12 mile loop - definitely for experienced hikers as there are several sustained climbs, rocks/boulders to climb up and down. The rock formations, creeks, Saluda River and other natural scenic areas are very nice. Dress accordingly, when you get on the 'other' side of the mountain out of the sun it gets chilly. Bring food and water. Mainly, enjoy! Hike on!

A very cute trail. It's a small loop out ot the river with little signs pointing you in the right direction, making it nearly impossible to get lost.
This is a great beginner's trail for kids, or casual hikers who want to feel like they're out in the wilderness without going too far from home.
Truly a lovely little trail. I recommend going near sunset, as watching over the Savannah river is beautiful.

This is a wonderful place for an afternoon in a beautifully maintained garden and trail just outside downtown Spartanburg.

Yes the platform is great, but go ahead and make it a day by taking Gum Gap out to the suspension bridge. It's a hike, with some hills, loose rocks, roots but once you're on the bridge hanging over a 400 foot drop you'll be glad you checked this off the list!
Count on a five hour day if you take the Gum Gap to the bridge.
Also you'll have to turn around and head back the same way you came in because the trail ends at the bridge - for now, as its under construction.
