I'm not sure if we explored the entire park, but there is a great little trail around a pond at this park. It's quiet but not far from Greenville. Good for picnics, walks, or just enjoying nature.

Who knew that such a peaceful and pristine place existed so close to Greenville, SC? We camped for 3 nights in the campground and will definitely go back. Beautiful lake with kayak and paddle boat rentals and lots of hiking and mountain biking. Amazing place!

Your should contact the park office and ask a ranger for recommendations as far as I know there are only hiking and mountain bike trains available.
