If you only take one more hike in South Carolina this year, then make it the 1.7-mile loop trail that leads through the Forty Acre Rock Heritage Preserve near Kershaw. This moderately-paced hike plates up a buffet of beautiful sights, including lots of jaw-dropping natural pools.

Learn more about Forty Acre Rock and the gorgeous natural pools found within the preserve by visiting the official website for the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources. Get more information about the two trails that lead to the top of the rock (including the one mentioned here), from our friends at AllTrails.
