The Upcountry & Lake Hartwell Country

The Upcountry & Lake Hartwell Country

In Sumter National Forest, Opossum Creek Falls is a cascade of about 50 feet. It requires a relatively difficult, two-mile hike, with the last 1/2 mile fairly strenuous. For most of the hike, you'll encounter patches of wildflowers and lush ferns. The terrain offers excellent habitat for wild turkey, bobcat, and even the reclusive black bear. DIFFICULTY: Difficult. TIME: 2 hours one way.
