I live near Coopers Rock and I come here for the mountain bike trails. There are several to choose from and offer something for every skill level. The overlook is also a really pretty spot to stop and enjoy.

I have traveled to Coopers Rock to geocache and walk the trails. There are rocks that relate the building of the mountains.

What a nice place for beautiful views. If you are an outdoorsman, this is a place to go. Camping, hiking and lots more to do here. Only downside is parking when the place is closed.

Hmm, good question. Maybe just because it looked really cool. I'm interested to know the answer as well
Is the sculpted giant still there to see?

Not too sure. Didn't see that. We saw the overlook and under view of the scenic point. Then we hiked a while. It was beautiful!
