This loop trial is one of my favorites. My wife and I ended here by chance as we were headed to another hiking trail (White Water Falls) when we saw the sign for Whiteside Mountain. It's an easy hike suitable for children. Stunning views with a gradual incline makes getting to the top of the trail relatively easy. You can see the Eastern Continental Divide from the top of this trail. Peregrine Falcons nest here. We only saw one flying above us. Very nice hike will definitely do it again!

Awesome hike! Definitely on the harder side of easy because of the elevation change going up, but coming down is a breeze. View at the top is spectacular!! If you are afraid of heights, like myself, get the courage to go up the fire tower at the top. Absolutely worth it!

It's an uphill hike that can get cha winded if you're bookin it, but it was amazing. The views from the tower were incredible and the trail itself was just really lovely. Feels like a mile uphill though.

Just the right amount of trail to work up a little sweat. There weren't any overlooks but the large trees were definitely worth seeing.

Nice little loop with great views! Takes about 2 hours to complete.

PS: Lots of traffic on that day, when I arrived around 10:30am the parking lot was already full.

Moderate hike- seemed on short side but I forgot to time. Maybe 3 hours including stopping for lunch? Falls very pretty , but Rainbow Falls most impressive. Lots of folks out on a pretty October Saturday. Didn't know to look for Stairstep Falls. About a mile hike from visitor center is another one, Bearwallow Falls, pretty but partly obscured by brush. You also walk by a nice overlook to see Lakes Keeowee and Jocassee.
