This is a great county park with 4 miles of trails. You park right next to a waterfall and there are other falls close by. There is a nice bridge and a playground for kids. Fun for the whole family!

A lot of trails blocked by fallen trees or branches, some blocked by yellow ribbon tape or A frame blockade. We took the chance and walked past them bc there wasn't too many options for hiking. The Falls were nice to look at. Great to go when it's much warmer for some sitting on the rocks that are right on the river.

$2 entrance fee per car. We hiked all of the trails across the suspension bridge and it totaled right around 2 miles. Many of the trails become impassable in spots due to fallen trees. There are about 4 trails, most follow the river which makes swimming easy.

There are 4 trails, two outer loops of about thw same length (blue= upstream, orange=downstream) and the center trails (double red and cabin trail). Cabin trail is short and takes you to the summit, definitely worth the time. All are good family trails, though the elevation near the middle of the loops was almost too much for our 4 year old. Great spots for wading in the Chauga and picnics on rocks.

Great hike for a family. You can chose short or long hike. Wade in the water or swim. Dogs are allowed off leash near the water. Love the bridge.

Warning: the longer hikes become very steep with drop offs, some tight paths with overgrowth.

Waterfall is very accessible.

$2 fee per car

Great hidden gem in SC.
