Station Cove Falls, South Carolina

Station Cove Falls (56)

Station Cove Falls in March 2009

Station Cove Falls (aka Oconee Station Falls) is a very pleasant waterfall in Oconee County, South Carolina. The trail to the waterfall is extremely pleasant, and when I visited in March 2009, was completely covered in red and yellow trillium, Hepatica, and bloodroot. The trail is also very appropriate for children, as there is not much elevation change.

The only negative about this waterfall is the parking. There is parking for 4-5 cars/trucks, but when I got there, there were already 4 trucks there. I had to maneuver my way onto the grass to park. Other websites suggest parking down at the Oconee Historic Site, but that was closed when I visited. Even so, still check out the falls!

Directions:

  1. From Walhalla, drive north on SC-11 for about 6 miles to Oconee Station Road.
  2. Turn Left on Oconee Station Road and drive down the road for about 2.5 miles.
  3. You will pass the Historic Site on the right, and then the parking area for the falls will be very soon after that on the left.
  4. Find parking and then head down the very clearly marked trail.

Accessibility: 10/10 (easy)
Height: 60′
Length of Hike: 1.5 miles round-trip
