Peachtree Rock Trail

Hike to two interesting rock formations via two short loop trails

Peachtree Rock, located 0.1 mile from the parking lot, stands about 20 feet high and looks a bit like a balancing top. Near Peachtree Rock you'll find the only natural waterfall in central South Carolina.

Starting on the blue-blazed trail from said waterfall will lead hikers to an old logging road, which climbs to the top of a ridgeline and holds some beautiful views of the surround area, including Tall Rock (a.k.a. Little Peachtree Rock). The trail then turns toward Hunt Creek, which turns out to be a great place to cool off as the hike from Tall Rock to Hunt Rock is reminiscent of a desert with all of its sand and desert plants. The loop then turns back to Peachtree Rock and a reddish-brown-blazed trail, which leads to other nifty rock formations on its way back to the trailhead.
