Hanging Rock State Park

Hanging Rock State Park is located in the Sauratown Mountains, named for the Saura, a Native American tribe. Although the Blue Ridge Mountains are within sight of the Sauratown Mountains, they are two distinct and separate mountain ranges. Thus, the Sauratown Mountains are often called the "Mountains Away from the Mountains."

Once part of a mighty range of peaks, the Sauratowns were sculpted by millions of years of erosion. The softer materials were gradually washed away revealing the quartzite ridges and knobs you can see today.

Prominent peaks, such as Hanging Rock, Cook Wall and Moore Wall, rise from 1,700 feet to over 2,500 feet above the surrounding Piedmont. Numerous creeks flow over the outcrops, creating waterfalls such as Hidden Falls, Window Falls, and Upper and Lower Cascade Falls.
