Description

Table Rock Viewpoint (beyond the summit sign) is the most visited hiking viewpoint in South Carolina. It's located in Northern Pickens County with views of it's neighbor to the south "the Stool" and the Reservoir in the Eastern view which supplies water to Greenville County, SC.

North Carolina lies to the North, out of the field of view.

Half-Day Hike: Hike from Table Rock State Park on the Table Rock Trail. Or, for a longer and more challenging hike, follow the Pinnacle Mountain Trail to summit of Pinnacle Mtn. (4.2 miles) then continue along the rolling Ridge Trail.

Gem Type: Viewpoint

Fallen Trees - We completed a thru-hike about a week ago. There are many tree falls, but that's not a big deal. One of the bridges is out, and there is a detour down a logging road with signs marking the detours at both ends.
