Great state park 10 minutes from downtown Greenville. Great hiking, mountain biking, swimming, camping. Lots of shelters to rent as well as Camp Buckhorn. Tools to fix mountain bikes available at the trail head.

We use Paris Mountain as a convenient mountain spot when the Charleston summer heat hits. Our kids love it, there is a lot to do especially if you mountain bike or enjoy hiking. The thing about this place is you are so close to downtown Greenville that you can leave and come back any time. One afternoon a sudden thunderstorm... More

This park may not be a "destination park" but I was surprised to find negative reviews on the park. The park is old and the buildings are old but I think this gives the park character. The staff was friendly. It was conveniently located close to Greenville , a great place to dine and shop.I found the bathrooms and showers... More

Just a short drive from downtown Greenville, this hiking trail has it all. Beautiful streams, a lake, peaks and valleys, it offers a great way to get exercise with lots of beauty!

There is a gorgeous walk around the lake within Paris Mountain State Park. The park is dog-friendly. We love walking in the fall and spring when the weather is cool here in South Carolina. Paris Mountain State Park feels so far removed from the city, but it is just a few miles away from downtown Greenville. The park was built... More

It is a long and winding road up to the park and back from it. But, well worth the drive. The lookout at the top is wonderful. There are also hiking trails. The people in the visitor's center / gift sho[p are very nice and helpful and the shop has a large selection of items.

Easily accessible, this large park is both rustic and refined with walking trails, streams and lakes. Be sure to get a map of the park to make your choice of trails to hike or picnic areas to enjoy. On weekends bicyclists will be prevalent so use care on the roads.
