South Carolina’s Paris Mountain State Park
Hike Through Paris Mountain State Park
Explore over 1,500 acres of the Paris Mountain State Park this vacation season in Greenville, South Carolina. The park encompasses many lakes ideal for swimming and fishing, as well as trails for hiking and biking. You’re all set on Paris Mountain.
Get out of the park’s Lake Placid, a 15-acre body of water chock full of bream, bass and crappie for the taking. From Memorial Day throughout August, you and your family can rent a canoe, kayak or pedal boat for a fun day in the South Carolina sun.
Pick up a boat on Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and get that camera ready for some unforgettable memories.
Take a dip, then dry off for a two-wheeled cruise down the Old Firetower Bicycle Trail. On Saturdays, trails are for hikers only, so gear up for a walk down the three-mile Sulphur Springs Loop Trail, or the two-mile Brissy Ridge Trail – your chance to spot some wildlife in the Paris Mountain State Park.
For more of the park’s wilderness, check out the one-mile Lake Placid Self-Interpretive Nature Trail following the shores of Lake Placid. Relax, and take in the beauty of outdoor South Carolina.
