Beginning from the parking
area for the Stumphouse Tunnel, this 15-minute hike to
Issaqueena Falls is an easy excursion for even the beginning hiker, and
it’s rich in lore and history. That’s why it is no stretch to lump
this 100-foot cascade among the most popular in Oconee County, and among
the most beautiful.
Also in the park is the Stumphouse Tunnel, which is 25 feet high, 17
feet wide, and although it was not completed, extends 1,617 feet into
the mountain. You can walk to the end of the tunnel, but be aware there
may be water and you will need a flashlight to find your way.

to the falls:
From Walhalla drive west on SC 28 for 6.9 miles and turn right into
Stumphouse Tunnel Park.
Pass through the gate and follow the road to the parking lot and picnic
area on the right.
Park and walk across the footbridge on the west side of the parking lot.
From here a path curving to the right side of the falls is apparent.
This trail gives a fine view of the falls and its boulder-strewn creek
course through the deeply incised valley below.
