Jones Gap Falls in Greenville County flows over a 50-foot staircase of stones. Like many waterfalls in South Carolina, they are
are at their best right after a good rainstorm.
This waterfall is nestled within Jones Gap State Park, which is part of the Mountain Bridge Wilderness Area.
Shane Norris of Lexington took this picture in November 2007. He writes: “I was backpacking along the Jones Gap Trail and decided to stop and see Jones Gap Falls. It had not rained much so it was not as powerful as usual but it was still a beautiful sight. Due to the late cold weather this year the autumn leaves were all changing colors at once, and the sun was coming down through them in a beautiful manner. After climbing to the top of the falls I descended and snapped some quick shots before we moved on. It truly was a beautiful display of the natural beauty of South Carolina.”
