Pickens Where the Mountains Begin

Why Pickens?

Tucked in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Pickens offers visitors a wide array of interesting, fun and exciting activities, from shopping and eating, to biking, to enjoying the natural resources, community events, and cultural activities that abound.  Here you will find people who value family, friends and a relaxed lifestyle. In Pickens, you become part of the community.

The town of Pickens was founded in 1868 and named for the Revolutionary War hero General Andrew Pickens. Much of the City’s past is present today, giving a glimpse of its rich and fascinating heritage. This mixture of past and present is one of the factors which makes Pickens a place of historical interest and significance.

While you are in town, take a moment and visit the downtown amphitheater located at 114 West Main Street.  In addition, our brand new Town Creek Bike Park just opened off Sangamo Road – an off-road BMX-style bike park that is one of a kind!  Finally, take a walk or bike ride on the Doodle Trail, a multi-use paved trail that connects our downtown to the City of Easley’s downtown.
