Issaqueena Falls / Stumphouse Tunnel

Issaqueena Falls / Stumphouse Tunnel

The Upcountry & Lake Hartwell Country

The Upcountry & Lake Hartwell Country

A short easy walking trail leads from Stumphouse Mountain Park to Issaqueena Falls, a beautiful 200-ft. cascade. Legend has it that the Indian maiden, Issaqueena, rode to the nearby fort to warn of a pending Indian attack and then escaped pursuing Indians by pretending to leap over the falls, but actually hiding beneath them. This easy hike will take you to the top of the falls, but a short path to the right will give you a grand view of the entire scene. Stumphouse Mountain tunnel is the remains of an 1850s attempt to link the port of Charleston to the cities of the Midwest by rail. The Civil War brought the construction to an end. The park has picnic facilities and trails.
