I’ve become enamored with the eastern rim of the gorge. For a great day hike with views, a little uphill and nice peaks; I highly recommend the Table Rock Gap Trail.
To arrive at the trailhead, start on Hwy. 181, turn onto Table Rock Road, which will turn into a gravel and FR 210. The Table Rock Gap Trail is clearly marked after driving down the FR for 10 miles.
I hiked from the Gap to Table Rock and a short, .4 mile extension trail to the summit, then hiked to the Chimneys and back. If you have never visited the Chimneys area; it is awe-inspiring.
Total mileage is 5.23 miles.
