Sweet Thing

After finishing up our Carson Creek Adventure and getting the flat tire changed out on my truck. We decided we had time for one more short hike.

A few weeks ago I saw a waterfall photo on Darrin's Facebook page called "Sweet Thing" and inquired about it's location.   When I heard where it was I was amazed that I have never heard of it before.  So to close out our day Darrin would show Andy and I exactly where it is.

It is on Public Property and a nice trail leads right to it!  However, the trail is not signed, there is no real parking area, and you would never spot it if you didn't know exactly where to look.  About halfway between the US-276/Hwy 11 split and Wildcat Roadside Falls another small stream passes under the road.

We parked in the grassy area alongside the road and made our way upstream.  About 100 yards upstream we arrived at the first waterfall which I am calling Lower Sweet Thing for lack of a better name.

After spending a few minutes photographing the lower falls, we continued up the trail for about a quarter mile to the main attraction!

Sweet Thing

Sweet thing is a real pretty free fall of about 15-20 feet.  Again I can't believe I never heard about this one before!

We finished up the day with some nice greasy Burgers and Fries at the Echo Valley Gas Station in Cleveland, SC.

The perfect ending to a great day of Waterfall Wandering.
