“A scenic spot only 30 minutes outside Columbia complete with unique sandstone structures and a refreshing waterfall.”— Zander Göpfert
With numerous trails through this land, hikes can be adapted for a variety of lengths or traveled in numerous directions for time or ability. Generally, the tread and elevation are manageable for most visitors.
After visiting the namesake rock and waterfall, backtrack a short way to continue east (left) through a shaded stretch of trail. Stay straight with a trail heading to the right (south) and then straight again to continue east. This second turn isn't as important as you'll be doing a loop so it can be hiked in either direction.
Staying with this hike, continue east on the Peachtree Rock Main Trail, making a left to head north for a short distance before another left and then another left to loop back to the west toward Little Peachtree Rock and a short spur on the Little Peachtree Rock Loop. After visiting the Little Peachtree Rock, head back to the trail you were on and continue west (right) back toward the first loop.
This time, take a right and then quick left to follow the southern half of the first loop back to the starting trail and parking area.
