Lunchspot 5. Winstead Hill Monument

Up on a little tree-crowned hill off of 31 is a monument in memoriam a bunch of confederate soldiers who fought and died bravely here one day at 4 p.m. in the afternoon. Thanks to them, and some thoughtful members of the SCV (Sons of Confederate Veterans) visitors can enjoy learning a little while they lunch, bask in the shady setting and take in the wide view (at the top of the path). There are sanctioned seating facilities (i.e. picnic benches) by the gravel parking, but the hilltop gets you the view and a quieter lunch, farther from the sometimes noisy Columbia pike. After lunch, take a stroll around the surprisingly serene walking paths. If you're lucky, you may spot an increasingly rarer bluebird, thanks to a local eagle scout's final project of installing "bluebird boxes".

This lunchspot features Trees, View, Seating, and Noise.
