The Newest And Highest Overlook In South Carolina Is Now Open And You’ll Want To See The View
The Palmetto State has a variety of places to get high above the earth to see some gorgeous views (Pretty Place Chapel and Caesars Head State Park, for instance). But a long-anticipated new overlook tower atop the highest peak in South Carolina has been in the planning for more than a decade. It began construction in the last two years – and it just opened on top of Sassafras Mountain with a 360-degree view you’ll want to see!
How soon can you go check it out?!
It’s located a short, scenic drive from Pickens. To reach Sassafras Tower, head to the community of Rocky Bottom on US 178. Turn right on F. Van Clayton Memorial Highway and go 4.7 miles to the end of the road. The gravel parking area is on the left. It’s open from dawn to dusk. Parking and admission are free.
