To complete this difficult hike, we highly recommend bringing electrolytes, lots of snacks, at least 3 L of water, and all of your 10 essentials. In addition, we recommend water shoes for the stream crossings. We will have to wade (up to knee deep) through a few. You may also want to bring a portable phone charger, especially if you plan to snap a lot of photos.



Rim the Gap Loop consists of sections of Frank Coggins Loop, Coldspring Branch Trail, and the Jones Gap Trail. It also includes Rim the Gap Trail and Coldspring Connector.

Coldspring Connector: https://www.sctrails.net/trails/trail/coldspring-connector-7



This is not an easy or beginner hike. This loop is one of the most difficult in the state and will feature:

Several stream crossings

A rope bridge

Rock Scrambling

Crawling through narrow spaces

Steep drop-offs

Lots of breathtaking views

An amazing sense of accomplishment!!



We’ll be hiking as a group, and nobody will be left behind or forgotten. On this hike, it will be particularly important that everyone hikes together, at the pace of the slowest hiker. We will take a lot of breaks in order to maintain our stamina throughout the hike. This hike is not for anyone unable to sustain strenuous activity for long periods or who has mobility limitations.



Due to the difficulty of this trail, this hike is limited to 12 participants. You MUST register on the Eventbrite link to confirm your spot. You will also be asked to provide an emergency contact (just in case).
