This trail is dedicated to Jorge Francisco Arango. A generous man, awesome mountain biker, dog lover, and best friend to many. His friends and family along with JFA Foundation, SORBA volunteers, and Greenville County built this trail so that others may enjoy his favorite sport and his love for friends and dogs.

The trail begins at the first parking lot off to the right from the main park road. The trail starts across the paved road right next to the small creek. There are two wooden signs that mark the start of the trail.

The trail is mostly smooth-rolling, hard-packed singletrack. It is interspersed with a few rock gardens and contains a few tight off-camber switchbacks.

The trail begins with a slow, steady climb from the lower elevations of the park. It cuts through some tight new growth small-tree forest and gradually goes deeper into the park as the trail climbs the ridge. The highest point of the trail is about 2.5 miles in where the trail is very narrow in some areas and cuts through some very dense forest. In this area, there are a few nice large granite cliffs visible during the fall into the early spring before leaves obscure their view.

The trail then continues along the ridge behind Camp Spearhead, which is visible down to the left. The trail then ends with a slow, steady descent while passing through a fern grove over a short section of trail embedded with small logs. The trail ends abruptly at the main park road, which one must cross to get back to the parking lot.

A little more blocky than my taste but not a bad trail

Got stuck on the mouse track as I heard it called and then saw a guy to follow. He led me to the big loop. Nearly catastrophic endo! 7.8mi
