We’re going to spend Thanksgiving in the mountains!
On the way we passed Keowee-Toxaway State Park, SC ($0) and decided to take a short walk on the Natural Bridge Trail (1.4 total miles out and back, 219’ elevation). It was a pretty trail through tunnels of Mountain Laurel to a nice little waterfall but the “natural bridge” is some large rocks you can use to walk across the stream, not a rock arch as we were expecting from the name. It’s also listed on their map as a loop but is actually an out and back.
Keowee-Toxaway also has a very pretty lake that we stopped to admire for a bit. The fall colors set it off beautifully.
we walked over to Buck’s Coffee Cafe for a Maple Spice Latte and went for a walk around town. Cashiers has a nice park, a number of high end retail and rustic design establishments and a pretty little pond.
