Overlook Falls, South Carolina

Overlook Falls (31)

Overlook Falls in March 2017

This an odd little waterfall that you’ll find at…surprise…an overlook between two numbered South Carolina roads. I wouldn’t necessarily go out of my way to see the falls, but it ends up that Whitewater Falls and Sloan Bridge Falls are found on opposite sides, so if you’re looking for waterfalls in far northwest South Carolina, you might end up passing by the falls anyway.

It is an easy waterfall to miss, but it’s also an easy waterfall to visit once you find it. I think I may have passed this a few times along the way, and had to backtrack a bit to find it. If you’re driving west, the falls will be on your right. There’s a large parking area/pullout on the left (if headed west). It doesn’t have a whole lot of water flowing at any point in time, so the best time to see the falls would be after a heavy rain.

Directions:

  1. The waterfall is found on State Road S-37-413 between SC-130 and SC-107.
  2. If you’re headed west on S-37-413, the falls will be on the right just before the parking area on the left. You may have to walk a bit to get closer to the falls.

Accessibility: 10/10 (easy)
Height: 15′
Length of Hike: roadside
