Glassy Mountain Trail is a 1.6 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Pickens, South Carolina that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from March until November.
Moderate grade, excellent views to Table Rock & Caesars Head. This hike was a great little surprise. The trail is great for all ages and the views are excellent from the granite outlook. You can park at the trailhead or drive all the way to the top and walk down the trail to the lookout. Take the longer route, the trail is worth it.
Good short hike great views.
easy hike great views
It was a great hike with my wife and two small children. It was very scenic and the fall weather made for comfortable conditions.
Took a group of senior citizens bc the difficulty level was said to be easy/moderate. The trail had a lot of steep switchbacks down to the beautiful view but it was just very difficult for these independent seniors. Grant it, the view was beautiful, but there was quite a few of us who got tons of chigger bites afterwards.
It took us all of 30 seconds to strike this dump off the list. Let the dog out and he immediately began sniffing a freakin used condom! Then we see a guy coming out of the unmarked trail with am unleashed dog. It's a shame because the height offers good views but the ghetto appearance cancels the positive. Don't waste your time. We went to Table Rock and were AMAZED!
It was amazing!
It was great
The trail head was hard to find and the actual hike was very short. I wasn't impressed with the hike but the view was spectacular! Easy for dogs to go on as well just a narrow path at some points though.
I didn't enjoy this trail very much. The trail head isn't marked at all, so it took a while to figure out. The trail itself is very very narrow. The lookout is steep and smooth and pretty dangerous so be very super careful if you take a dog or a child. There is another big smooth rock area you can climb up, but there's a lot of broken glass bottles so watch out.
Short hike. Trail was marked clearly. Nice views from the top. You can see Clemson University if you look carefully. There was a lot of ticks, so I wouldn't recommended bringing your dog unless it has protection.
