A three loop trail system with some challenging root sections that run along scenic Steele Creek.

Vinnie Connors

Overview

Usually closes for 24 hours after rain. Call 803-547-1019 for trail status.
A multi-directional trail system comprised of three short loops featuring a few challenging rooty sections, some short downhill sections with natural flow, and some scenic spots alongside Steele Creek.

Need to Know

Mountain bikers must either be members of the Anne Springs Close Greenway or pay the daily use fee of $5 at the trailhead kiosk. This trail has a few narrow bridges and bikers with wide bars may have some clearance issues.

Description

Anne Springs Close Greenway consists of three loops of varied difficulty. The trail starts at the kiosk in the main parking area on East School Loop and travels east through a tunnel under Route 460 where Sugar Loop branches off School Loop on the right.

Sugar Loop continues for almost three miles where it meets back up with east School Loop and continues north. After another mile the trail turns right at the intersection of East and West School Loop, travels under Route 460 again and meets up with Prairie Loop. Prairie Loop continues for two miles and connects back to itself near the 460 underpass near the east and west School Loop intersection. The trail takes another right turn at this intersection and travels for about two miles back to the start of the trail at the kiosk.

This is my "go to trail" and the closest to my house with any real challenges. Some may say too many roots but I say the roots just give it a litle more character and besides we do live in the southeast. What do you expect, a graded gravel path? It is a great place to ride! Tip; buy a membership and ride often!! Jun 9, 2016

Perfect trail for an intermediate level ride. Small down hill and uphill sections, sharp turns, tunnels, and challenging roots all throughout. Feb 18, 2017
The Greenway is undergoing some changes: we are losing Sugar Loop but adding some more miles of new professionally made machine trails. Some of the best challenges have disappeared but word is the new sections will be very challenging so only time will tell. This is still a great trail system with more land opportunities to expand many more miles of trail. Come out to check it out. Apr 26, 2017
