Description

This is one of four main loop trails in the Fant's Grove Wildlife Management Area, a Clemson University owned property.

This trail is used heavily by equestrians, so be sure to follow trail-use rules: bikers must yield to horses and hikers. Riding with a trail bell is a good idea.

This trail is marked with green-blue triangles nailed to the trees all along the route. The main entrance for this trail is at the Butch Kennedy trailhead found across the road from the T. Ed Garrison Arena directly off Woodburn Road. To access the trail, ride down the grassy hill toward the entrance bridge from the kiosks. At this point, the trail is three trails: Red Square Trail, Green Triangle Trail, and Gray Diamond Trail.

Continue on this trail and up the climb until you cross the first paved street. Once across the street, stay to the right. The Red Square Trail will drop off to the left and you'll remain on the Green Triangle Trail and Gray Diamond Trail for an additional distance. After crossing a second paved road, you'll reach intersection A15. The Green Triangle Trail will continue to the right and the Gray Diamond Trail will continue on to the left. Take a right turn. You'll ride a short distance and at intersection marker A12 you turn left and follow the forest road until it ends at a picnic area. Look for the trail entrance off to the right about 50 feet before the picnic area.

The trail will enter the woods and now turn to singletrack. On this route, you'll ride through a dense, hardwood forest. After a few miles, you'll come out on a gravel road with a swine farm on the right. Follow the gravel road and look for intersection marker A4 on the left to enter back on the trail after a short distance. Continue to follow the trail until it crosses another gravel road. The trail will end at a paved street. You'll ride the street directly ahead back to the trailhead a short distance.

There are not very many roots, rocks, or technical features on this trail. Printed trail maps, courtesy of the local equestrian club, are usually available at the kiosk at the trailhead.
