How to find us

The trail head is located off of SC-28, on the left, just before you get to the Issaqueena Stumphouse entrance. If using Waze/Googlemaps, you can search for Issagueena Falls Trail - and it will get you there. I'll be the guy with a clipboard and gray F-150 pick up.

(M) YELLOW BRANCH FALLS
START TIME: 10:00 AM, RETURN TIME: 2:00 PM

M: 4, EG: 750, R: M

This hike starts with a pleasant ramble at Yellow Branch State Park to a 50-foot cascade in a typical mixed hardwood forest. Water flow has been fairly good, so expect that waterfall to be fantastic. There are several small creek crossings - but little chance that you should get your feet wet. But always good to pack a dry pair of socks.

Please plan to meet at 9:45 AM in the trail head parking lot.
