Caesars Head, along with Jones Gap State Park and other wildlife preserves in upper Greenville County, create the protected Mountain Bridge Wilderness Area. With more than 50 miles of easy to strenuous hiking trails dotted by trailside camping, visitors to Caesars Head can avail themselves of majestic Blue Ridge Mountain panoramas in the verdant, secluded valleys of the area. Marvel at the beauty of Raven Cliff Falls, the excitement of mountain river fishing in the Middle Saluda, or just enjoy the sights and sounds of abundant wildlife during a picnic outing with family and friends.

Caesars Head is part of the State Park Services' Project Green Program, designed to reduce trash and encourage recycling. Trash cans have been removed to improve the appearance and to ensure a more enjoyable experience for visitors.

Area Attractions
Caesars Head is one of South Carolina's most famous natural landmarks. At 3,266 feet above sea level, Caesars Head provides a panoramic view of the mountain country.

Another significant landmark in the Mountain Bridge Wilderness Area includes Raven Cliff Falls, a 420-foot mountain cascade that awaits day-hikers at the end of a moderately strenuous two-mile trail.

This area of the Blue Ridge Escarpment ends in South Carolina with an abrupt drop of some 2,000 feet to the foothills below, where the state's Piedmont region begins. This escarpment affords spectacular scenic vistas and waterfalls, and provides a protected environment for many rare and endangered plant and animal species.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
October 17 A world class destination by Craig Johnson
After being in fifty one countries I can still say the SC parks along the Blue Ridge Escarpment are as satisfying an experience as any to be found far away. We are fortunate to have these delights so close at hand. Turn off the tube and take a hike!!
October 21 Amazing view by hcb
We stopped by around 10 am on our way home from camping, and the view was AMAZING! It was October 17, 2010. There was still fog rising up between the mountains, and I captured great pictures!
