I do this trail about once a week with some friends and our dogs. We do the no-bikes part first which is pretty technical. Since I’m on foot I prefer that to the banked switchbacks. Great trail anyway.

Starts out on a fire break road. Rocky by fast. Kanuga is fun. Kunuga downhill to North Lake is a challenge.

The climb is challenging in places but very doable and very well maintained.
Trails are closed to Mountain Bikers on Saturdays.

Fun, fast, and challenging trail. Super Springs to the top is a good climb be not as hard as one might expect. Brissy Ridge is a technical challenge.

Hiked on a good weather weather Saturday and the trail was crowded. But the views and terrain were worth it. Was harder than I expected. A lot of elevation gain in 3 miles.

Love this trail. Our family has been up and down a couple of times and will be back. Views are great and trail is difficult enough to make it a great half day climb.

Not as steep as I thought it was gonna be based on other people's reviews. Signage is good. Not quite as scenic as Pinnacle Mountain trail. I can't imagine how great this area looks when the fall colors are peaking...

Amazing hike. Not an easy one-but I loved it for that. If you are looking for a challenging hike-this will be the one. Loved this one.

Nice little trail. Took the kids on the hike with us and they seemed to enjoy themselves.

This trail was more challenging than I expected it to be! I was naively assuming South Carolina mountains were probably all babies, but this trail is pretty steep pretty much the whole way up. There were plenty of steps that were quite a stretch for my short legs.

The view at the top is great, but I thought the scenic spot a few hundred yards before table rock itself actually had the prettiest views, so be sure not to brush it off just because you’re nearly to the end.

As other people have pointed out no bathrooms along the way and lots of people around the entire time, but with the amount you’ll sweat you probably won’t need a bathroom break.

Be sure to bring LOTS of water! I had 2 20oz bottles and I wished I had more. Also make sure to check in and out in the office before you start and leave.

There were a few spots that were a bit slippery with sand, so wear good shoes.

Nice

Great hike with some amazing views, highly recommend! Trail is very well kept and easy to follow. Governors Rock is a false summit since there is no real views from the actual summit, nonetheless there is quite a few lookout spots along the trail so theres still a ton of breath taking views. Major downfall is the park is high tourist area (ironic being i was a tourist lol) so you can guarantee on the trail being busy.

Loved it! The view wasn’t the best at the top, but the overall hike was great.

Your workout for the week. Not a casual hike. We hiked the shortest, steepest trail up to the Mount LeConte summit in TN. That was a walk in the park compared to this. I gave it 4 stars, though, be cause it challenges you and there are great views.

My 15 year old son and I hiked the Pinnacle Trail to the Ridge Trail, and connected back to the Table Rock Trail all the way to the overlook. We did this Saturday, November 2, 2018. The weather was perfect, but everybody and their brother was there making it pretty crowded at the overlook and on the way down (we took the Table Rock Trail back down). We started at 10:30am and arrived back to the parking lot at 4:40pm. We spent about 15 minutes enjoying the overlook. We hiked this same route when my son was 11. We just can’t work up the nerve to take the Table Rock Trail up, because it is very steep ALL THE WAY. We plan to come back many more times, but will probably come on a weekday from now on, due to the crowds. I would advise taking some good snacks and plenty of water. My only complaint is there are no places to pee if you’re a female, but I do believe porta potties here and there would ruin the experience! LOL

Left at 7:21 on a beautiful fall day. will do it again.

One of the tougher trails that I've hiked. Steady climb for 3.5 miles. Over 2,000 feet in elevation gain. A lot of rock steps and a few rock faces to hike up. Governor's Rock is a nice view before the summit. Guess I was expecting a little more at the top.

Hiked Sulfur Springs Trail with my wife on 10/27/2018. Map My Hike recorded us going 4.67 miles and at 2:46:23 long. We took our precious time and stopped many times for pictures and some moving time lapse videos so your time will vary. I recommend doing the hike going clockwise. That way you’ll climb steep at first and alongside a creek and then come down easily. The trail is well marked and maintained for convenience. The tough part of the trail starts shortly after the dam/pond and isn’t quite as tough as I thought it would be. My wife and I completed this hike rather easily and would definitely recommend it for those looking for a nice hike on Paris Mountain.

I love this trail so much! I often take friends out of town to this hiking trail. The view is ten out of ten! It’s beautiful!!

My wife and I hiked this trail and loved it. It is definitely hard but the view at the top is worth it.

Very pretty hike in Upstate area. Loved the uphill alongside the stream. Downhill leg gets a little monotonous. Took the spur up to top of Firetower. Definitely worth it. All told we were at 5.4 miles.

It’s a nice walk through the woods. Can’t complain

I did this trail on a weekday in early October and it was perfect! I saw only a handful of people so it wasn’t crowded this day. The trail is mainly shaded for the entirety of your journey, although it was still nice and humid. It’s basically a constant incline, featuring lots of rock steps and some just gradual incline. So on the way back you’re at a constant decline which is a nice reward. It’s a pretty long trail but so worth the views. Halfway up the “out” portion of the trail you’ll get your first taste of the views and from there, there were about 3-4 more epic viewpoints. Take lots of water and at least a few decent snacks because the trail is essentially almost 7 miles long in total.

Nice, easy hike. Once again enjoyed this park with my two year old on my back. He liked exploring around the old fire tower structure. I recorded this to be 4.4 miles when using "Map My Run", but I did start and end at the additional parking lot, and used the connector trail.

Easy, nothing special because you’re always in the woods and there’s no “view” to enjoy

I think moderate is accurate. I carried my two year old in a child carrier on my back, and we went counter clockwise. This put the more technical stuff first. The home stretch back to the parking lot was pretty much nice and easy. Like others have said, there isn’t a mind blowing look out or waterfall, but it was a nice shaded hike for me and the little fella to do. At the creek crossing, we saw a a few crawfish in the water which he thought was cool.

Had a great time! First half was very tough for me, but after the halfway point it was mostly a gradual downhill. Completely tree covered. Nice small waterfalls. I will definitely come back!

This is a tough one. Hardest one we've done so far. Bring lots water we ran out coming back down. The views at the end are amazing. There were only a couple of things I didn't care for and neither had to do with the trail. We started at 9:30 and this hike was really busy the whole time. Several people were playing loud music and being loud themselves. It took something away from the experience. I do feel a huge sense of accomplishment though, this one was tough.

beautiful!
