  • Great state park at the base of the Blue Wall where the Piedmont of South Carolina rises abruptly to the Southern Appalachian Mountains. The climb to Rainbow Falls is beautiful in the Autumn and Winter. But also lovely all year. It is short, but really steep.

Such a great place and the drive is always a pleasure!
