Join us when we head to Paris Mountain State Park for a 5/10K walk that will cover some of the park’s 1,540-acre that is located at the back door to Greenville, nestled in the forested foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The walk is almost entirely on dirt paths/trails and the terrain is not suitable for wheelchairs or strollers as it is a bit uneven in many places. Restrooms are available along the walk. This trail is not a typical a “walk in the park” on paved streets with manicured lawns, but this gem in Greenville should not be missed for the nature enthusiasts. Paris Mountain is home to a vast array of wildlife, majestic trees, and spectacular vistas. The park is listed on the National Register of historic places. A number of the park buildings were built by the CCC in the 1930s during the great depression and are a great place to picnic after a nice walk in one of South Carolina’s best parks.
After the walk, there will be a BYO picnic lunch and club meeting at the shelter.
