Trip Planner: USA / South Carolina / Walhalla / Issaqueena Falls
Issaqueena Falls, near Walhalla, South Carolina, is a 100 ft (30 m) high cascade waterfall in the Oconee District of the Sumter National Forest.Use our Walhalla trip planner to arrange your visit to Issaqueena Falls and other attractions in Walhalla.
The falls are named for a legendary Cherokee girl who is said to have leaped from the top of the falls with her lover, either an Oconee brave, a white trader named Allan Francis, or a white silversmith named David Francis. In the story, Issaqueena and her lover either die together or they land on a ledge out of sight of hostile tribesmen and eventually live happily ever after.
The waterfall is close to another notable local landmark, Stumphouse Tunnel, and a park provides access to both.

The falls are very easy to view. It’s only about a quarter mile easy walk to a viewing spot. The surrounding areas of the park are very pretty.

I wish there was an easier way to get closer to the falls, it's very steep and covered in fallen leaves right now other than that it's gorgeous here. There is a pathway to an observation deck so you can still see the falls which is nice. There's also 3 or 4 little picnic tables nearby
Beautiful waterfall to see. Very steep & difficult hike down and back up if you want to get up close and personal. Easy paved pathway to the lookout deck though.
