Take A Magical Waterfall Hike In South Carolina To Long Creek Falls, If You Can Find It
Not all watefall trails in the Palmetto State are marked by well-trodden paths and colorful blazes making it easy to stay on track. But some, including the trail to Long Creek Falls, are completely worth the added challenge of actually finding the waterfall when the path isn’t worn in or particularly well marked. Throw on those hiking boots and head to Long Creek, South Carolina, to discover a 3.2-mile round trip journey to a waterfall deep in the heart of the Sumter National Forest.
