Long Creek Falls – Oconee County, South Carolina


South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Oconee County Photos  |  Long Creek Falls

The Long Creek Falls, located in Oconee County, are just about one mile north of the Three Forks area of the Appalachian Trail. The 50-foot cascading waterfall has a refreshing plunge pool which makes it a popular spot for hikers to cool off.

Long Creek is located off the Chattooga River, which runs along the Georgia-South Carolina border. The river has challenging whitewater rapids available to rafters and kayakers alike. If navigating the rapids isn’t your specialty, there is a moderate, hour-long hiking trail to the falls. However, since it is not an official Forest Service trail, it is not well marked; be sure to print out directions to the Long Creek Falls hiking trail before you go.

Besides providing a beautiful view, Long Creek Falls is famous for its appearance in the movie Deliverance. If you follow the Chattooga River from Long Creek Falls, you will come across a large boulder known as “Deliverance rock” because several scenes from the movie were shot there.

Photographer David Vanover says that the falls are a popular resting spot for rafters on the Chattooga River, and that there are often campers on the sandy beach where the creek empties into the river.
