First Day Hikes

Kick-off the new year with a First Day Hike!

Many state parks are offering hikes. Visit the South Carolina State Park’s Programs and Events webpage and filter for 01/01/2024 to 01/01/2024 to find one that interest you.

One of our favorites takes place at the Battle of Musgrove Mill State Historic Site because it is two hikes on two different trails!

Hike 1 – Accessible Horseshoe Falls Hike – Wheelchairs, walkers and strollers are encouraged on this 1/4 mile ranger guided hike exclusively along our paved ADA accessible trail to the overlook of Horseshoe Falls where participants will learn about the legend of Horseshoe Falls. 11 AM to 11:45 AM. Meet at the Horseshoe Falls Parking Lot. No pets for this guided hike please.

Hike 2 – British Camp Trail Hike – This ranger guided hike of the easy 1-mile British Camp trail will focus on the winter woods and nature, and will also highlight the Kids in Parks interactive brochures and activities.

There is no charge for any of the hikes, but we ask that you register for the hike or hikes that interests you the most by 4 pm December 31 by emailing the park at [email protected] or calling at 864-938-0100.

No pets allowed on any of the hikes. Please bring bottled water, and wear appropriate shoes and clothing for hiking and the weather.
