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.
The hike/bike trail is easy and great for the family. The hikers only trail is HARD and great for competetive/pro hikers. Very beautiful views and wildlife(birds, lizards, snakes, beavers, etc.). Need to wear very supportive shoe and with the elevation pack an extra bottle of water and snack bar. If you keep straight and go to the next trail then you will run into a very beautiful pond on top of the mountain.
Very good trail and would recommend it to anyone.
