Pickens, South Carolina

Hike Glassy Mountain

1.3 Miles Total - 200 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Monica Gale

Watch the sunset year-round with a very easy hike.

This view never gets old and it is super easy to access. It's also only like half a mile down and then half a mile back up, so if you do watch the sunset, the walk back is easy. The trail is out by Glassy Mountain Church in Pickens, SC and it's accessible year round. The hike is very simple, and you'll hear cows mooing and coon dogs barking out in the country once you're at the view. It's very relaxing.
