A nicely wooded up and down hike along the Saluda River. Be aware that the trails close at 6pm.

Great day for a looonngg hike! Parked in the Mountain Bridge lot. Made the loop counterclockwise but doubt it mattered which way you go. Took the 1.6 mile spur up to Rainbow Falls. Strenuous climb almost like a mini-Table Rock but well worth. The Fall was partially frozen and was a beautiful payoff. My app had the loop at 13 miles, took about 6 1/2 hrs.

Awesome trail! Did this one at night with 40° temp. Was cold and scary but still worth it! unforgettable memories :-)

Take Cold Creek trail in as it will be all downhill. connect with the Jones gap trail then up to the falls. on the way back take the Jones gap trail to Tom Miller.

Great trail but get to the park early otherwise you have to wait for ages due to minimal parking

Hiked five miles in to camp site 011. Had a blast. Parts of the hike are very strenuous; especially in wet conditions. Waterfalls and rapids galore. Highly recommend.
