Outdoor adventures in the Upcountry

Towering above the Blue Ridge Escarpment, Caesars Head Mountain is a picturesque slice of the South Carolina Upcountry. The mountain dominates Caesars Head State Park and is a hub for climbing, hiking and mountaineering. There are forested trails to explore, tumbling waterfalls to discover and soaring birds of prey to spot, so don't forget to bring a sense of adventure. From family getaways to group rock climbing weekends, Caesars Head Mountain vacation rentals are an ideal base for exploring the Upcountry.

Hike to cascading Raven Cliff Falls

Caesars Head is crisscrossed with well-marked hiking trails so why not stretch your legs? At 4 miles, Raven Cliff Falls is one of the most popular routes, leading to a suspension bridge that offers dizzying views of the water as it plunges into a mountain ravine. Jones Gap Trail is another favorite, dotted with scenic swimming holes. There are plenty of fishing spots along the Middle Saluda River, as well as Matthews and Julian creeks. You could reel in brook, rainbow and brown trout. Don't forget to pick up a valid South Carolina fishing license before you drop a line.

Discover the Mountain Bridge Wilderness Area

Every trip should start with the Caesars Head State Park Visitor Center. Located at the park HQ, it features a small museum and a 3D map of the Mountain Bridge Wilderness Area. You'll also find a great gift store. For the best views of the park, head to the Caesars Head Overlook. It's perched over 300 feet above the sweeping vistas of the Blue Ridge Escarpment. While most visitors stay in nearby towns such as Asheville and Spartanburg, secluded Caesars Head Mountain vacation rentals put you in the heart of the park.

Catch the Caesars Head hawk migration

Caesars Head Mountain is at its busiest in the summer, when South Carolina enjoys warm weather and plenty of sunshine. It's a favorite with families so, if you want to beat the crowds, visit either side of Labor Day or Memorial Day. Every fall, Caesars Head State Park is a seasonal home for thousands of migrating hawks riding the thermal winds of the Appalachian Flyway. Hawk watching season extends from September to November. If you want to know more, don't miss the daily Hawk Watch program run by park rangers.
