The South Carolina Park Service manages a piece of land off of highway 11 between Caesar’s Head and Jones Gap state parks called Wildcat Wayside. The short trail begins with a steep set of stairs climbing right beside a small, but beautiful, waterfall.
The trail at Wildcat Wayside starts off with a steep set of stairs climbing right beside a small, but beautiful, waterfall. The rest of the short trail is an easy, gently sloping walk that begins under a canopy of white pine and hemlock, follows a stream through thickets of rhododendron and mountain laurel, and ends at the base of a 130 foot waterslide.
NOTE: The State Park Service has closed the trail to the upper falls because of the many previous accidents, but an excellent view of the upper falls is possible without crossing the dangerous boulders.Directions:
