Nestled along the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, the South Carolina Mountain Lakes region is the only place in the state with mountain tops, scenic overlooks, and gorgeous waterfalls. Loosely tied together along the Cherokee Foothills National Scenic Byway (SC Highway 11) the region boasts eight state parks, a couple of lakes, and miles of scenic drives. After seeing these photos I dare you to not want to book a trip to these mountains.
