The next day after we broke down camp we decided to squeeze in two more drive-up falls before we hit the road. The first was Whitewater Falls which was only about 40 minutes west of Table Rock. This is the big daddy of the area. In total it is over 800’ tall and crosses the state line between North Carolina and South Carolina. The North Carolina part is 411’ tall making it the highest waterfall east of the Rocky Mountains. The part in South Carolina drops another 400’. Sadly, just like Raven Cliff Falls, you cannot get very close to the falls so the effect is diminished.
From the parking lot you walk along a basically flat paved trail for about half or one mile to the upper overlook. From there you can go down a flight of steps to the lower overlook which offers a better view.
