Carrick Creek Falls – Pickens County, South Carolina

South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Pickens County Photos  |  Carrick Creek Falls

Table Rock State Park is a place where nature enthusiasts could spend many days hiking, camping, and enjoying the views. The park is mountainous and has numerous small waterfalls along its hiking trails. Carrick Creek Falls is one of the first hints given to hikers trekking to the top of Table Rock that their hard work will be rewarded with astounding beauty.

The falls can be found within the park at the trail head. They flow just beyond the nature center and introduce visitors to the beauty of Table Rock. Even non-hikers can enjoy spending time at the falls, rock-hopping, wading, and photographing the lush greenery that surrounds the cascade.

Those wishing to hike within the park but who may not want to commit to the 7.2-mile round trip on Table Rock Trail can hike the Carrick Creek Nature Trail, a 1.5-mile loop that is far-less time consuming yet still showcases the waterfall and mountain vegetation.

Make sure to register at the nature center before adventuring out into Table Rock Park so that the park rangers know you’re there and know where you are going. See more SC waterfalls.

Reflections on Carrick Creek Falls

Contributor Matthew Pautz of Greenville says: “This is Carrick Creek Falls, the first major waterfall you come across when hiking in Table Rock State Park.”

He continues: “It is a small but beautiful waterfall that is easily accessed and enjoyed, and it is a great representation of the sights you can experience inside Table Rock State Park, even if you don’t want to hike to the top. On a summer day, you can see families enjoying the waterfall and playing in the cool waters surrounding it. It is truly a peaceful place.”
