We visit this park at least once a month. It is very close to town and cheap to enter. We go here to hike because there are so many trails - most are easy so our young son is able to walk them too. We have gone camping a few times - many choices - you can be close to... More

Paris Mountain is a great place to go if you do not want to spend an entire day to do a hike. Many times we have traveled an hour or more to get to some really nice trails with great views. Paris Mountain is the next best thing when you want to get some fresh air and exercise but don't... More

I love going mid Spring because you get to see the Musk and Slider turtles, the flowers all abloom and the fresh air is just invigourating and rejuvinating. My children love the slides and playground and the swimming area is nice. It's a great place for a family gathering or just a picnic. I'd love to go camping here one... More

There is a wonderful light display for Christmas every year. You drive through and then you are able to stop and visit Santa's Village. Lots of fun for the kids.

This state park is a mere 15 minute drive from the downtown area. It's scenic views and hiking trails are a pleasant distraction from the weekly grind. You feel like you have left the city, yet you are close enough to go for lunch after a morning hike.

Nice easy trail around the lake-there are many other trails as well. Fantastic falls at end of lake over a dam and spillway. The autumn colors were spectacular and created a wonderful reflection on the lake. The visitor's center/gift shop is a must see just for the construction of the building. A cute addition is the bird house constructed in... More

Whenever I visit family in Greenville area, I look forward to trail runs at Paris Mountain State Park! It is my favorite place to trail run although there are lots of roots, etc to trip you up and last week with the fallen leaves I did take a bad fall. So be extra careful in the fall when leaves are... More

I try to pick up my 6 1/2 year old grand daughter once a week and am running out of things to do to surprise her. Boy- I got this one right! Of course she was bored at the thought of another park but we got there at fall leave's peak. The minute we parked she was so in awe... More
