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.
