COVID-19 STATUS - Open (last updated 8/19/20)

Located entirely on the property of South Mountain Christian Camp, these trails are open to the public year-round during daylight hours. A small trail fee helps with trail maintenance, but there is no charge for ROC members. The three-mile loop trail can be accessed from multiple locations and is mostly wooded with rolling hills and a brief stretch along the camp lake. It is the same course used for the annual South of the Mountains 5K Trail Run. The mountain trail is just 3/10 of a mile but is strenuous. It includes an observation deck with a panoramic view of Rutherford County and the Blue Ridge Mountains. All camp guests are required to sign in upon arrival.


WHERE: South Mountain Road, Bostic, NC

Always Bring a Compass

Hopefully you won’t ever need to use it, but what happens if the batteries in your GPS are dead?
