Explore the most popular no dogs trails in South Carolina with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Decent view but very close to rushing traffic and it’s smell. Not ideal for clear days when it’s crowded.

Wow! So beautiful today even with the rain! The open fields of green stood out with the brown trees. While is was soggy the hike was easy. The parking area is just slightly past the directions on the right. As noted in a previous review the Creek crossings, are marked with a blue tag. Your feet will get wet on the 4 crossings. Luckily today wasn’t a cold day so I survived! The falls were beautiful. The last section of the trail has quite a few downed trees from all of the recent rain and storms. Well worth the hike though.

Never disappoints! Absolutely love this bridge!

Good for birding and biking.

Very informative. Great for families.

Paved trail and great views. Worth doing this walk if you’re wanting inclines and declines

Have completed this a few times walking and running. Great views of downtown Charleston and the harbour. I would suggest doing this for the Cooper River Bridge Run. Tons of people, but fun for sure!!

We had a beautiful 65 degree winter day to run along this route! we've been in the hot buggy summer too, and there were still lots of birds to see! We also saw a gator, bald eagle, And bobcat! For running, it's nice and flat and the cars are all usually stopped for photos. We ran 3 miles down the driving trail and back for a 6 mile run, but could have made it a longer run

Hiked this December 19, over a week after 6” or so of snow. Got our feet wet crossing 4 streams. We avoided the mud in the fields. At the boulders it was more difficult than previous hikes here, due to multiple fallen trees. The falls are stunning.

I do the bridge quite often. It is exercise with a view!

Very informative history site where the civil war began.

Love love love this place!

Nice, easy trail through a couple different environments (swamp, highland forest, rice fields).

It was decent. $30 for 3 of us was a little out there for a mile and a half walk. Hiked many places in the United States for free that had more to see. Gets repetitive. Definitely good for beginners though. Nice and flat

Beautiful trail anytime of the year. My son and I love this place. Very quite and peaceful. Birds and alligators galore.

Love the view! Very flat concrete path across the dam. Of course, I found the one piece of broken concrete when I went walking at sundown and came back across in the dark. Twisted my ankle a little. If you park on the Lexington side, it is free and you can make a bathroom stop and rest under one of the covered picnic areas on the Irmo side.

hike/ trail run combo great views and trails

Go meet your history! Very easy stroll about the Fort after a ferry over! Highly recommend!

Stunning! Make sure to take the boat ride!

The falls are beautiful, the fields of deer food plots you have to go through not so much. They've just been planted, and heavy rain on our way back turned them into rice paddies.
The way is confusing. The entrance to the woods is currently marked with a vertical stick with blue surveyors' tape. If you're hiking with dogs, just follow them.
We did not get stung by stinging nettle this time, but did see some -- watch out.
We were told by an Oconee native that the old rock structures visible along the trail are gold smelting pits.
I hiked in Tevas and got my feet wet four times going in and the whole way back (fields became seas of mud).

This trail is in the middle of nowhere but it is absolutely worth it. As for the trail, once you walk through the fields it gets a bit difficult to follow due to poor trail markings(follow the map in the app and you will be fine). Once you start getting closer to the falls the trail gets substantially worse and you have to climb up quite a ways over fallen trees and large rocks. All this being said, the falls are definitely worth the strenuous hike. I will definitely do this one again.

Cool place!

Great view of the city and the only place around to do some climbing for cyclists.

Trail markings are sub par, so basically go through fence, keep cutting through several fields, then eventually on the right corner of the field there is the entrance to the actually trail.

Trail itself is in decent shape but still poorly marked.

However, the falls are TOTALLY worth it. Bring a camera and hammock!
