Getting There

Easy to moderate hike that is a little hard to find off 748 since the 748C sign is tucked away from the road. The hike down to the Chauga river is easy, but it is a good workout back up to the road. The well maintained trail starts a ways down the forestry road, so keep your eyes open for the Riley Moore Falls sign to the left of the road.

HikingGreat!

Easy and short hike to a pretty, although not tall, waterfall with a sandy beach area. Went on a cold Saturday in January and met up with a dozen or more people, so I imagine it would be quite popular in warmer weather.

We parked at the 748C sign and walked the primitive road in. Our Journey Crossroad could have made it to the gate though. Easy in, more moderate going back as most was uphill. Pretty falls, great beach. Can't wait to try it in Summer.

Great!

Good Trail but the road can be slippery when wet. 4 wheel drive for sure. Great beach area. I walked entire route. Took about 3 hours to get all the pics I wanted, being 70 might have been part to blame.

Other than slick, muddy conditions this is a simple hike to an amazing waterfall.

Great hike for our family (9 yo & 3 yo). We parked at the turnoff for the dirt track so the hike would be about 2 miles round trip. The sandy beach with the falls was a lot of fun for our kids. Return hike is uphill but the grade isn’t bad. The little one was tired but made it.

This was certainly one of my favorite falls in the Oconee, SC area. Definitely should be added to the to do list. Trail to falls is very easy and easily followed.

HikingGreat!Muddy

With a 4x4 you can easily drive 1 mile back to the trailhead then the falls are 1.9 out & back. We went right after a rain & the service road was slick (not good for my Dodge Journey). Still wasn't a bad hike, at all, in or out. The falls are absolutely beautiful.

HikingGreat!

Very Short Hike being under 2 miles roundtrip. Beautiful Falls with a great swimming hole! Great for the elderly and kids! Nice wide path with gradual downhill. If you go, please make sure you take your trash/garbage with you to leave this pretty falls in its natural state. Thanks! Quick Video Review of Our Hike: https://youtu.be/2LvHeVXXSS0

Hiking

the hiking trail was a good test run for my 8 year old with asthma...the hike back was a bit tougher, but he managed very well. The road that leads to the trail is narrow and definitely for a smaller 4wheel drive vehicle or you can walk it, the road isn't a terrible walk to the trail, but it is uphill on the return, manageable for my 8 year old with a few stops for a breather.

Gets interesting if you don’t have a 4WD to get down to the trail head.

The drive down was a bit long. The hike wasn’t too bad, it was very peaceful. The waterfalls were very relaxing and beautiful.

The trail is well marked, well worn, but narrow in spots. Despite this it was well maintained, kid and dog friendly. The falls are beautiful and worth a climb to the top if you’re careful and able. Was not crowded when we went but was told it is extremely busy area in the summer.

Beautiful spot. Not crowded today at all. Will be coming back to swim when it’s warmer. Easy, beautiful hike down. Difficult hike back out, all uphill.
