Head to Long Shoals Wayside Park in Sunset, SC to try a 0.8-mile out-and-back trail generally considered an easy route. It takes around 19 min to complete. This trail is great for children to hike. Pack a lunch and take your fishing gear to catch some fish while your there!



Hang out with some goats at Red Clay Soap. The farm is open for farm visits to be scheduled.
