moderate to strenuous 9-15 miles - the group will decide

The attraction is the pleasant and fairly easy 2.5-mile hike along the East Fork or Fish Hatchery Trail from the Walhalla Fish Hatchery to the Chattooga River. The falls are at the one-mile mark along the trail. Look for the stepping stones mounted on cement in the creek and look upstream to see the 10-foot falls. The trail follows the East Fork of the Chattooga River to where it joins the main branch of the Chattooga River. The East Fork trail ends at the Fourty Thousand Dollar Bridge over the East Fork where it intersects the Chattooga Trail. About 2 miles upstream of this intersection on the Chattooga Trail are Ellicott Rock and Commissioners Rock where two 19th-century surveys found SC, NC and GA to meet. (Considering the technology that the surveyors were using at the time, they were only a few yards off the actual meeting spot.) About 3 miles downstream on the Chattooga Trail is Burrells Ford Road and Burrells Ford Campground
