The Remote Hike To Big Bend Falls In South Carolina Winds Through A National Forest To A Scenic River
For a challenging hike that’s also rated easy, head to the Sumter National Forest for a more than seven mile round trip journey to a mighty waterfall found deep in the forest. If you like trails that aren’t laden with scores of other hikers, then choose this one. Although it’s rated easy, the remoteness of the waterfall’s location turns this routine trail into a test of stamina. But the powerful Big Bend Falls is so worth the journey if you’re up for the hike.
