Lost Creek - TRAIL

As of Feb.11th this trail is still under construction but 3.5 miles are ridable. All single track. This is completley different from all the other trails at Harbison. Lots of turns, dips, and fun singletrack.

Rode this trail for the first time the other day, kinda of technical but nothing very difficult. It's nice to have so many routes that you can take so your rides can be varied. Look foward to riding it again. Slower than the other trails and it does not have the loose stone on it like some of the other trail have. The climbs were shorter the other trails.

Customer Service

It's a loop, follow the signs.

Harbison   Cross Country Rider [Mar 13, 2005]

Lost Creek Trail is in Harbison Forest in Columbia. The trail is only about 3 years old. In the last year it has been markedly improved by installation of small bridges, etc. It is quite technical, but is rideable by most riders. Occasional riders will find it very difficult. It is a 5 mile loop with many whoop-te-dos. It's closed now because of wet weather but is usually open.

Customer Service

I prefer counter-claockwise.

this trail is totally fun.. so much different then the other trails at harbison.. tight and twisty, just a really fun ride. i recommend riding it counter-clockwise. its fun either way really. goin clockwise you'll hit the better downhills by far... but counter-clockwise just flows so much better! just dont ride this trail after it rains please. Pretty Please!!!!! i think they should close the harbison trails this winter!!!! they will be destroyed!!!!

I rode the lost creek twice this week when I was in the area. The trail was a little muddy but it was a great ride. It has several short decents and climbs that wide through what looks to be a old creek bed. I look forward to riding the trail when its dry. All that being said its the best trail I have ridden in this area. The new Spiderwoman trail a Harbison will be good when its through. The phase 1 is a pretty technical ride.

Customer Service

Start at parking lot in Harbison State park. Follow trail at end of parking lot all the way until it splits 3 ways go left and cross road " be carful cars are flying down that road" Trail head is on the other side. I have always rode the trail counter clockwise I don't think it will make a huge difference good ride either way.

Best trail in Harbison. This trail cant hold a candle to most trails in and around Asheville, NC, but a huge improvement over the other trails in Harbison. Not worth a road trip or anything but if you live in the area a nice place to ride when you dont have the time or $$$ to go somewhere else.

This is going to be the best over all trail at Harbison. This trail is a mix between the rest of the stuff at Harbison and Newberry - very fun. I always that there was room for expansion at Harbison, and I am stoked that people are going forward with it. If anyone has some info on the New Paradigm trail, I would be much appreciative - e-mail me with beta - don't post it here.

Best trail at Harbison. True singletrack in a land of little singletrack. Overall very well laid out from a "fun to ride" view. Will need some work as the traffic picks up and the winter rain come down on some of the steeper sections. Great job by the people that took the time to build this and great job by the SC Forestry Commission for expanding the trails to meet the needs of local riders seeking a narrow and challenging trail.

Customer Service

I rode it counter clockwise and it was good.

Parked at the top of Harbison and took the west firebreak. At the first trail juction on west firebreak took a left over the paved road starting Lost Creek. This trail is all single track with some good technical dips and tight turns. First time I rode this trail was almost one year ago in a beautiful hardwood and longleaf pine forest. The harvest of trees because of the pine beetle has done a lot of damage to the trail. On my ride today the wind was up and leaves blowing, stopping on a ridge looking down I counted ten deer jumping a creek climbing up and crossing over the next ridge. They are a few ditches were mud/water is standing. Be carful-done a endover in the mud - not knowing it sucked in half of my front tire. With a little work (since deforestation) the trail could be back in excellent shape in no time. Lost Creek is a capital single track ride.

Customer Service

I've always done it counter clockwise-but next time clockwise; the ride may even flow better.

Excellent single track, fast downhills with good short climbs. At this time of year the ridge areas have some great views. Watched 12 deer cross a creek go up the next ridge and over..wildlife abundant. To start the ride park at the top of Harbison hit the west fire break,first trail crossing take a right to the paved road and Lost Creek starts. Six to seven miles of sweet single track. Do the loop turn around and do it the other direction.

Customer Service

Counter clock wise then clock wise

Trails are sevrely damaged. So much muck,downed trees, and mud that I bailed out after four miles. To make things worst, the mud stank like sewer.

It was the worst trail I ridden in months. Sorry, but it only deserves 1 tire. Now if it were fixed, it would be a 3 tire trail.
