Rocky Gap-Willis Knob Horse Trail
The Rocky gap trail in South Carolina and the Willis Knob Trail combine to offer some of the most scenic horseback riding in the Southern Blue Ridge mountains. Winding across deeply dissected ridges, the trails descend into the beautiful Chattooga Wild and Scenic River corridor. The rocky Gap has several loops, while the Willis Knob Trail is designed as one large continuous loop. Each Trail crosses several gravel roads.
The Whetstone Horse Camp in South Carolina serves as a base camp for many users of both trails. There is a fee for the Whetstone Horse Camp.
Directions: From Walhalla go north 6 miles on State highway 28. Turn left onto Whetstone Road for about 5 miles. Go straight at the four-way stop and drive about 1.5 miles. The pavement will end and a gravel road will begin. The day-use parking area and trail head are on the right.
