Palmetto Trail to Tamassee Knob

On Sunday 11/7/2021 I met a group of the Girls Who Hike, SC at the trail head at Oconee Station State Historic Site. We spent the next few hours totally immersed in the stunning fall foliage of upstate, SC. The trail angles slowly upward to the knob that offers a beautiful view of several mountain tops. We took a side path to admire stunning Oconee Station Falls before continuing on. The trail is well marked and appears to be well traveled until reaching the junction to the knob. This last portion is a little overgrown. We took a break at the knob for some snacks before making our way back down. A baby copperhead was waiting for us, but luckily it was spotted and moved to the side of the trail. It hid so well amid the leaves. The hike is moderate, just under 9 miles out and back with an elevation gain of 1,571ft. The afternoon hike took us about 5 hours to complete with several short stops.
