Twin Falls — Sunset, South Carolina


SC Picture Project  |  Pickens County  |  Twin Falls

Twin Falls – also known as Eastatoe Falls, Reedy Cove Falls, and Rock Falls – is just a quick 15-minute hike into the Eastatoe Valley (pronounced “EAST-a-tow-ee”) in Sunset. The trail culminates at an observation deck. Like many of the waterfalls in South Carolina, the Twin Falls are best viewed after a good rain.

The waterfall on the right, pictured here, cascades down a 45-degree pitch. At their base, the two falls merge and continue down Reedy Cove Creek.

The hiking trail to Twin Falls begins in a parking lot near Pickens. The trail goes through a private nature preserve, but it is open for public use.

Eastatoe is said to be Cherokee for Carolina parakeet, a native bird that is now extinct due to deforestation, hunting, and capture. Eastatoe also doubled as the name of a Cherokee tribe based in this area.

Please note that there is another Eastatoe Falls on the other side of the South Carolina-North Carolina state line. It is located on private property off Old Rosman Highway south of Brevard. The Eastatoe Falls in North Carolina is fed by Shoal Creek, whereas the Eastatoe Falls in South Carolina is fed by Rocky Cove Creek.

My great, great grandfather, James Roach, lived in this area in 1850. His wife, Elizabeth, had 6 children. What a beautiful place to raise a family.
