Stopping at the visitor center to pick up trail maps is a good idea, as there are more than 12 miles of trails within this park. About 7 miles southeast of the Mountain Bridge Wilderness, Table Rock State Park is known for gorgeous views and higher elevations for birding. The best birding time in this area is from April through October. Visit the lake near the visitor center for unique winter waterfowl such as possible Ring-necked or Ruddy Duck sightings. Table Rock Mountain Trail is the highlight of the state park. This trail extends just over 3.5 miles and is rather steep in various places, but worth the 2,00 elevation change when you reach the top.
