The Breathtaking South Carolina Hike That Glows Gold Once A Year

There’s one hike in the Palmetto State that takes you so far above the world you’ll want to return again and again, regardless of the effort it takes to get there. This time last year, the Table Rock Trail was closed during one of the worst fires in the history of the area. But this year, you can ascend to the summit and take in the glorious colors of autumn on this breathtaking hike in South Carolina that glows gold once a year.

The trailhead for the Table Rock Trail can be accessed from the parking area at the visitor’s center at Table Rock State Park. The park charges a minimal entrance fee. Table Rock State Park is located just off the Cherokee Foothills Scenic Highway (SC-11) at 158 E Ellison Ln., Pickens, SC 29671.
