Cedar Falls Park is part of the Greenville County Recreational system. It’s about halfway between Greenville and Greenwood in the upstate region of South Carolina. There is a park, a fenced play area, and an open field, but the main attraction is the broken breakwater falls. You can park at the main entrance or drive directly to the falls.
There is an extensive—but unmarked—trail system in the park. You can walk for several miles along the shoreline and in the woods, but you should print a map to find your way around and to stay off of private property. The section from the parking lot to the falls is paved and handicap accessible.
This is a great place to walk your dogs or let your kids wear themselves out. Sadly, the signage cautions that swimming is not allowed. I’ve never understood this. What’s the point of a waterfront park if you can’t get in the water? I like to think that the warning is purely for liability and it’s not enforced, but I still think it’s a buzzkill.
