A scenic trail through forest and along the Saluda River on the Blue Ridge Escarpment.

Start on the Jones Gap Trail (blue), which will lead you alongside the Saluda River. After 2.5 miles, take the Old Springs Branch Trail (orange) to loop back to the lot.

For a challenging, more strenuous hike, with great views of the Gap, check out Rim of the Gap Trail. It is not advised to take children or dogs on this trail.

Hike the Jones Gap Loop Reviews

Fun place to go get lost in the wilderness. Great workout. Really gets the heart rate up. Beautiful views.

This trail was definitely more on the difficult side, but I went with a couple of friends and we got through it pretty quickly. All 3 of us had a lot of fun and there are some great photography opportunities!
