Backpacker Magazine – September 2012

From the Field: East

Our trail scouts' top local hikes

Table Rock Trail, Table Rock SP, SC
Scott Stegenga, Pickens, SC

Scan a raptor flyway on this 6.8-mile out-and-back to a 3,124-foot Appalachian foothills summit. The route climbs 2,000 feet through a shady oak-hickory forest, but it saves the best for last, Stegenga says: Just beyond the summit, the trail ends at a granite gneiss shelf with a 180-degree vista into North Carolina. Watch here at midday for swirling kettles of migrating broad-winged hawks (peaking the third week of September) and a pair of resident peregrine falcons on the cliffs to the north. Trip ID 940927

“Rest at the CCC lean-to at mile 1.8; from there, most of the work is behind you, and most of the views are ahead.
