Hike to Kings Creek Falls

0.5 miles  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by Whitney Conley

A beautiful 70ft waterfall in South Carolina with an easy .5 mile trail and great spots to hang out around the falls.

The trail to Kings Creek begins behind the bulletin board in the Burrells Ford primitive campground parking lot. It is an easy .5 mile trail to the falls. The falls are only 70ft high but they are beautiful, there is an area to the side of the falls with some nice sitting rocks and the area underneath the falls is very shallow so it's easy for children to wade around in it.

Great hike!

Beautiful waterfall and relatively short hike. Canā€™t beat it!

Beautiful Falls!

Nice, leisurely hike to these falls. Afterwards go a short walk or drive further down Burrells Ford Rd to the trailhead on right. It's slightly hidden but there are signs about campfires. This trail takes you for a short walk along the river and after crossing a creek take an immediate right and climb a few switchbacks to reach Spoonauger Falls!

A Good Surprise

I went to this waterfall as an addition to a hike down the Chattooga river recently. As you're hiking up to the falls it seems to come out of no where and was a pleasant surprise. A beautiful and fairly easy falls to get too. I would recommend it to others as well.
