Horseshoe Falls

Horseshoe Falls

Cedar Shoals Creek drops down this small rock falls just before it runs into the Enoree River at the site of South Carolina’s Battle of Musgrove Mill State Historic Site.

It has been abnormally dry in this region of the state so there were limited splash options to photograph, on the other hand more of the textured rock was visible than there would be with a big flow. And I was able to  get different angles without getting my feet wet!

As falls go this one is quite modest, but as I’ve been living in the SC Low Country that is just above sea level for three years any elevation is something to see.

  1. Pretty captures! The walking path is very nice to these falls, isn’t it? I did get some decent photos working angles without people, but then had a few teenagers walking all over the rocks. 🙁 Apparently a popular place for locals to go swimming.

  2. In 1973, while attending Presbyterian College In Clinton, SC, some friends made yet another trip out to Horseshoe Falls. At that time only a small path took you from the highway above down to the falls. I suppose over four years we went to HF maybe 30 times. However, on one trip, after several days of heavy rain locally and upstate, the water roaring over the rocks was 17 feet high. The noise was deafening and the water was extremely dangerous. We stayed there all day but I’ve never seen anything like it. One step into the water meant you were dead and gone. I pulled an iron bolt from the remains of the mill bridge and still have it. Dated back to 1780’s.

    1. Wow, that must have been an amazing sight, and yes loud and dangerous, Kevin! It’s hard for me to even picture that much water there. Its a cool spot to have spent some of your college down time. Thanks for stopping by and for commenting.
