Whether you're a hiker, mountain biker or horse lover (stables are available for boarding), the Marrington trails constitute the best multi-use trail system in the lower part of the state. In addition to mountain bikers, dozens of cross-country runners and hikers can be seen on any given afternoon or weekend using the trail system to keep fit.

Marrington Plantation offers a 12-mile perimeter loop that never drops or rises more than 20 feet at once, with the countless v-ditch crossings, sharp curves, and opportunities for jumps and drop-offs keep the ride challenging. Several technical offshoots are scattered along the ride and additional cut-throughs lengthen the total ride opportunity to 17 miles.

Note: Cyclists are required to wear helmets and respect other users of the trail system. Non-Department of Defense personnel using the trail system are required to have a Marrington Patron Pass available at the Outdoor Adventure Center. Pass requires four-week background check (driver's license necessary).

Trails are maintained by the Joint Base Charleston Natural Resources Office with help from the Low Country Fat Tire Freaks. This trail will be closed when conditions are wet.
