Starting from the Indian Springs Recreation Area, most of this moderately difficult loop (2.3 miles) is on Dalton Road, which is a well maintained gravel and clay road, but several long climbs and two extremely steep descents on a single track provide some technical challenge and provide a good workout.

You can increase the length of your ride by riding the Issaqueena Lake, or Figure Eight at Holly Springs Rides in the same area.

Insect repellent is recommended during warm months. Be aware this is a multi-use trail and shared by hikers, bikers, and horses.

This Clemson Experimental Forest trail is maintained with the help of the Greater Clemson Mountain Bikers Club.

Hours: Dawn to dusk

Directions:

From the junction of US 123 and SC 133 in Clemson: Drive north on SC 133 for 3.4 miles and turn left. Continue on SC 133 and turn left onto Old Six Mile Hwy. There are several parking areas on the right after you turn into Issaqueena Forest on Issaqueena Lake Road.
