Paris Mountain State Park is one of the Jewels of the Upstate. 20 minutes from downtown and you are in wilderness, for hiking, camping, fishing or just plain relaxing. Stunning in its beauty.

This park is a regular stop for our family since it is the closest state park to Greenville. We love the hiking trails, and we love the way you can feel a world away from civilization with such a short drive.

I rode some of the trails out here and they were a good time. They aren't too steep and rocky. Trails are clearly marked and well kept.

This is one of the highest elevations in Greenville SC. A park used by everyone, from joggers, hikers, families, bicyclists, pet owners, campers and more! This place has multiple levels and waterfalls. Rangers are friendly and very helpful. The fall is a beautiful time when foliage begins to change! Admission is $5 per person. I bought a SC park pass... More

We have lived in Greenville for two months and we have already bought a season pass to this beautiful mountain state park. Drive, hike, bike; it's your choice. There is kayaking, boating, swimming, picnicking and peddle boats. Clean bathrooms are available most everywhere. Beautiful scenery throughout the driving trail as well as the hiking trails. Great place for a family... More

Out cruising around checking on neighborhoods and homes and we drove up to Paris Mountain. Very close to Greenville and it is a beautiful park. Great place to hike or have a picnic.

When my wife and I pulled up for the first time and they charged us $10 I was ready to go home. But when I found out that for $50 you get unlimited access to every state park (except the 4 on the coast) for a year and that my $10 would go to that $50 price, I knew that... More
