About This Trail

[Total: 1    Average: 4/5]

This is an easy way to experience part of the more challenging Sulphur Springs Loop, by making an out-and-back to idyllic Mountain Lake.  Along the way there are large boulders to climb, mud puddles to splash in, boardwalks and bridges to traverse, a CCC-built rest shelter, and a historic dam spillway “waterfall” (built in 1890).  Back at the parking area is an access area to a shallow stream that is perfect for wading.

Park in the Sulphur Springs lot, near Shelter 5&6.  The trail begins near the entrance to the parking lot from the main road.

I joined Hike it Baby in 2014 when my son was just 2 months old.  A year later, I became an Ambassador for the Greenville, SC branch.  I love raising my kids on the trail and meeting so many like-minded families!
