Squirrel Gap Trail
At A Glance
7.5 mi one-way
Tread Condition: Moderately Rough
Blaze Color: Blue
Trail Number: 147
This is a long, backcountry trail. It's purpose-built trail that doesn't follow any logging roads - a rarity in Pisgah. From where this trail leaves the Bradley Creek Trail, it follows an easy grade to the old Mullinax homeplace where there is a grassy opening and remains of the house foundation. From here it becomes a side slope trail, continuing through beautiful upper hardwood forests. Limited views are available in the winter. The trail winds in and out of several gaps, such as Mullinax Gap, Laurel Gap, Horse Cove Gap and Squirrel Gap. The trail finally descends to Wolf Ford where it intersects with the South Mills River Trail (#133).
Intersects Mullinax, Laurel Creek, Poundingmill, Cantrell Creek, and South Mills River trails, making for some great loop options.
