King Creek Falls is a spectacular 75' waterfall and I highly recommend going. If you are on the NC side, come down Hwy 281 south just across the border into SC and take a right at the sign pointing to Hwy 107. At the stop sign take a left on 107, go a few miles (sorry, I didn't get a mileage) and look for Burrell's Ford Road (FR 708) on the right. Go down the gravel road for 2.3 miles and park in the lot on the left. (Spoonauger Falls parking is farther down the road.) The trail begins behind the info board at the entrance to the parking lot, not down the gated road. This is another fairly easy trail and is a beautiful hike through Sumter National Forest. At about 1/2 a mile, the trail crosses King Creek on a bridge, then continues up creek towards the falls. This trail is also part of the white blazed Foothills Trail which splits off at this point. It's less than 1/2 a mile more to the base of the falls. The best views are from the opposite side of the creek, so we had to cross over the rocks and logs.
