At the junction with the Foothills Trail, turn toward Tamassee Knob. On the return trip, take the short spur to Station Cove Falls.

Decent enough trail, but I expected more views from Tamasee Knob, when it was really more like what you would get from a viewing waypoint. Stopped at Station Cove falls on the way up, just a quick jaunt off the trail, very beautiful. Overall a pretty moderate hike, took a little over 3 hours to complete. The Oconee connector trail that you hike on the majority of the way will take you all the way to Oconee state park if you keep going straight at the turnoff for Tamasee knob.
