They say some of the best views in the Southeast can be found at Table Rock State park in South Carolina and this is your chance to see for yourself! We’ll begin our hike at the nature center and follow part of the Carrick Creek Trail to the Table Rock Trail which will take us up Governor’s Rock. We have not included the Pinnacle Mountain Trail to make this more accessible to D4 hikers, but make no mistake; you’ll still be earning the view as you’ll have a 1,964’ elevation gain to reach the overlooks. About halfway up we’ll take a short break at the trailside shelter (built by the CCC). From Governor’s Rock it is just a short hike to the second overlook on Table Rock and it is there we will eat our lunch and hang out. We will then head back the same way we hiked up.
*There is a $5.00 fee per person for parking. Please bring cash for your carpool and the entrance fee.
