This was an excellent, moderate trail loop that is about 1.5 miles long. Heads down to Poe Creek with some nice water features, the natural bridge, small waterfalls and then heads back up. Highly recommend!

Camping is also available for tents, RVs and there's one cabin available also. Lake Keowee is so beautiful and the park offers scenic views. You'll get a nice workout but it's not exhausting hiking over the 5.5 miles of trails.

We went for camping in this park. Really nice and beautiful park. Well mantained and easy to find the areas. Ranger was willing to help us. We had a great time. We enjoyed the park.

Hiked the Natural Bridge Trail. It is a 1.3 mile loop trail leading to... surprise... a natural bridge formation. The hike has several strenuous areas so be prepared. There is a small visitors center with displays and gifts. A nice visit.

Had an absolute blast with my friends. The hike was pretty strenuous, but I think that was mostly due to us not being backpackers on the regular and never having hiked in mountainous territory. 2 1/2 miles of up and down. I recommend drinking water...More

It has been a few years since I was over there. The trail crosses water and even goes down to Lake Keowee at one end, so probably your best bet is a decent purification device and some water bottles. Rather than trying... More
