Moody Spring – Walhalla, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Oconee County Photos | Moody Spring
For travelers winding along the mountain roads of Oconee County, happening upon Moody Spring just outside of Walhalla makes for an interesting – and refreshing – stop. The spring is named for one of the area’s early families and today provides benches for sitting and sipping the cool mountain water. The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources defines a spring as “a place where groundwater flows naturally from rock or soil onto the land surface or into a body of water.” Moody Spring flows at a rate of 1.5 gallons per minute.
Local lore claims that the ghost of a hitchhiker waits for rides along this stretch of road in the Sumter National Forest. The story surrounds a pilot from the Upstate named Larry Stevens who crashed near the spring on a rainy night in the 1950s. His apparition is said to appear at the spring on rainy nights, leaving a pool of water in the car of those who dare to give him a ride.
