Dally Gap was hard to find with no signage other than that for the Jacks River Traihead.  Once you get on the trail this is an extremely pleasant and fairly easy hike.  Many reliable water sources as much of it parallels the South Fork Trail of the Jacks River.  Cross through the old Watkins homestead and finish at Double Hogpen Gap where the Walker family had a homestead and cleared the land.  It is still clear today with lots of bear activity.
