Unique Features

  • Significant Features: Caesars Head is one of South Carolina’s most famous natural landmarks. At 3,208 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, an overlook of this 420-foot mountain cascade 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.

  • Wildlife: Wildlife that can be found on the park include black bear, Peregrine Falcon and the federally-endangered Green Salamander.

  • Wildflowers: Unique wildflowers that can be found on the park include the mountain sweet pitcher plant.

  • Waterfalls: Caesars Head has the following waterfalls: Raven Cliff Falls, Cliff Falls, Firewater Falls, Drip Rock Falls, Rockcliff Falls, and Silver Steps falls. Wildcat Wayside, located on Hwy. 11 between Caesars Head and Jones Gap includes the Lower Wildcat Falls and Upper Wildcat Falls.
