Near Taylors, SC area to be specific. I just started getting back into MTB after a long hiatus. When i did ride before it was in a small wooded area that has a few trails, even a small little track, on it. Flash forward to present day, I'm riding the same trails again but looking for something more. Are there any good spots in or around the Taylors, SC area?

Best place is Paris Mountain, right in your back yard. Closed to M Bike in Saturday, $2.00 parking fee; get an annual pass in the park office.

Lets ride paris mtn tomorrow :thumbsup:
With me not doing a lot of cardio for the past couple of years I have lost a lot of my stamina so I will be building that back up for a little while before I hit big trails with others. I will just be left behind, and that wouldn't be good for my self-esteem (ha). It would be killer to get into some group riding though. I think that is a great way to have fun riding. Plus I'm sure there is a certain level of "one-upmanship" that comes out in group riding that I imagine makes you a better rider.

Thanks for all the info so far guys. One trail I have heard of is the Swamp Rabbit Trail, is that any good? Is it just a paved path or are there any good routes that take you off-road?

Swamp Rabbit trail is well worth riding, it's nearly all paved. On the other hand, it would be great for building you up as you get to see some new scenery. Here's an interactive trail map:

Good access parking spots would be the Cleveland St YMCA, off Duncan Chapel Road near Furman, or downtown off 123: http://www.greenvilleopenmap.info/SwampRabbit/index.html?zoom=18&lat=34.84927&lon=-82.40429&layers=B0T

I think I may branch out from my local spots and see what the Swamp Rabbit Trail is all about this weekend. Thanks for all the great info on it.
