Sapphire Valley and the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau are perched along the dramatic precipice of the formidable Blue Ridge Escarpment. This expansive mountain range boasts the loftiest peaks in the eastern part of North America. The Blue Ridge Escarpment marks the distinct boundary where the mountains dramatically cascade down towards the gentle hills and piedmont region of South Carolina. These awe-inspiring transformations can be easily observed while traversing along Highway 11 in South Carolina.
