True Or Not, The Eerie Legend Behind Issaqueena Falls At South Carolina’s Tunnel Park Is Fascinating
For those who spend the majority of their time in the midland or coastal regions of South Carolina, it may come as a surprise to learn that the Palmetto State is home to hundreds of waterfalls. (Oconee County, alone, boasts more than 150 waterfalls.) However, none of them has the same eerie legend behind it as the 100-foot Issaqueena Falls found just north of Walhalla in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Today, Issaqueena Falls is found at the end of a very short 0.3-mile hike. The attraction is adjacent to Stumphouse Tunnel outside of Walhalla.
