Hi, I am wanting to move to the Anderson area but my wife doesn't want to unless it is fairly close to the mountains (less than an hour away). Can anyone tell me what mountains and waterfalls are the closest? Thanks!

For access to mountains and waterfalls, you will need to head north into Oconee and Pickens counties. Whitewater Falls is located off SC-130/NC-281, accessible from the North Carolina side. You will have access to the Chatooga River from SC-28 to US-76 along the South Carolina/Georgia state line in Oconee County. For mountains, you have Sassafras Mountain located off US-178 and Table Rock State Park located off SC-11, both in Pickens County.

And if you go a little bit farther there is the Great Smoky Mountain! If you want mountains this is the area for it! Search the forum for Anderson mountains if you haven't already. I'm pretty sure we've talked about them before.

I suppose it depends somewhat on what you define as "mountains." When you travel north from Anderson on Hwy. 28, you're in the foothills by the time you reach Seneca, which is about 45 minutes away from downtown, and you'll be climbing for sure when you get around Walhalla, just another 10 minutes farther.

Waterfalls within about an hour's drive include:

Bull Sluice on US 76, Westminster SC
Carrick Creek Falls in Table Rock State Park, Pickens SC
Chau Ram Falls in Chau Ram County Park, Westminster SC
Hidden Falls in Oconee State Park, Mountain Rest SC
King Creek Falls, Sumter National Forest, Mountain Rest SC
Long Creek Falls, Sumter National Forest, Mountain Rest SC
Licklog & Pigpen Falls, Sumter National Forest, Mountain Rest SC
Laurel Fork Falls, Lake Jocassee, Devil's Fork State Park, Salem SC
