This is a great half day loop trail. It gives you several different hiking experiences. This trail is great for dogs as it has many water sources that remain constant in the hot summer months. Starting on Bill Kimball is a downhill hike past large cliffs and down switchback. At the gap you hike along the Saluda River. There is a connector to the Jones Gap Trail as well. The Cold Springs trail is a moderate up hill hike that you will feel when you get to the end. There are not any water falls to view, but you also avoid the crowds. Pack a lunch and enjoy it while cooling your feet in the river.
