Today's hike was near Walhalla, SC at Yellow Branch Falls Trail followed by nearby Stumphouse Tunnel Park and Issaqueena Falls and the Blueridge Railroad Trail..
HIKERS - Mike Bell, Jenny Bell, John Bellamy, June Bellamy, Phil Brownrigg, Joe Collins, Greta Driggers, Bob Magee, Dick Metzgar, Tony Presley, Vic Robson and Sandy Robson.
TRAIL INFORMATION - Our first trail today was Yellow Branch Falls Trail. Unfortunately, we had to cut the hike short because of recent heavy rainfall had the creeks overflowing and the trail was impassable without wading deep water. Next, we hiked at nearby Stumphouse Tunnel Park. We walked in the tunnel and then down to Issaqueena Falls and finally the Blueridge Railroad Trail.
We rate the hike mostly easy but very beautiful! If you do all of the trails you will have around 5 or 6 miles.
Directions: From Walhalla SC, take Hwy. 28 north for about 7 miles and look for the Yellow Branch Falls sign and turn left into the parking lot. Stumphouse Park is across the highway just beyond the Yellow Branch Sign turn right.
Another great day for a hike! Cloudy and a light mist and cool with temperatures ranging from 55-60 degrees F.
BIRDS IDENTIFIED: White-breasted Nuthatch, Crow, Blue Jay.
