This falls is very picturesque, but requires a two-hour trek that involves negotiating a few large rocks and trees at the end. The 50-foot Opossum Creek Falls is at the end of a 2 mile hike along a forest service trail shaded by hardwoods and bordered at times by wildflowers. The difficulty occurs when you reach the Chattooga River and turn to go up Opossum Creek along a heavily vegetated path for a time-consuming half-mile hike to the base of the falls. This area is excellent habitat for wild turkey, bobcat and even black bear.
