  • I fancied a walk in the woods while visiting Greenville, and a local recommended Paris Mountain. It was a quick drive from town, with well-maintained and well-marked trails winding through the woods. ...  more »
  • This is a great place to get away. Offers several nice trails ranging in length from 1-5 miles. It is also a great place for picnicking, road and mountain biking.  more »
  • SC has 47 state parks in the state. I have found positives at all of them that I have visited. But, Paris Mountain is a gem. So many things to do with any age group .... walking, hiking, camping, fish...  more »

  • Excellent state park in the upstate of South Carolina! Fishing can be a little challenging. Personally, I have had more success in the North Lake, but this can be quite a haul for little folks (It's a 45 minute hike to the lake at a brisk pace). Trail running is great on several trails, but you will want to make sure you don't get on one of the strenuous trails. Mountain biking, swimming, and picnic shelters are some of the amenities that the park has to offer. In the peak summer months, the park can get quite crowded, especially on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
  • It's a beautiful state park right in your backyard, if living in Greenville. The $5 per adult was a little steep and the paddle boats definitely need to be serviced (think of the shopping cart that you always get at Walmart), but other than that, its a lovely place to relax and unwind.
  • Too crowded, too many mountainbikers for me. My wife and I tried the Sulphur Springs trail last sunday and it was waaay too crowded for us. You are literally never alone on this trail, either you have some people in front of you, or some right behind you. There are also a lot of mountain bikers on the trail so you have to jump to the sides quite frequently. There is just a part of the trail that is "hikers only". If you want to get away from the city and the people on a weekend, this park is not a good choice. If you go during the week it is probably better, the park itself is very nice.
  • Back to Nature... Love hiking, camping and slowing down from hectic/busy life... Family Friendly and staffed by folks who care...
  • Excellent place to take your mountain bike. It's an exhausting climb up to the firetower, but well worth the ride back down. The lakeside trails have excellent views.
