Whitewater Falls Trail

This easy 0.6 mile-round trip will reward you with a spectacular view of the highest waterfall in the Eastern United States. Take Highway 64 East to Cashiers, turn right onto Highway 107 South for 9.3 miles. At the Whitewater Falls sign, turn left to SC 130. Continue 2.3 miles to a stop sign and turn left onto Whitewater Road (SR 1171). Drive 1.1 miles to the Whitewater Falls sign and turn right. The trail descends very steeply to the river. There is another overlook about 100 feet further down the trail. To the left, the trail continues to the river and fords the river. There are numerous places for picnicking as well as shallow pools for wading and quick dips.
