Need to Know

Visitors are advised to use caution as the initial segment of the trail is fairly steep and made up of a patchwork of pavement.

Description

Rocky Creek Trail is located along Rocky Creek, a tributary of the Catawba River. This natural surface trail is suitable for running and biking. The trail begins in the southern end of the parking lot and goes downhill towards Rocky Creek. At the river access, the trail comes to a "T" and there is a canoe/kayak launch spot. Following the trail to the left at the "T" will lead you to a scenic waterfall 0.2 miles down the trail. Following the trail to the right at the "T" will lead you approximately 1.2 miles along the trail with views of Rocky Creek.

If you turn right, you'll eventually reach a portion of the trail that is gated and fenced. You are allowed to continue along the trail through this portion. However, please be respectful of the private property and do not go beyond the fence. This portion of the trail is very scenic as Rocky Creek courses through a series of rocky shoals.

Parking is available at the trailhead (1030 Chester Ave, Great Falls, SC 29055).
