Rainbow Falls

Rainbow Falls drops 100 feet over steep walls streaked with black and tan from the alternating layers of amphibolite gneiss, granitic gneiss, and mica schist. In the spring, azalea, meadow rue, and Solomon's plume envelope many of the boulders. Reaching Rainbow Falls is a very strenuous five-mile round-trip hike. Departing Jones Gap, travel approximately .75 miles along the blue blazed Jones Gap Trail, then veer to the right onto the red blazed Rainbow Falls Trail. From here, climb approximately 1,000 feet over a distance of 1.6 miles to the base of Rainbow Falls. After relaxing at the base of the falls, return to Jones Gap along the trails you traveled, gazing upon the amazing vistas of the Jones Gap valley that open up as you descend. Rainbow Falls is located on YMCA Camp Greenville property.
