Discover the Blue Ridge Region : South Carolina Upcountry. Looming majestically beyond the low soft hills of the Piedmont, the Blue Ridge escarpment thrills the soul of the mountain lover. The Cherokees called these heights “the Great Blue Hills of God.” The stream-laced foothills and rugged mountains of the Blue Ridge Region of South Carolina have helped shape the development of the state’s most economically and geographically diverse region. Today the Blue Ridge provides a naturally beautiful backdrop for South Carolina Upcountry attractions. These lofty mountains have long drawn vacationers to enjoy hiking trails, rafting the whitewater of the Chattooga, and exploring history on Revolutionary War battlefields.

One of the ways to experience the area is by hitting the two-lane blacktop. The Cherokee Foothills National Scenic Byway (SC11) offers travelers a beautiful and relaxing drive through some of South Carolina’s most historic sights.
