A renovated historic bathhouse serves as the new hub of activities at popular Paris Mountain State Park. Once a rural retreat, the mountainside park now is a treasured green space in the fast-growing Greenville area. Bicyclists, hikers, picnickers and groups using Camp Buckhorn keep the park busy year-round. Summer is peak time for fishing, and swimming, in the park lakes. Paris Mountain State Park was originally built by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression in the 1930s. The renovated bathhouse, now called the Park Center, preserves that heritage in stone and timber on the outside and on the inside adds a 3-D map of the park, historical exhibits and a classroom for sessions on the diverse natural offerings of the leafy site.

Good hike. Steep at beginning then long grade down.

Great hike, beautiful vistas, good grades.

Great variety of trails.

Parts were easy and parts were fairly strenuous (granted I'm 4.5 months pregnant so maybe it was just me haha) but we really enjoyed this trail!

moderate in places.

We couldn't find any great "lookout" views but around the lake was pretty. By 10 there are many people out hiking, jogging, or walking dogs.

Had a great hike on this trail. Went clockwise so we came down the technical side. Boys ages 8, 11 and 11 all did well. Want to come back and do it counterclockwise.

Nice trail , we connected to the trail that went down to the lake then back up onto sulpher springs to the parking area.
If the parking area is full drive on about 100 meters for another much larger area.
I would rate these trails as moderate at the most.

Nice place to hike or run, very peaceful. There is $5 for parking all day long. Also, there is swimming and camping places.

It's mostly a beautiful trail in a gorgeous setting. We walked the trail counterclockwise. The first half is heavily used by mountain bikes and some of them were pretty wild. The descent is off limit to bikes but was very steep and quite difficult in places.

Good. I'd rate it moderate, not hard.
