Twin Falls, South Carolina

When I took my trip to see waterfalls in South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia, Twin Falls ended up being one of my favorite waterfalls, and it was one of the last falls that I visited. I wasn’t even sure I was going to visit it, as there are many other waterfalls in the area, but I was extremely glad that I did. Twin Falls is a visually spectacular waterfall.

Twin Falls (aka Reedy Cove Falls or Eastatoe Falls) is has two waterfalls that are separated by a distance of 15 or more feet. This is not two subsequent drops, but instead a river that has separated somewhere beyond what we can see. It just makes for a great view! Another benefit to Twin Falls is that it is not that busy, mostly because it involves a rather complicated drive to a place that I was surprised to find people inhabiting in the first place! Still, any waterfall lover should definitely check out Twin Falls.

Directions:

  1. From Pickens, SC, head north on US-178 for 12 miles.
  2. About 3 miles after the intersection of US-178 and SC-11, you’ll turn left on Cleo Chapman Road (aka Pickens County Rd. S-100). It is very easy to miss this road, so pay very close attention! If you miss this turn, it is a while before you can turn around, and that can be complex because of all the curving and winding road.
  3. Carefully drive for 2 miles to Eastatoe Community Rd. Turn right.
  4. Drive for 1 mile on Eastatoe Community Rd. and then turn right onto Waterfalls Drive, which is a one-lane road.
  5. Veer left at the first fork in the road to the end of the road, which is indicated by a sign for a nature preserve.
  6. From here, follow the trail to the falls.
