Kings Gap Environmental Education Center Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Kings Gap is really two parks in one. Topography is the reason why. It straddles South Mountain, which rises 700 to 1,400 feet above sea level. The forests at its upper and lower reaches are distinct.
The woods in the lower elevations are full of spring seeps, vernal pools, and small natural ponds. Those wet spots sustain everything from wood frogs to spotted salamanders. It’s here, among red and white oaks and tulips, that you might see Baltimore orioles, scarlet tanagers, and vireos."
