Wet Camp Gap Trail

A favorite blueberry-picking destination, the well-established trail takes about 30 minutes each way.

Wet Camp Gap is a long, grassy gap in Rich Mountain. The 1.33-mile hike from the parking area to the Gap is an easy one with only a 60-foot elevation change along the way. Hikers may want to extend their trips a half-mile west to Gage Bald. One of several peaks over 5,500 feet on Rich Mountain ridge, Gage offers a view down Caney Fork Valley toward Cullowhee.
