This is an easy out and back trail to Long Creek Falls in Sumter National Forest of South Carolina. The trail follows a wide gravel road before branching off to the right and heading toward the falls. The path is steep at the end as it leads down to the river.

Getting Started

Navigate to the trailhead off Turkey Ridge Road, a well-kept gravel road that branches off from Battlecreek Road. The road appears to dead end in a parking lot, but the trail actually starts off to the right along an extension of that same road. The road becomes impassible a bit further down, so best to park here and hike along the road until it branches off into an actual trail.

Taking Children

This is an easy hike for children but use caution at the base of the waterfall, as rocks may be slippery. Depending on the amount of rain, you may need to wade across a small stream to access the base of the falls.

    Trail starts at a “primitive road” sign and is a nice walk until going down to the water. It’s steep. Be prepared to cross the creek to get close to the waterfall. It was ankle deep the day I was there.
