Couldn’t find the trail. When I asked around, it has been destroyed by loggers.

My dogs loved this hike. The water at the end is really pretty - especially in the morning sun. The only bummer is that the trail is REALLY undefined. There are some blue flags along some portions of the trail to mark it but the rest is difficult to discern. (By the way - I didn't think the litter was as bad as some reviews indicated.)

I rate as easy, kid and dog friendly. Parking questionable, 'no parking' signs at only entrance. Parked on opposite side. LOTS OF LITTER! Docked 2 stars for litter. Cliff jumping a plus

Short trail to a cool spot. Right next to the Pickens bend range so you can here the sweet sound of freedom on your way to the swimming hole. Lost a star due to trash being present all along the trail and lost a star because if it hasn't been raining and you wouldn't really wanna get in the water here making the point of this trail pretty pointless.

Could not find where it started.... No signs or anything that looked like the start of a trail (where it said on the map).

Hiking trail is alright and a little dirty, but once you get to the end the actual quarry is one of the best swimming spots in Clemson so bring a swimsuit and towel!

It was nice and a easy walk, but a little dirty from all the partiers.

Nice walk to the lake. Some fun areas to look around. It is an easy hike.
