Table Rock Mountain, long a favorite scenic spot of South Carolinians, takes its name from its distinctive shape. A Cherokee legend tells the story that a giant who once lived in the nearby valley had his servants place his food on the great flat top, near a cool spring that bubbles to the surface there; the smaller, more rounded mountain nearby served as the giant's stool. A South Carolina state park now makes this natural wonder accessible to state residents.
