State Park is located in northern Greenville County
, SC, only three miles (5 km) from the North Carolina border on US 276. Caesars Head is a granitic gneiss outcrop at 3,208 ft (978 m) above sea level on the Blue Ridge Escarpment of the Blue Ridge Mountains that looks down about 2,000 ft (610 m) to the Piedmont below. Caesars Head State Park and Jones Gap State Park
form the Mountain Bridge Wilderness Area.
The park is popular for hiking, trailside camping and picnicing. Fishing in the park for brook, spotted and rainbow trout takes place in the Middle Saluda River
and the Julian and Matthews creeks. Each Autumn, the park is a temporary home to thousands of hawks migrating south for the winter. One popular hiking trail in the park leads to the 420 ft (128 m) high Raven Cliff
Falls, where a suspension bridge overlooks the falls.
