The View is Getting Better

The View is Getting Better

Sassafras Mountain is the highest point in South Carolina. From there you can see three states and view lakes Jocassee, Keowee and Hartwell. A new observation platform has been built with 360-degree views. There’s no higher place in SC to view fall foliage!

Natural Resources officials have instaledl a 15-foot platform to compliment the work that has already been done. In the past few years the road and parking area leading to the 3,553-foot peak were improved.

To visit, drive 16 miles north from Pickens on U.S. 178 and 4.7 miles east on the F. Van Clayton Memorial Highway to a parking area. The summit is a 300-foot walk (and about 150 feet in elevation) from the parking area and is handicapped-accessible.
