"The 3346-acre Jones Gap State Park is located in the 10,000-acre Mountain Bridge Wilderness Area. The park encompasses the Middle Saluda River, designated as South Carolina’s first scenic river.

More than 400 species of flora, including rare and endangered plants, and state record trees are found in the park. The Environmental Education Center offers nature exhibits and a lab area to explore.
