1. Sassafras Mountain

For one of the best views in the state, visit Sassafras Mountain located about 16 miles north of Pickens on the border of North Carolina. This is the highest point in the state at 3,553 feet and provides a stunning view. From the summit, it's possible to see four states: North Caroline, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Georgia. Take your camera for some of the most picturesque views in the Palmetto State.
