This is NOT a loop. It was a good point to point trail. We did it in the evening starting at the top and going down.

It's an easy hike to the platform and base of these two large waterfalls. I believe that the falls are also called Eastatoe Falls.

The forest section of the trail is quiet, peaceful, and beautiful. Having traveled all over the world this trail provides me with a sense of serenity.

Pretty, but disappointing - wildlife not in evidence. Terrible GPS directions from within app, but looked at recent hiker map to find trail head.

I was looking for a challenge, and this was it! I wouldn't attempt this without a trail map, it can get a little confusing with all the connectors. Toughest hike in South Carolina so far!

I had a great time figuring this trail out. You just need to read up on it before you go. Fields for days and you might have to take your shoes off and wade through the creeks, esp after it rains but it's worth it. You basically have to rock climb to get to the falls but that's kind of the best part. Def a fun adventure for me.
