About 30 million years ago, this area was a seacoast, as evidenced by the sand and coastal rock formations. Of these, the most unusual is Peachtree rock, which has eroded to the point where it now stands precariously balanced atop a narrow band of stone. Take US #302 out of Columbia, SC. Go past the airport, past South Congaree, and past the Edmund community. Turn left on SC #6 where it veers off from SC #302, then turn left onto the second paved road. At the stop sign, turn right onto a Peachtree Rock Road, and the small parking lot is on the left.
