Tracing the path to beauty involves a bottom to top examination. In Upstate South Carolina, Yellow Branch Falls draws frequent visitors. Some arrive at the right time, while others complain that the waterfalls is nothing more than a trickle.
After hiking about 1.5 miles along a trail that crosses creeks, winds through forests and hugs ledges, the waterfalls is found at the base of a hill. Vehicle-size rocks create playground-like challenges to the base of the falls. Once there, it's like having a front-row seat to a rock concert. The falls cascades over the edge and then repeats the cascade multiple times before splashing at your feet. If you go, plan carefully. Make the trek after periods of normal to above-normal rainfall.
