What This Drone Footage Caught In South Carolina Will Drop Your Jaw

South Carolina is a big, beautiful state with so much to see in comparatively oh so little time.

Forty Acre Rock is one of those must-see places, but one that most don’t get around to actually seeing. The Forty Acre Rock Heritage Preserve has been hailed as one of the best single-day hikes in the whole state. In addition to the big reveal when you get to the Forty Acre Rock, there’s also a waterfall, a cave and a beaver pond along the way. If that’s not enough, then a couple of the trails wind alongside a beautiful little creek.

Here’s an incredible look at that “big reveal” at Forty Acre Rock.

Although not a super short hike, there are two options for getting to the rock, so pick your starting position carefully. One of them is longer, more scenic and moderately more difficult than the other. You can find a trail map here with parking areas indicated as well. Note that parking in the upper parking area will give you an easier walk in, but much less adventure.

What did you think of the drone footage? A big thank you to Drones In SC for the amazing job in capturing and editing the footage. Great work! You can see more of their drone footage here.

Are there other areas of the Palmetto State you’d like to see drone footage of? We’d love to hear your suggestions in the comments below or on our Only In South Carolina Facebook page.
