One of the classics.

Description

No Horses or ATVs
The Brown Wave gets its name because it feels like surfing on a bike. Lots of whoop-de-doos and the least climbing of any loop make it one of the most popular.

Careful at The Dip down by the river. When you see the sign that says DANGER - slow down!

See what "lots of whoop-de-doos" means in this video on YouTube.

Nestled in the Long Cane Ranger District of the Sumter National Forest, FATS is the crown jewel of the CSRA trails, and for good reason. FATS has something for everyone. Very few technical features make FATS a great place to get beginners hooked on the sport, and the excellent flow, pump track like feel, and high speed sections combined with lots of mileage keeps bringing the seasoned riders back for more time and time again.

In 2009 FATS was awarded IMBA Epic status, and in 2010 was the host trail for the annual IMBA World Mountain Bike Summit. The trails have been highlighted in several magazines, including BIKE, Blue Ridge Outdoors, and a series of web articles for Bicycling just to name a few.

FATS consists of six individual loops, each with their own character and feel. There are two parking lots, the South Trailhead is the main parking lot, and the North Trailhead is adjacent to Big Rock and Tower. The southern loops are Brown Wave, Skinny, Great Wall, and Deep Step. Big Rock and Tower make up the northern loops.
