Foothills Trail, Gum Gap Segment is a 24 mile out and back trail located near Cleveland, SC and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round.
Only did the 5 mile segment in Jones Gap Park, but it was very nice and also saw some trail runners. In the beginning the trail is very rocky since it follows closely to the Saluda River. The views of the river are beautiful as well and you can hop down onto larger river rocks and have lunch.
