South Carolina’s Newest Mountain Hiking Destination Is Jaw-Droppingly Gorgeous And You’ll Want To Go
Pickens County has a new destination hiking spot that features a trail system that caters to a wide variety of skill levels. It also features the biggest boulder field in the state, a boulder field that happens to be on top of a mountain appropriately named Big Rock Mountain.
Here’s a link to the Google map. There is a new parking lot on Big Rock Lake Road for those wishing to climb/explore Big Rock Mountain. (Please be aware that most navigation on Big Rock Mountain will require technical climbing skills.) Information about the trailheads for the other trails in the Nine Times Preserve and Forest can be found at this link on the official website of the Nature Conservancy. There is no fee to hike or park, and the preserve is open during daylight hours.
