This is a 4.6 mile out and back hike on the Bartram Trail. Follow Highway 64 West toward Franklin for 4.6 miles. Just beyond the entrance for Cliffside Lake, turn left onto Turtle Pond Road. Then, go 1.1 miles to an intersection and continue right onto Dendy Orchard Road (SR1678) for 1.4 miles which will turn into a steep dirt road. When you reach the top of the hill, turn left on Jones Gap Road. The Bartram Trail sign will indicate this road. Continue for 2 miles to the parking area at the top of the gap. Park here. An old roadbed leads to the right to a wildlife management field. At the far end of the field to the right, yellow blazes will mark the Bartram Trail. To the left, blue blazes mark the Jones Knob Spur Trail. Follow the yellow blaze to the right to the Bartram Trail. The trail circles around the right of Jones Knob then descends to Whiterock Gap. A spur trail .7 miles past the gap goes to the left to Whiterock Mountain. Take this trail and head past the top of the mountain to the rock face at the far side.
