If you are planning a trip to the Pickens area here are some great things to see and businesses to drop by. This area is filled with things to do outdoors. We sit right at what the indians called "The Blue Wall" which is a drastic elevation change from the foothills to the mountains. Pickens is also located just east of Lake Keowee and south east of Lake Jocassee. These two lakes provide outdoor enthusiasts a great big water playground. Table Rock State Park and the Foothills Trail located just north of Pickens provide beautiful camping and trails to hike. I have not even mentioned the dozens of waterfalls in the upstate to enjoy. Below are some links to some interesting places and businesses in our area.
