King Creek Waterfalls - Mountain Rest SC

Sumter National Forest
112 Andrew Pickens Circle
Mountain Rest, SC 29664
Phone: 864-638-9568
This might be the perfect waterfalls to visit with the whole family.  It is an easy 0.6 mile hike to a picturesque 70-foot waterfall where you feel you could relax all day with your feet in the water.  King Creek topples over a tiered rock face that slants backwards, making the falls seem much higher than 70-feet.  The hiking trail runs through a mixture of hardwoods, rhododendron and mountain laurel.
