The Deep Gap Spring Trail in Jefferson National Forest is a small 0.3 mile out-and-back hike that leads down to a small pool where a creek ends, called Deep Gap.

This is a good trail to refill water if you're backpacking or hiking with a water filter, but not much else.

You can access this trail from the AT to Mt Rogers Trail and the Virginia Highlands Horse Trail.
