plenty of rocks to walk on !! This is not really a hiking trail but you can make it into one if you desire. I've continued along the creek and also hiked through the dense forest in wintertime. It's a beautiful spot if you ignore the graffiti on the rocks. On August 6, 1780, Colonel Thomas Sumter defeated British Major John Carden of the Prince of Wales American Regiment in a Revolutionary War battle.

This is not plotted correctly. It is close to this address: 2000 Hanging Rock Rd Kershaw, SC 29067

Cool place to hang out and picnic and fun for the kids to scramble on the rocks Definitely near heath springs not bethune do not trust the map driving directions use the written directions on this website Although you will never see a sign that says flat rock Road Take time to print out the history of the battle from myRevolutionarywar.com before you go

Not really a hike, but a short stroll. The area has large rocks and a small stream. Good area for a picnic if you have the inclination.
