A fun short loop along the Savannah.

Overview

Features: -none- [Add/Remove]

Description [Suggest Changes]

The trail is located on a small strip of land between the canal tow path and the Savannah River. To find the main trail entrance, follow the fence between the railroad tracks and the pumping station, stay on the railroad side of the fence, there is a well worn path here. You wont go very far before you see an entrance into the woods on your left. Ride down the stairs, and you're at the trail.

The trail itself is short, but very tight and twisty. This is a great trail to work on your bike handling skills. This trail has no long climbs, but does have some steep short ones which are usually full of roots and will test your skills.

The trail is directional based on the day of the month. Even days are counter-clockwise, odd days are clockwise. This is a very popular trail, and it's important to ride in the correct direction to avoid a head-on collision with a runner or another rider. The trail is so twisty you'll be right on top of someone before you see them.

There's several other small sections of trail along the towpath, so do some exploring and see what all you can find!

What a great loop! I really enjoyed it. The trees provide great shelter from the heat. Mostly flowy with some techy sections. Great fun! 2.4mi
