About the event

Jones Gap Half Marathon
Jones Gap State Park & River Fall Lodge
Upstate Race Series welcomes you to Jones Gap State Park and the Annual Jones Gap Half Marathon. We are excited to bring back the same great state park with an awesome 13.1 Mile route that views Rainbow Falls and a section of the rim of the gap trail and Little Pinnacle Mountain!
Visitors can find the unforgettable peace and repose of a deep mountain cove at Jones Gap State Park. Trails and 13,000 acres of pristine mountain woodlands join the park with Caesar's Head in what is known as the Mountain Bridge Wilderness Area. The Jones Gap State Park trails allow hikers to traverse between the two parks, as well as connect to a portion of the Foothills Trail and Palmetto Trail South Carolina hikers know and love. This course will showcase two scenic waterfalls, 18 back country campsites, over 60 miles of hiking trails, the scenic Middle Saluda River that runs through the park and over 13,000 acres of wilderness when combined with Caesar's Head to form the Mountain Bridge Wilderness Area.
