Peachtree Rock

Unfortunately vandals have knocked over the featured attraction. Fortunately there is a second less well known similar rock that is a much further hike in and further for vandals to reach. Even with the rock knocked down it is a really unique place. There is a waterfall that is unusual for the Sandhills. The hiking is fun and there are lots of places for kids to explore.

This is a beautiful heritage preserve with spectacular views for the area. Keep your eyes open and you will see some rare plants in the natural pools in the rocks.

Great place especially when the endangered rocky shoals spider lily is in bloom. There is also an active bald eagle nest where you can see fledgling eagles.

Wonderful hike to Table Rock Summit/Overlook. We did it in about 4 hours at a relaxing pace, taking breaks when we wanted, and stopping to view the scenery when appropriate. It could definitely be done in

Hiked and it seems paved the whole way. Aside from the beginning the parking is just off to the side of the fire station--you have to enter the fire station to park.

Bill Kimball - Coldspring Branch Loop

Great hike...Jones Gap Park was filled and couldn't get in...wen't to Caesar's Head and picked this on a whim.

It's a descent/ascent and the Bill Kimball section of it has it's brutal moments if you take that trail last. As well, with some of the steep grades and rocky portions of the loop, there's no way I'd do this on a day that calls for rain.

Rim of the Gap Trail

This is definitely what I was looking for. A hard as hell hike with water falls around every corner. We were wanting something challenging and this was it. Ladders, ledges, and lots of climbing. The first mile and a half is relatively easy - lots of uphill but smooth trail. After that it's very difficult. Like others said, there are places where you literally can fall off - there are no rails. You have to cross slick waterfalls and pray you don't slip. We took our dogs with us and they behaved very well but there were many times where we had to make them wait so we could climb down an eight foot drop to help them down. Would recommend a very heavy duty dog harness. That was our saving grace. All and all a very hard but rewarding hike. If you're gonna do the loop then I recommend doing Rim of the Gap FIRST and then taking the connector trails to the Jones Gap trail. Coming the other way would be impossible. Happy hiking!!

Sassafras Mountain - South Carolina Highpoint

The foothills trail that leads to Caesar's Head has had the brush cleared off so it is much easier hiking now. The first two miles are very strenuous and then it flattens out to a moderate hike and eventually becomes a logging road. It's not that scenic, but it's a good work out.

Enoree Off-Highway Vehicle Trail

Enoree trail is just off of highway 76 in the Sumter forest near Whitmore, SC. I decided not to go to the mountains and do some easier hiking and biking in the piedmont. There's a gravel road which is very quiet to ride a bike on. The trails in the woods are rougher, so I hiked some of the narrow trails that are better for hiking. There are some tall pines and honeysuckle. Be prepared to get face framed by lots of spider webs. The mosquitoes are out in full force at dusk.

Historic Charleston: Daniel Island to James Island

As a Charleston resident, this confuses me. This maps out a bunch of driving routes - not a trail, or even a loop. Maybe I'm missing something.
