Todd Creek Falls is tucked away near the small town of Six Mile. Even though it isn’t a well known SC waterfall, these falls are a popular hangout for Pickens County residents. They drop 15 feet and splash into a refreshing plunge pool.
There is a half-mile hike along Todd Creek that will get you to the waterfall. It is an easy hike, and is a great place for a picnic.
The rapids along Todd Creek between Brookbend Road and Lake Hartwell are classified as a class IV+ section by American Whitewater. The best time to paddle the creek is during March when the rainfall is the highest.
Jesse Richardson of Brevard, NC set out to find Todd Creek Falls after seeing it in a book. He captured this shot in May 2009 and says, “This fall is truly a rare gem. It doesn’t look as though many people know about it, as it isn’t exactly in an obvious location for a waterfall. It’s definitely worth the short hike, and the pool is deep enough for a short dip. This is no doubt one of the best hidden falls in the area.”
