Todd Creek Falls is a local picnic spot for Pickens County residents, and a very pretty spot of a picnic, at that. The falls are 15 to 20 feet high and lay along a power line right-of-way on Clemson University land.
Todd Creek Falls is a block falls owned by Clemson University and Duke Energy. The falls, stretched across Todd Creek, drops 20 feet. This requires an easy 20 minute hike to get to. At the base of the waterfall is a swimming hole, and a short distance down the trail is an old spring and an old mill dam worth checking out.
