What to do in Caesars Head State Park

Caesars Head is an excellent park for nature enthusiasts and photographers. This park joins Jones Gap State Park and other natural areas to comprise the Mountain Bridge Wilderness and Recreation Area. At 3,266 feet above sea level, Caesars Head provides a panoramic view of nearby valleys, Table Rock and Pinnacle mountains, and other distant peaks of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Raven Cliff Falls, situated along one of the park's many hiking trails, is one of the highest waterfalls in the eastern United States. Wildflowers bloom in profusion throughout the park, offering the visitor an ever-changing palette of colors in all seasons.

There are 50 miles of easy to strenuous hiking trails in the Mountain Bridge Wilderness and Recreation Area. Trailside camping is allowed at 23 designated trail sites. Other points of interest include a scenic overlook, and Ravin Cliff Falls. Enjoy fishing in the Middle Saluda, Matthews and Julian creeks for brook, spotted and rainbow trout.

The primary activities at Caesars Head are hiking, picnicking, fishing, viewing scenery and primitive camping. The campsites are available along the trails, not in a developed campground.

Caesars Head State Park is located on US 276, 37 miles northwest of Greenville near the South Carolina-North Carolina border and 5 miles from SC Highway 11.

South Carolina generally has a temperate climate, with cool winters and warm, humid summers. Snow and freezing temperatures are possible in the winter at the higher elevations. Thunderstorms are possible throughout the year but most common in the spring and summer. Tropical storms occasionally strike the coast during the hurricane season.
