Broad River Cherokee county Gaffeny S.C. USA

The Broad Scenic River boasts a fantastic stretch of undeveloped riverfront.  The riparian forest is home to diverse plant and animal life including the state-endangered wild ginger. Eagles, ospreys, and other birds frequent the river corridor. In addition to flora and fauna, the area surrounding the river is rich with historical features from Smith’s ford to Native American fish traps.

99 Island Access is located southeast of Gaffney in Cherokee County just below Duke Power Company’s hydropower facility. It is on the east bank of the river. The state-designated Broad Scenic River begins at this point and extends approximately 15 miles downstream to the confluence with the Pacolet River. Access to this boat landing is off of County Road 43.

The next access point is almost twenty miles downstream at Lockhart in Union County. For a shorter trip, boaters should contact river-bordering landowners to arrange for put-in or take-out.


Jones Gap State Park Marietta S.C. USA

As soon as you turn on to Jones Gap Road, your spirit is essentially woed.

Upon arrival there is one of two parking lots to choose from, and the driving is done, it is recommended to visit the office and learning center at the upper parking lot before deciding on either one.

Whether your intent is to Cycle, Hike, Picnic, Photography, Fishing, relax or just to bring the kids out to the learning center or playground to have some fun, You`ll instantly realize your nature adventure has just begun.

From the avid to experienced hikers that challenge these trails, the hikes are not for the squeamish at heart, it is imperative to purchase a trail map and orientate yourself with the colored trail markers before you start.

The dangers of rocky, slippery conditions, snakes, wildlife, fatigue, and sheer cliffs I must impart,
so don`t forget (or keep in mind) : Proper attire, a walking stick, plenty of water (if you have room in the backpack, a set of binoculars and first aid kit and maybe a snack), and to fill out a hiker registration form at the trail head on your journey before you depart.

The water constantly moving among the rocks is like a symphony to the ear,
when in reality, it`s literally nature`s livelihood we hear.

Jones Gap State Park Joins Caesar`s Head State Park to encompass over 13,000 acres with over 60 miles of trails for one to explore, with geographic marvels such as: Rainbow Falls, Jones Gap Falls, Dargan`s Cascade, Raven Cliff Falls, Hospital Rock, Weight Watchers Rock and the Rim of the Gap… you can return here  year after year and find another gem to adore.

For whatever reason or purpose you come to Jones Gap to achieve, you will most likely find it difficult to leave.

J. Verne Smith Park (Lake Robinson) Greer S.C. USA

Lake John Robinson in Greenville County is a 2,250 acre man-made lake on the South Tyger River operated by Greer Commission of Public Works. Public access is provided by a public boat ramp and fishing pier. Put in is a J. Verne Smith park.

Great idea to spend whole day Greenville South Carolina area. Nice view of mountains to North. Lake has a very little boat traffic, a few fishermen, lots of geese, blue heron and ducks. No overnight facilities at park, shelters, picnic tables and outdoor grills. It is very recommended to single or group travelers to park there for the  whole day or as a self lunch break, there is no shops at the park.

My first step was visiting Park Ranger office and it was quiet an experience. I met very warm rangers who explain me about the park and offer me to arrive when it is sunset, they said the park has different view in sunset and showed me some pic… WOW.

Then I went to the deck the view from there was amazing. If you didn`t come for fishing you just can just relax, have meditation, listen to music and when you become hungry, there are grills and you have fresh meal in seconds. For us was enough for the first time some fruits, coffee and Orange juice .

Location: Lake access is Mays Bridge Road of South Carolina Highway 101 a few miles North of Greer.

A corridor To the Heavens – J. Verne Smith Park (Lake Robinson) Greer S.C. USA

As I begin to walk along one of the many pathways ahead,
it is toward one of the many perfectly placed picnic tables I am being led.

With my coffee in hand I notice all of nature`s treasures beginning to unfold,
the rolling waves of water that turns into the rolling waves of mountains,
that turns into the rolling waves of clouds is within itself a magnificent site to behold.

The clarity of the water gives way to the lush greenery along the shore,
as the distant mountains that touch the beautiful skies silently whispers…
“remember me forever more”.

As a wasp inches itself closer with intrigue and some sort of purpose in mind,
as he flies away to a nearby budding flower, guess what else I find?
he flies from the flower and back to my seat to show me that beneath me, he too has a family to feed

If we`ll only look there is purpose and meaning in everyone and everything we meet,
and just like that… he planted within me, a seed.
