“This is prime wilderness”
This is prime wilderness, both in the 19,200-acre Pickett State Forest and in the adjacent 120,000 acre Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area. Stearns Coal and Lumber Company donated the land for the park in 1933, and the site opened as Pickett Forest Park in 1936. Two Civilian Conservation Corps Camps constructed trails, cabins, a lodge, ranger station, and a 12-acre lake. The CCC structures are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Visitors enjoy staying in the park’s cabins or camping onsite for quick access to fishing in the stocked Arch Lake or hiking on the more than 58 miles of trails that meander through the park and forest with spectacular views of arches, natural bridges and waterfalls. The Hidden Passage Trail is especially beloved by hikers, with waterfalls, large rock houses and a beautiful overlook along the way. The swimming beach, lined with sandstone bluffs, is one of the most picturesque in the South.
Highly recommend for families!!
Great hiking and beautiful waterfalls. Good for group retreats as well.
