Put “waterfall road Sumter, SC” into your GPS and it will take you right to the parking area for the easy hike.

Nice hike good footing worth the effort. On a sunny day might get lucky and see the rainbow from the falls.

A good easy 2 hour hike there and back. Have to jump the stream in a few places but completely doable. Very beautiful and calming wanted to stay longer but getting close to sundown. Will revisit this one with the kids for sure.

Beautiful fall. Access to bottom fairly easy can get behind top tier of fall.

Wow! Tough trail - both up and back. Well worth it! Took me and my group of three about 4.5 hours to complete, going all the way to the end.

I'm over weight with a knee problems pacing myself I was able to make it to the top.
It took me every bit of 3 hrs going up and 4 coming down.
words of encouragement.. The race isn't given to swift,but those who endure to the end.

This was my first hiking experience.
I enjoyed it immensely

Beautiful Hike !! Most of the hike is uphill but well worth the effort !! Follow the purple markers to gorgeous views and amazing falls !! It rained some yesterday so the falls were strong and with leaves off the trees, you could see forever !! Give your self about 45 mins up and 30 down. Enjoy and be safe !!
