Issaqueena Falls

Issaqueena Falls

Stumphouse Tunnel Park
Walhalla, SC

It is an easy 10 minute hike to the base of this beautiful falls, named for an Indian maiden who hid on a ledge of the falls to avoid capture as she fled to warn her English lover of an Indian attack.  A well-maintained trail leads from the parking area to a platform for viewing this 100-foot cascade of Cane Creek.  Nearby is a picnic area and Stumphouse Tunnel, which is 25 feet high, 17 feet wide, and although it was not completed as a railroad tunnel, extends 1,617 feet into the mountain. You can walk a ways into the tunnel, but there may be water and you will need a flashlight to find your way.
