A second visit to the Clemson Experimental Forest
First was a visit to a waterfall on a tributary of Todd Creek.
The parking area for this waterfall is on the south side of Brookbend Road, a short distance west of a bridge over Todd Creek. Get directions to the parking area with Google Maps.
The road is gated with metal cable.
I followed the directions to the waterfall in this PDF of a student slideshow. Walk down the road, through a meadow.
This waterfall is quite nice, even with the dead trees in the way.
Next it was over to the Todd Creek Falls parking area, a short distance away on the north side of the road beside the bridge. Get directions to this parking area with Google Maps. Cross directly over to the south side of the road where the path begins on the south and east side of the bridge.
Back in February I was here to visit the waterfall and the spring. This time I'm here to visit a dam used by a grist mill.
The path is just as easy to follow as my last visit, though the vegetation is beginning to get tall.
I did accidentally startle a snake on the way back to the parking area, but it moved so quickly into the creek I didn't get a photo.
My next destination was the Wildcat Creek Picnic shelter near Issaqueena Lake to visit Wildcat Creek Falls. The gate to the picnic areas was closed at the time I visited in February, but is now open until November.
The entrance to the picnic area is just before where Issaquena Lake Road crosses over Wildcat Creek. Get directions to the picnic area entrance with Google Maps.
The most interesting thing I found, actually the only interesting thing I found, was this red painted metal can suspended by rope from a tree.
Last is Meadow Falls, the southern most waterfall visited this day
On the south side of R C Edwards School Road, between Old 6 Mile Road and 6 Mile Highway, is a parking area to access a network of trails. Get directions to this parking area with Google Maps.
I saw nobody the whole day, except on the way back from Meadow Falls I spotted some people on bikes and a couple with unleashed dogs (sigh).
As usual, I uploaded my trip photos to an album on Flickr and an album on Google Photos. I've also added these waterfalls to my (incomplete) map Upstate South Carolina Waterfalls.
