Summary:

If you’re looking for quality, South Carolina mountain bike trails, the park is home to 10 miles of rolling, loop trails that take bikers through oak and pine woodlands.

Loading Trails

From the kiosk near the park office, begin this medium to strenuous, rolling, hiking/biking, two loop dirt trail. You will pass through various habitats of oak and pine woods where some very large trees can be seen, including a poplar that may be the largest in the state. In lush creek-side vegetation, you may see a variety of birds, snakes, an other wildlife. Even if the trail is easy-to-follow, watch for markers and signs to keep you on track where the trail joins forest access roads, and the main park road. Although, not especially technical or strenuous for mountain bikes, the roads provide access around some of the more strenuous sections. 

Go left for the outer or larger loop, which crosses the main road and passes the residence of the Assistant Superintendent, then returns to the main road. You can turn right, cross the bridge, and return to the pavilion, or turn left and ride or hike  the smaller loop. 

Go right and follow Baker Creek for a sort distance. At the main road, turn right and cross the bridge. You can turn left and go back on the outer loop, or turn right and ride or hike  the inner loop.

Restrooms are available at the pavilion/park office. Pets are permitted only on leashes. Insect repellent is recommended during warm months.
