From simple park trails to ambitious steep climbs, from rivers edge to lakeside, on foot or by horseback, the trails of this region offers something for everyone. The high adventurer and those with more modest physical ability can find a trail that suits them, one that leads to better fitness or another that leads to a beautiful waterfall.
A great source of information regarding trails is the website maintained by the South Carolina State Trails Program, www.sctrails.net. Trails on this site are well-described, and include good directions, lengths and times of hikes, and difficulty levels. All of the hikes are worthwhile.
For hikes to some of the nearly 150 waterfalls in Oconee County, please see the waterfall section of this website.
