Paris Mountain State Park

Pets are allowed in most outdoor areas provided they are kept under physical restraint or on a leash not longer than six feet. Owners will be asked to remove noisy or dangerous pets or pets that threaten or harass wildlife. Pets are not allowed in or around lodging facilities.

One of the oldest protected areas in the state is gaining popularity as a beautiful retreat in a metropolitan area.

Formerly a watershed for the city of Greenville, the 1,275-acre Paris Mountain features large stands of old growth hardwood forests that canopy over hiking and biking trails, a family campground, picnic areas and Camp Buckhorn, a group-camp complex. Visit Website

    Great Park

    Great place to walk your pup.
    Due to COVID many things are closed such as restrooms and the boating lake.

    Great Place To Go For A Hike

    We have enjoyed the trails here for years, and have even camped here on several occasions. The park has become more and more crowded over time, and with more disrespectful dog owners allowing their dogs to run off-leash. The rangers ask that this is reported when it’s seen, but it’s hard for them to enforce.

    Recommendation: if crowded trails and inconsiderate dog owners bother you and your pup, go just when the park opens or at the very end of the day. You’re much less likely to have any issues at off-peak times. Also, there’s generally a good number of mountain bikers on the trails, but if you’re out to avoid them, go on a day when bikes aren’t allowed or go super early in the day.

    Love it!

    We have 2 dogs that love the water and they had a blast swimming in the lake. We were so happy to find out that they were allowed off leash to enjoy the water. They just couldn't be off leash and in the water in the designated swimming area or the boat dock.

    Awesome trails!

    We spent almost two hours walking the trails with my pup, then lounged on the benches by the lake to relax. It's a beautiful park!
