The Jones Gap State Park is part of the Mountain Bridge Wilderness Area, which consists of 11,000 acres of natural woodlands and mountains along the Blue Ridge Escarpment. Within the park you can find over 400 plant species and experience the natural beauty of a river flowing through rocky valleys.
Visitors to the park enjoy picnics, hiking, camping, and fishing. The Middle Saluda River is especially popular with fishermen because its cold, clear water supports a large trout population. The park also features an environmental learning center with exhibits and a lab where students can study nature.
The Jones Gap Trail was originally operated as a toll road known as the Solomon Jones Road during the 20th century. You will find campsites off this trail which are set along the water and have fire pits.
