Table Rock Waterfalls and Beach!
Table Rock waterfalls and beach!
Hiking with kids – yes or no thank you? Seriously it can be a nightmare! This is Heather Husson and I was on a mission to find a kid-friendly hike in SC and Table Rock did the trick! My 11 year old loved it – the 5 year old complained a lot BUT loved the waterfalls (you can swim near one) AND the hike is cool because of the trees. TIP: Do the Carrick Trail, bring water and bug spray and chill near the waterfall for a bit. Also Table Rock has a BEACH! With a diving board into the lake! Not even kidding.
Table Rock State Park fits the bill for the natural beauty attributed to scenic Highway 11. The towering mountain, which gives the park its name, serves as a backdrop for the 3,000 acre park and its facilities. Below this section of the Blue Ridge Mountains, South Carolina natives and visitors can enjoy Table Rock State Park cabins, a campground and an old-fashioned swimming hole on one of the park’s two lakes.
Table Rock State Park hiking trails serve as an access point for the 80-mile Foothills Trail. South Carolina hikers can use to travel between several connected South Carolina State Parks. The Table Rock State Park hiking trails take hikers past mountain streams and waterfalls to the tops of Pinnacle and Table Rock mountains. While the park is well known to outdoor enthusiasts for its natural features, Table Rock also has its place in history. Many of the Table Rock State Park cabins and other structures built by the Civilian Conservation Corps remain standing and are on the National Register of Historic Places.
