Prince Cove Falls is a low flow waterfall on a tributary of Mill Creek in SC. The falls is about 15 feet high, and getting to the base isn’t easy. You could do this one as an out and back, but I’m not sure why you would want to since it’s nothing to write home about. Maybe after an inch or two of rain it would be worth it.

From the Mill Creek Road Trailhead at 34.99113, -82.87516, continue walking past the gate. YOou do not want to follow Mill Creek Road which goes off to the left, You want the one on the right that heads up hill. At 0.25 of a mile from the gate, look for a spot to leave the trail on the left to make your way to the falls. There is a huge rock that overlooks the falls, which is easy to spot. Getting to the base is a little trickier, but there is a way that isn’t too bad. When you get there, you will realize you exerted a lot of energy for not much reward.
