Most people don’t realize that Oconee County in South Carolina is home to more than 150 waterfalls. But it is! And perhaps the most rewarding waterfall hike during the warmer months is the two-mile journey through the forest that ends at a waterfall that spans 100 feet across the Chauga River. Pair an early morning hike with a swim day when you hike to Riley Moore Falls, near Long Creek.
