Its been a while since I climbed Table Rock and Pinnacle Mountiain so come and join me and hike this fun but strenuous trail which offers some of the best views in South Carolina. 

We will start at the Nature Center and hike to the top of Table Rock taking in a couple of views and breaks on the way including Governors Rock.  We will aim to have lunch at Table Rock before descending to Panther Gap and then up Pinnacle.  After we have descended Pinnacle we will stop off at Bald Rock Overlook and take in the sights then hike back down where we will finish back at the visitors center.

This is a Strenuous hike, please make sure you are fit and capable of completing this and have recent D4 and D5 hiking experience. 

Required Items to Bring:

Plenty of water
Lunch (for on top of the mountain) and snacks
Poncho or rain gear (just in case)

It is $5.00 per person to get into the Park. Please bring $5 cash + money for the carpool  

Recommended Items to Bring:
