About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

This hike follows the Jones Gap trail along the Middle Saluda River to Jones Gap Falls, then returns the same way.  The terrain is gradually uphill to the falls, with large rocks and stream crossings studding the path the entire way.  Therefore, it is not recommended for our youngest hikers; ages 3.5 and up seem to do well.  Once you reach the falls, there is a good-sized pool for wading, as well as several large rocks to sit and snack on.

I joined Hike it Baby in 2014 when my son was just 2 months old.  A year later, I became an Ambassador for the Greenville, SC branch.  I love raising my kids on the trail and meeting so many like-minded families!
