Inside the Gorges State Park. I was told no permits needed. Easy trails. Can get muddy with lots of rain but they have a lot of swales made on the main trail (Chestnut Mtn. Rd.). Eventually you will get to a steel bridge which is a great scenic photo op. Some nice campsites nearby as well. There is no camping within the state park, but eventually you simply get into state game lands (where said camping spots are). As of 5/2018 I could not get much further than the bridge as they were doing trail repairs. There are other offshoots more towards the beginning of the trail that take you down nearly to the northern banks of Lake Jocassee. From what I gather this whole system is one-way-in, one-way-out which is the point plotted on the map within the State Park.
