A well-maintained trail leads from the parking area to a platform for viewing this 100-foot cascade of Cane Creek. Nearby is a picnic area and the Stumphouse Tunnel.

Loading Trails

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.

Payment: $5 per vehicle - cash or online payment via QR Code posted.


1.) From Walhalla drive west on SC 28 for 6.9 miles and turn right into Stumphouse Tunnel Park.

2.) Pass through the gate and follow the road to the parking lot and picnic area on the right.

3.) Park and walk across the footbridge on the west side of the parking lot.

4.) 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.
