A very difficult but immensely rewarding day hike featuring spectacular views from the top of the dramatic cliffs of Table Rock Mountain, as wall as a visit to the summit of Pinnacle Mountain. Table Rock is one of South Carolina’s most popular state parks.
The imposing granite dome of Table Rock, the pristine mountain lake, the excellent network of trails—all draw visitors from far and near. The mountain got its name from Cherokee legend. The Cherokees believed that the Great Spirit used Table Rock as a dining table and the shorter mountain, The Stool, as a seat. The trail system at Table Rock State Park has been designated a National Historic Trail.
