An easy, 30-minute hike through a beautiful Appalachian cove forest takes you to Station Cove Falls, a stepped 60-foot waterfall. Station Creek drops from its headwaters atop Station Mountain to eventually form this falls. It is nearby (about 1 mile) Oconee Station State Historic Site, which the county's first European settlers built in 1792, and is also known as Oconee Station Falls or Station Falls. In the spring and summer, countless wildflowers bloom along the trail. You may see trillium, mayapple, pink lady’s slipper orchids, bloodroot, and redbud. The boulders at the base of the falls make a nice area for picnicking.
