Great trail for beginners. Took a newbie buddy out and he enjoyed it a lot. Started at the 283 trailhead and went to Key Bridge. Varied terrain with very few significant elevation changes. Some technical stuff but nothing like other trails in the area. One note, if spiders freak you out, let someone else lead! The trails in this area are covered in brown orb spiders and if you are the first one through the trail that day, you will be web covered! They don't appear to bite though, at least the several hundred I've run into don't!

Customer Service

Either way is easy. Connects with Turkey Creek Trail if you are feeling frisky and want a long ride.

I did this trail for the first time on Labor Day 2004, in a mild rain. It was a great ride. We started at the top of the trail, at the parking lot on 283 and went approximately 3 miles into Turkey Creek after ending Wine Creek. I definitely recommend this trail. The bottom of the trail is very fast - not as fast as Bartram Lake trail, but still quite fast. The top of the trail near the parking lot can be a bit technical and was intimidating for me (just started this mountain biking thing 2 months ago). Still, I think I'll probably be able to fly over them soon once I get comfortable with the new bike. This trail is great for beginners to see what some minor technical work is like but with a majority of the trail still easily rideable for newbies. As of Labor Day 2004 it was recently cleared and is a blast to ride.

Take 28 (Fury's Ferry) up to 283, hang a right and it's about half a mile past Key Br. Rd. Also, if you hang a right on Key Rd you will hit the spot where wine and Turkey Creek connect.

This trail is awesome. It used to be completely grown over, but the CSRA-SORBA chapter got it open. Contact Tom on how to get in with these guys.

Been to the CSRA are 3 times now and this is my first ride on Wine Creek. Really loved the little rock gardens and such to break up the flat twisty single track. A really fun trail.

Thanks SORBA-CSRA.

I rode the trail on July 28, 2001 and it was in the best condition I have ever seen it in the 10 years I have been riding. Fourteen of the bridges have been repaired and every bridge has been ramped. It is completely mowed and lopped. The mowing is the key to this heavily vegetated trail. The twisty singletrack feels like a bob-sled run at times. There is relatively no climbing and the scenery is absolutely beautiful. This was always a great begginer trail and the new ramps on the bridges and newly benched trail make it more so of one. There are a few hairy little rock sections and a cool creek crossing - but everything is rideable. If it is not too long after 7/28/01 - I'd get in the car now and go ride Wine and Turkey Creek. They are both in excellent shape. Stay for the weekend and ride Baker Creek and Hickory Knob the next day.

In then out from Key Bridge. Can also park on Hwy 283.

Wine Creek is a natural to ride with Turkey Creek. They are really just one linear 12 mile trail. If combined with Modoc, than the day becomes a long one. Even longer is a point to point from Wine Creek to Baker Creek.

I agree with Bill totally about this trail. It is very fast and has some great minor technical areas on it. Minor climbs and super fast level areas. The little rock climbs are excellent and the bridge repairs make it safe to cross even after rain. The creek crossing is a blast and all the rock climbing is just before and after the creek no matter which way you start to ride it. This trail is well worth the trip to ride and is a straight 5 miles in and 5 miles out.

Wine Creek is the come back story of the year. Thanks to a lot of work from SORBA-CSRA this trail went from totally overgrown with all washed out bridges, to new bridges and a refurbished trail that begs to be ridden fast. This trail is truely like a bobsled run in sections. Definately the fastest trail around. The majority is fairly flat and twisty. It contours the creek as well as climbing out and flowing through hardwood and pine forests. It is a pretty surounding for a trail.
Check out SORBA-CSRA on their website, join up, and then enjoy the great work!

I swear there is a little green man pushing you the whole way - in both directions! This trail is simply fun to ride. It is the best trail to take a first timer - they may have to walk a few technical sections. Overall, this trail is perhaps the finest of the lot in the McCormick area. It is hard to beat and can be part of several different all day rides. Would be closed (vegetation overgrowth) if not for the efforts of a strong group of local volunteers (SORBA-CSRA).

I got to ride this trail after having moved to Savannah Ga. We did a Sunday rode trip.

This trail rocks and is in great shape. Fast with short quick climbs, great fast straights, and excellent challenging semi-technical areas. Both the guys, neither of whom are online, were totally thrilled with the trail. After having ridden only the flat trails in Savannah Ga it totally kicked their butts and they luved every mile of it. This trail is well worth the trip to ride. You guys are lucky to have all the fine trails so close to Augusta.
