One of the oldest protected areas in the state is gaining popularity as a beautiful retreat in a metropolitan area.

Formerly a watershed for the city of Greenville, the 1,275-acre Paris Mountain features large stands of old growth hardwood forests that canopy over hiking and biking trails, a family campground, picnic areas and Camp Buckhorn, a group-camp complex.

The hardwoods are even more spectacular in the fall, when they produce the golds, reds and oranges of autumn.

Developed in 1935 by the Civilian Conservation Corps, the park continues to display CCC craftsmanship in several buildings and structures.
