Finding where to enter or start the trail was a little tough, but might be because it was my first time at the park. I suggest finding somewhere to park and follow the road until you see a (bike trail) marker.

Only rode about half the loop but the trail seemed well maintained. Very smooth (except for some roots) and looked to be regularly ridden. It was more technical than fast but there are a few areas to pick up some speed. It's a tight ride with a lot of ups and downs.

It is a definite ride if your in the area. Have fun and remember to stay safe.

Here's a trail that has seen better days. The same huge trees that were down a year ago are still down. As a taller rider, I caught a lot of brush head-height throughout the loop. The trail is getting reclaimed by nature; it doesn't appear to get much use beyond the first mile or two from the parking lot. I won't be back until I hear things have markedly improved.

Just hit this one up on a nice, dry saturday afternoon. Trail was nice. Technical and windy, yes. Marked all that well, no. You can get a bit confused if your trying to follow a certain route. It is pretty tight in a lot of corners (busted my @$$ when a tree caught my foot). About 4 or 5 downed trees but they were big-uns so I don't want to sound negative for those who actually take the time to maintain it. I will ride it again when I get burned out on Harbison again...

I rode this for the first time. I am a true weekend warrior, and I would say this trail is not really technical. A few rocks, roots, and whoop-de-do's, but that's it. And it is REALLY twisty with many sections that double back almost right on top of the previous section. It is reasonably well marked, but needs better marking to let you know where you are along the trail. All that said, it is in a beautiful section of woods, surprising since it is surrounded by a lot of treeless spaces. I'd ride it again.

I ride this trail often & it had several trees down last month but I rode 12/26 & 12/27 & a great deal of maintenance had been done in that time. I just wanted to say thank you to who ever put in the effort to rake & cut downed trees. Your work does not go unnoticed or unappreciated.

I was going to rate it a 3, but decided I need to give the trail more of a chance during another season. First off, in late October there are LOTS of pine needles on the trail so that limited my speed--bummer, because I could see how it would be fun to go faster. Other than the one creek crossing sort of near the beginning of the trail, I wouldn't really call this 'technical'. A few small rock gardens but not hard at all. The short, steep climbs weren't really HARD to get up, but they annoyed me because they just pop up and suck up your speed. Climbs are not long enough to be a real aerobic climb, and they aren't steep/rocky/rooty enough to be hard... they're just there. Other than that, it's very twisty and very tight. I think there is one 'drop off' which is about a foot or so.

Rode this trail for the second time on Saturday. Didn't seem as technical as it was in October.

There were a number of downed trees and overgrown vegetation, but overall the trail wasn't in too bad of shape.

5 times in the middle of the woods I came to an intersection with no idea where to turn, ya it's free to ride here but for a few dollars they could at least spray markings on the trees. Good aerobic ride but Spiderwoman II and Lost Creek Trail in Harbison have made this trail obsolete.

prolly the best trail in SC. Awesome trail compared to other trails in area. I've wrecked ALOT on this trail. Nice to find a trail in SC that will punish me when i get to cocky. Some really technical parts, and short intense uphills. Bridges get REALLY slick in the rain (no screens, or grip tape on wood). An all around good trail.
