guignard clay quarry loop trail

It was a very interesting hike for us and my four sons really enjoyed it. We even saw two alligators at two different spots sunning themselves! But with all the recent rain, the trail was extremely muddy and in many places, the trail was a creek itself. The trail markers were very helpful to keep us on track when we had to go around large areas of water that made the trail impassable. We also found raccoon and deer tracks in many places which was fun for my kids.

Short hike and really beautiful views. I was surprised of all the times that I've passed this place and never checked it out. It would be a little tricky for smaller children as some of the paths are quite narrow.

rim of gap very technical trail.. you have to love hiking to enjoy. lots of water falls narrow trails and rock faces.. well worth the time.. there where also lots of ladders to climb slippery rocks and roots all over the place.. also lots of cliff edges with drops offs over 100' straight down.. once pasted rim of gap it was all down hill and we made good time back to jones gap parking lot.. would not recommend trail to children or pets.. brought my dog and she slide down the face of 2 rocks landing 8 ft below unharmed. but there where plenty of places where that could have been fatal. be careful when you hike this one and take a friend..

Sulphur Springs Trail

My family and I hiked this trail not knowing it's rated a 9 out of 10 on the strenuous scale... 10 being the hardest. Most of it is not too bad but there is approx a 1/4-1/2 mile of it that is pretty challenging if you are not used to hiking. Great hike! Even my 3 yr old hiked all 3.5 miles of it! There is an old dam on the trail and various streams and waterfalls on the trail.

My husband and I have done this trail several times. This is one of our favorites. It's a little strenuous and you'll definitely be doing some work to get to the top; however, it's definitely worth the climb! Go after a good but of rainfall and the falls will be much bigger!

Rainbow falls is a terrific trail for a day hike. It's short, but rigorous at some points. It features a lot of stone stairs and plenty of places to stop and take a rest. The trail is kept in good condition besides some fallen trees that look fresh. I would definitely suggest this for anyone looking for a challenging but enjoyable hike. By the time you make it to the falls the mist coming off of them gives a good way to cool down. And with plenty of large rocks around you could even take a nap looking up at the falling water.
A great hike.
Go check it out.

great area to hike or bike. hiked around 5 miles on a very nice trail. the united states largest hickory tree is located here. we didnt see a single person the whole day out. we hiked around 6 miles on a cold day with our kids. had an awesome day. be weary of wild hogs. we ran into an entire pack of them. definitely a tense moment. but they left us alone.

It's a nice walk through the woods. There are a couple bridges. I got lost because the trail mixes with the Swamp Fox Trail, and I tried to take them both. I ended up walking along the roadside (under construction area). Overall it was an alright walk, hardly any kind of hike.

Stumphouse Tunnel is on the same property and fun for kids to walk around in. Bring a flashlight. Isaqueena Falls are beautiful. The descent down is steep, but worth it. If you don't want to climb, their is a viewing platform too.
