Not at all far from Greenville and Taylors SC. But when you're there, you feel like you're thousands and thousands of miles away. Great place for lots of activities. Even nice just to ride through and look at nature. Great for family, couples, teens, small kids, and older adults. An all around great place to go.

Lots of nice walks in the woods. Ample parking, good directions. Nothing too hard for a family. If you have an extra day in Greenvile, Falls River Park is a nice option, but if you have a car, check this one out.

We had a great camping experience with our RV. The hiking trails were great and we had so much fun geocaching.

Lots of hiking opportunities for all levels of hikers. Human powered boating is available by the 30 min and is pretty cheap and enjoyable if not too hot. Camping is available but I didn't care for that too much because there aren't sites on the water. Staff at the office are quite helpful and admission to the park is cheap.

You can walk around Lake Placid enjoying the water and sunshine from the shade of the over arching trees. There's a dam with a waterfall coming out one side along part of the trail. You can take trails, ride bikes, kayak, there's boats to ride, a swimming area, and just flesh clean air. I recommend spending the $50 for the... More

A great place to hike close to Greenville. Wish their were more views, but the trails are nice, and have a good variety of difficulty. My dog loved hiking there. If you're there on nice weekends be aware that it's a little crowded, especially with bikers.

What a treasure! And so close to the city! Beautiful windy road up the mountain, and a little beach at the bottom. Great to have so much nature so close to the city.
