My very first official hike with the Upstate Hiking group for 6.5 miles of a strenuous but very enjoyable hike. Hospital Rock is a huge rock that got it’s name during the civil war because they would drag the wounded soldiers there for recovery. It has a large outcropping that makes for a nice cove to sit under.
The Falls Creek Falls portion of the trail has a beautiful double deck waterfall. This was an amazing hike. There were 8 of us and we completed it with stops for lunch, breaks and pictures in 5 hours and 30 minutes.

Wonderful campground to stay at... I was able to stay in my parents newly furnished and decorated camper with all the conveniences of home. The camp has a in and out wooded trail of moderate difficulty of about 3 miles which I hiked 2 different days and also the Poinsettia trail portion of the Palmetto trail begins right outside the campsite. Since I was along I went 2.5 miles down the Palmetto trail and made it an in and out of 5 miles. It was relatively a flat hike for me no serious climbing and only wooded land for scenery.
