Upper Bearwallow Falls Professional Review and Guide

"Upper Bearwallow Falls, once called Snakerock Falls, is part of Gorges State Park. A vista of the whitewater pourover is accessed by the Bearwallow Falls Trail. Gorges State Park is characterized by the rugged terrain of the Blue Ridge Escarpment, with dramatic elevation changes up to 2,000 feet in 4 miles, plunging rivers, remote gorges, and sheer rock walls. In the state park, there are more than a dozen falls, some on the Toxaway River and Bearwallow Creek and others on their tributaries and other smaller streams. You can access the spectacular Gorges section of the Foothills Trail from the other side of the park, where several deep rivers course down into Lake Jocassee."
