Beautiful Lee Falls is located near Walhalla
in Oconee County
. The 75-foot waterfall has no official trail going to it, and the well-worn path made by hikers is said to be quite difficult. That said, the 1.5 hour hike is well worth the effort to see this lovely waterfall in person.

The waterfall's secluded location and misty atmosphere create a perfect habitat for fabulous flora and fauna. Hikers have reported seeing Oconee bells
, bulblet ferns, mosses, unusual amphibians, and much more near Lee Falls.
Did you know South Carolina
is home to some of the Southeast's most stunning waterfalls and cascades
? Our waterfalls spill over glossy granite walls, barrel past boulders, and plunge down rocky cliffs. While many visitors flock to the beach during the summertime swelter, a dive into a cool waterfall pool offers a tranquil escape from the crowds.
