PICKENS, S.C. (WSPA) – It has been nearly two months since firefighters fully extinguished the Pinnacle Mountain wildfire. Today some parts of Table Rock State Park remain closed from wildfire damage, but others are open for hikers to enjoy again.
The Table Rock Trail, Pinnacle Mountain Trail and the Foothills Trail are now open at Table Rock. The trail to the Carrick Creek Falls Overlook and the CCC Lakeside Trail are also open.
The Carrick Creek Trail, Ridge Trail, Mill Creek Pass, Mill Creek Falls Spur Trail and the Palmetto Trail are still closed due to damage from the recent wildfires. When hiking at Table Rock, please stay on the marked trails. Unsafe conditions still exist in areas away from the trails, due to recent wildfires.
“I was expecting from the wildfire, some trees down and burnt areas but they’ve kept it well-kept up and the trees are cut so the trail was easy to see,” Nicholas Gustafson said.
