Stool Mountain Trail is a 2.9 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Pickens, South Carolina that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from March until October.
solitude, bushwacking, good views This trail is not open for public use. The park rangers schedule and guide, trips up the mountain. The Stool sits in front of Table Rock and offers some awesome up-close views of the sheer cliffs of Table Rock. The trail is very steep until you reach the saddle, then it's a short uphill to the peak. From there you scout for a good site to set up. We saw Indian pipe, bear corn and a host of other fauna as well as signs of bear and wild pig. There are a lot of yellow jackets in the area during the summer so be careful. This is a chance to camp or visit a wild place thats close to civilization, enjoy and I'll see you on the trail
