York County's Nanny's Mountain is a historical park. Nanny's Mountain dates back to the American Revolutionary War. This is where South Carolina got the iron to manufacture its Revolutionary War weaponry. In fact, from the parking area on Liberty Hill Road West at SC 49, hikers will pass the mines in the first quarter-mile of the hike.
Nanny's Mountain Historical Park provides a 1.8 mile trail up to a small mountain formation that is known as a monadnock, a single rock outcropping surrounded by gently sloping or even flat land. This trail is good for all skill levels. The trail splits with one trail taking hikers to the education center at the top of Nanny's Mountain, and the other to a picnic area and scenic overlook displaying Lake Wylie, Kings Mountain, and Charlotte, NC.
