One of Oconee County’s most scenic waterfall, this 75-foot high falls has no official trail. But hikers and hunters have been making the difficult, 1.5 mile trip here for hundreds of years. Tamassee Creek feeds the falls and the surrounding vegetation which includes botanical rarities such as Oconee bells and bulblet ferns. A spray cliff also buttresses the waterfall, allowing a quasi-aquatic habitat of amphibians, mosses, and ferns to thrive. You'll cross several streams on the way to falls, so be prepared to get your feet wet. Hunting is allowed in this area so wear brightly colored clothes.
