This historic area has outstanding views of the Piedmont part of South Carolina. The nearby wilderness areas give you plenty of opportunity to take a hike. There are plenty of waterfalls to explore here also.

Standing on Caesar's Head for the view; is certainly a great piece of the trip up a winding curved road through the forested hills of NW South Carolina.

The trip to the top of the mountain is 45min-1hr from Greenville, but definitely worth making. We visited on a hazy day but the view was still spectacular.

The overlook is worth the visit. Would also be a great place for a picnic. Several hiking trails are available from here. Nice park -- well worth a visit.

Only stopped to see the view from the overlook on our way to Greenville, SC, it was beautiful. Worth a stop if you are in the area.

Even on the cloudy rainy day that we visited Caesars Head the view of Table Rock was stunning! I would encourage people to go on a sunny day you can see for miles.

After driving up the switchback road to the park office, I was disappointed to find that they only have primitive camping ares. However, handicapped access to the observation point is good.

We went on a rainy day & the views from the overlook were still beautiful. We ate in the picnic area by the park office. We also drove down the road to the Ravens Cliff Falls trail. The drive up the mountain was fun with its windy,hilly curves. We will definitely be making a return trip.

Caesars Head was a nice little trip from Greenville. Not too far, maybe 30 minutes plus a ride through Travelers Rest.
