Opossum Creek Road Professional Reviews and Guides
"Leading to one of my favorite waterfalls in the state, this hike will challenge you physically, but the rewards are well worth the effort. The trail leads you through a diverse forest, before you find yourself on a spectacular sandy beach right on the banks of the famous Wild and Scenic Chattooga River.
The views here are outstanding, and the water is calm enough for you and the dogs to take a dip. From the river, the trail follows Opossum Creek upstream to the base of Opossum Creek Falls. The falls are fabulous! Bring a picnic and spend the day."
--Melissa Watson, Best Dog Hikes South Carolina (Falcon Guides).
"Stupendous! With its brilliant, milky-white water, Opossum Creek Falls warms the heart and soul. Its mossy face and spongy touch make this waterfall truly an amazing thing to see and feel. Easily on the Authors Favorites List, this is one of my choice spots to spend a day."
--Melissa Watson, Hiking Waterfalls in Georgia and South Carolina (Falcon Guides).
