Licklog & Pigpen Falls - Mountain Rest SC

Sumter National Forest
112 Andrew Pickens Circle
Mountain Rest, SC 29664
Phone: 864-638-9568
Less than a mile hike down the Chattooga Trail offers two waterfalls: the two-tiered, 80-foot Licklog Falls and the 25-foot stack of Pigpen Falls.  Licklog Creek tumbles into Pigpen as two long, divided veils which empty into a sandy pool.  Farther down the trail is the first section of Licklog, a two-tiered 30-foot high falls with a sandy bottomed swimming hole.  Another 50 yards down the trail is the second section, a 50-foot tier that dumps directly into the Chattooga River.  To see the Licklog Falls from the trail is easy, but the descent to the base of the waterfalls is quite difficult.  A large camping area is nearby. So, remember when ncamping in the Sumter National Forest to visit these waterfalls.
