Misty Falls has no trail associated with it so its a pretty strenuous hike and directions to this falls is difficult to communicate. But only 0.2 mile away is Mashbox Falls so getting 2 falls in one trip is worth the hike!
1. From the Post Office in Cleveland where US 276 and SC 11 meet, take 276 fo 10.1 miles to a narrow gravel road on your RIGHT. In the summer there is often a man who sells apples and honey.
2. Turn down the gravel road and park alongside it.
3. Walk back up to US 276 in and along the guardrail. Near the end of the guardrail you may begin to walk down the mountain for about 0.2 mile toward the sound of the waterfall (to your right).
4. Follow the sound of the falls. If you come up on Oil Camp Creek you are upstream of the falls. Keep right and follow the creek downstream to Misty Falls.
