Hike This Stairway To Nowhere In South Carolina For A Magical Woodland Adventure

Few trails in South Carolina, with the exception of the 80-mile Foothills Trail, offer the rewards and satisfaction found on the following trail that’s rated strenuous – mostly because it’s all uphill for a strenuous 3.5 miles. If you’ve ever wondered if you have what it takes to conquer the uphill adventure that leads to the summit of Table Rock, then keep reading to get an idea of what’s in store on this (seemingly) stairway to nowhere.

Table Rock Trail is located within Table Rock State Park. The park is open year-round and charges a nominal entry fee. The park opens at 7 a.m. and closes at 7 p.m. during the winter and 9 p.m. during warmer months. Learn more about the park from the South Carolina Parks website, and learn more about the trail from our friends at AllTrails. One more thing: if you’re not an avid hiker, then be sure to get an early start!
