Squirrel Gap Trail #147
7.5 mi - Moderate - 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 upper hardwood forests. 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). Only some parts of this trail are open to horses, so watch for trail signs, which state which uses are allowed. There are several trails which intersect this one, and many opportunities for longer hikes and rides.
Approximate Elevation Change: 900 feet
