National Register of South Carolina Website reports "As part of a series of strongholds planned to maintain the British position in South Carolina, an outpost was established at Hanging Rock in 1780. The importance of this post was in its strategic location on the road from Camden to Charlotte. The first American attack on the post occurred on July 30, 1780, led by Major William Richardson Davie, with forty dragoons and forty mounted riflemen." The Carolina Thread Trail segment that leads to a large rock formation and a plaque honoring the soldiers lost and wounded during the Battle of Hanging Rock in 1780. The property is heavily shaded and remote but full of historic significance.
The parking is limited to a couple of spaces in front of the trail.
