Hike to Oconee Station Falls

This is an easy hike to Oconee Station Falls (also called Station Cove Falls) near Walhalla, SC. It follows an old logging road and is probably a 20 minute walk to the falls. We took longer because we were walking Wessy, taking photos, and enjoying the spring flowers. This is a fun, heavily traveled 1.4 [...]

Beautiful Lake Jocassee!

Beautiful Lake Jocassee will be a destination this summer with kayaks! Pat and Chip enjoyed the view while Wessy looked for—you got it—sticks! I think we paddled one area of this lake a few years back but definitely want to go again. The Devil's Fork State Park is large and wonderful but there is a [...]

Check Opossum Falls Off the List!

Opossum Falls (also called Possum Falls) in South Carolina is a place I have wanted to visit  for a while. I can check it off my "to visit" list. The falls are located in Oconee County, and the well-kept trail (only a few downed trees) offers a great hike. I'm glad I did it before [...]

Enjoying Twin Falls in South Carolina.

I knew the author of the guide book Waterfall Hikes of Upstate South Carolina said this was an easy trail but my hope was for a little longer and steeper than what we experienced. The stream that runs beside the trail is beautiful and reminds me more of being close to the Chattooga River than [...]

King Creek Waterfalls South Carolina

Click on the photo to enlarge. This is one sweet little hike that has something for everyone. There's plenty of rhododendron tunnels, pine needle padded paths, some rock scrambles, ups and downs, and a big payoff at the end with one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the area: King Creek Waterfall. We [...]

Hidden Falls, South Carolina

Hidden Falls is hidden no more. For a couple of years, I have been trying to "find" these falls but "things connected with life" kept me from hiking to this beautiful water fall that truly is hidden. The 2.4 mile trail was easy and well maintain. No problem and a nice hike for families. It [...]

Staying in Place along the Tugaloo River

Spring greens were everywhere a couple of weeks ago along the Tugaloo River. In our attempt to get outside but also social distance, we stayed close to home. This is a little hidden hike of about three miles round trip. We made it longer by crossing a river and then walking out through a wetland [...]
