Whitewater Falls is the highest waterfall east of the Rockies. The falls plunge an amazing 411 feet! South Carolina's Lower Whitewater Falls drops another 400 feet. Because of the escarpment's difficult access and rugged terrain, much of the area receives few visitors and has remained wild and undeveloped over the years. In the cool, moist shade of steep slopes and rock cliffs, wildflowers and salamanders abound. This wild land is also a perfect haven for a rich array of ferns, mosses, and fungi. Enjoy the beauty of berries and blooms throughout the seasons.
Dress: You will need hiking boots, and hiking poles, as well as a backpack with hiking essentials, and emergency medication.
Dress appropriately. Layers are recommended.
I recommend you download the RoadiD app and have your emergency contacts identified and with you via the app or paper, sealed in a plastic bag, in your backpack.
We will rely on the AllTrails app for this ch8se. My attempts to scout this prior to Saturday have been unsuccessful, so in all transparency, know that we will explore this adventure for the first time together. No worries, I trust myself, my abilities to navigate us safely, and the proven accuracy of AllTrails.
Thank you for choosing to embr8ce the ch8se with us.
We look forward to meeting you soon.
