Jones Gap State Park Reviews
Easily one of the most beautiful places you will see in South Carolina, this park, with a roaring Saluda River going through the middle of it is one of my favorites. Rainbow falls - 100ft waterfall..... more »
We've done this hike before and enjoyed it. Today, we drove 25 miles to get there after seeing the trail was open. Missed the parking requirement. Seems a bit more publicity is needed to tell... more »
Great state park at the base of the Blue Wall where the Piedmont of South Carolina rises abruptly to the Southern Appalachian Mountains. The climb to Rainbow Falls is beautiful in the Autumn and Winter. But also lovely all year. It is short, but really steep.
A very fun hiking experience. A more of a remote location would be a great way to describe! Bring camping gear and enjoy a peaceful time throughout beautiful trails through the woods & wilderness. You can fish & find that the campsites are neatly oriented. Such a great place and the drive is always a pleasure!
