Directions from Greenville: Drive north on US 276 north until it joins SC 11. Stay on SC 11 when it branches from US 276 and continue for approximately 7 miles to the West Gate of Table Rock State Park on the right. Enter the park and follow the signs to the Nature Center. After a short hike on the Carrick Creek Trail, bear to the right onto the Table Rock NRT.
The views were beautiful! After the fire there are a lot of the trails closed off and it's a bit sad to see all the fallen burnt trees but other than that the views are great!!! And the hike up was tiring but worth it.
$5 cash per person admission. This trail has a lot of steps. It was a bit annoying, but a trail is a trail. Took us 2h30 up because we had a set back, but honestly, we could've done 2hrs. 1 hr down. Tip: at the top, when you get to a big clearing, keep going and follow the red blazes, you'll eventually see the lake. At the lake site, there are two ridges you can climb down and see the full view, becareful.
nice trail but pretty hard hike
Hiked Table Rock trail twice in the last week, sad to see all the fire derby but nothing changes that Amazing view from the top! Got my Eno hammock and posted up :) very challenging trail, but well worth the work out and satisfaction of making it to the top! Bring water lol
Beautiful views, went in mid February, perfect weather. If in decent shape it takes about an hour and a half to hike one way. Small waterfalls at the beginning of the trail. Well maintained, beautiful state park.
it's a tough climb. steps can get to 1'-1.5' a part going up. make sure you time it right. we got up to the summit at sundown then had to hike it back down at night haha.
hard hike going up but worth it. beautiful
Great views! A little more than 2 hours up and an hour and a half down! Hard but do-able!
Great trail, steep climb but worth it for the views.
