The Gap Creek Project encompasses one of the largest properties in single ownership left unprotected in the SC Mountains. This is a keystone project for connecting over 40,000 acres of mountain lands from Table Rock Watershed to the North Saluda Watershed, known as the Mountain Bridge Wilderness Area. Game species associated with these lands include black bear, wild turkey, bobcat, and even Ruffed grouse. The property harbors an extensive forest system and flowing from them is a series of headwater streams of the Saluda River Basin proving multiple cascades and small waterfalls. Water flowing from Gap Creeks lands will end up in the Saluda Lake, a recreational lake which also supplies the drinking water to the town of Easley, South Carolina. Currently a Wildlife Management Agreement with the SCDNR is held on the land so public hunting is available on properties. Once completed, this property is also expected to have full open access for hiking and other passive recreation available.
