This is a famous Issaqueena trail, with short, tough climbs and tight turns. There are many scenic views of Lake Hartwell along this trail, as well as nice spots to catch a quick breather, too.

This trail is a moderately difficult trail and should not be run for the first time alone, as it is certainly not a beginner trail. There are many obstacles and elevation changes however nothing too extreme. Lake Hartwell provides a great visual for approximately 1 mile of this trail. There are a couple of nice water’s edge views which make for great “breather” locations. 

The Double Fork Trail is 100% forest trails and it would not be recommended to recreationally run/hike/bike these trails after a hard rain. As previously mentioned, there are many elevation changes and after rain storms water accumulates in the low spots. If running or biking, it is important to keep your eye on the trail because there are many sharp turns, roots and other obstacles which can cause injury. The trail ends on the same fire road that it begins on.

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