Overview

This route has some really fun downhill and a few somewhat flowy sections. This makes for a nice quick ride after work.

Description

From the Morris Loop Trailhead on Morris Hunt Drive, head north on Morris Loop along a fairly smooth trail that leads to Birkshire Loop - Morris Loop Connector, which has a rope swing about halfway through. Then you'll cross Birkshire Heights to get to the Birkshire Loop; take the right side of the split. At the beginning of the trail, there are two massive hills you may need to walk up; overall the trail is smooth and flowy with many ups and downs. Once you get to the top, take the Powerline Trail - Birkshire Loop Connector which splits off to the right.

Cross Birkshire Heights again and continue on the Powerline Trail - Birkshire Loop Connector, which is relatively flat once you get into it. At the end, there is another hill that might pose a challenge. Once you get to the intersection at the top, continue past the Powerline Trail onto the Blue Heron Trail - Powerline Trail Connector, which is a blast to ride down. When you get to the end of Blue Heron Trail - Powerline Trail Connector turn right onto the Blue Heron Trail.

At the end of the Blue Heron Trail, turn left onto the McBride Hwy Trail and continue all the way up until you reach Allison Park. Exit the park and take a right onto Founders Street, a right on Elis Way, then a left onto Settlers Heights Dr. and continue until you see a trailhead to the right. This will drop you onto Stratford Run Drive - McBride Highway Connector which is another downhill wonder. Once you reach the end of Stratford Run Drive - McBride Highway Connector take a left onto Powerline Trail Connector and continue over Morris Hunt Drive until you reach the Wayback Trail. Take a right and go around the bend and the next trail to your right will be Morris Loop where you began.

This place is a joke. Trails are extremely poorly built, in many cases at or near the fall line of the landscape which makes for endlessly eroded trail surfaces. Add to that sketchy/confusing navigation and there will be no return trips. It's what one should expect for a Fort Mill attempt at trail building. Do yourself a favor and detour to Anne Springs.
