Nature & Wildlife
Glassy is a wooded mountaintop community covering 3,500 acres with an abundance of wildlife living in perfect harmony with our residents. A great portion of our community borders on a lush, protected nature preserve which includes the Greenville Watershed Preserve. A pleasant mix of oak, maples, and other hardwood trees, complement the dogwoods and wild rhododendrons seen everywhere on the mountain. Every season has its own colorful mountain beauty, but our fall colors are the most spectacular. Black bears, deer, bobcats, wild turkeys, and many species of birds are seen throughout the year. We’re proud that the Cliffs at Glassy was recently recognized by the SC Audubon Society for our efforts to provide a sustainable future through bird-friendly and climate-resilient practices.
The Cliffs at Glassy’s top elevation is 3200 feet with a moderate, four season climate. This ensures year-round enjoyment of outside activities, including golf. The average summer high temperature is 84 degrees and the average winter high temperature is 51 degrees. Typically there are two light snowfalls per season but with our moderate elevation and mild temperatures, snow will last only a few days. All roads are cleared immediately by a private contractor.
