Beginning in Oconee State Park on the Chattooga River and ending 50 miles away in Table Rock State Park, the Foothills Trail is an interstate cruise across miles of prime South Carolina hill country, making a few forays into North Carolina. From dense forests of hardwoods to rocky cliffs, waterfalls, and streams, the trail takes in varied fauna and rare flora, such as the Turnbridge fern, and crosses a heart-stopping 200-foot suspension bridge. If a week in the wild isnt in the cards, try the first 16 miles of the trail, to Burrells Ford campground.
The hiking trailhead at Table Rock State Park is located off SR11 northeast of Sunset.
Overall, Foothills Trail - North is the 14th most popular hiking trail of all 16 hikes in South Carolina. Several of the better hiking trails are nearby Foothills Trail - North including Foothills Trail - South, Buncombe Trail, Chattooga Trail, Rocky Gap Trail, Cedar Springs Trail, Parsons Mountain OHV Trail and Long Cane Horse Trail.
