Serene Lake Jocassee is best viewed from Jumping Off Rock, located in northern Pickens County. No one knows for sure where the name Jumping Off Rock came from, but its untouched, natural beauty is surely breathtaking.

However, Jumping Off Rock is not an easy place to get to. The steep road that goes there is full of twists and bumps, but the view is worth the effort.
