“Steep, gravel, forest road, allowing access to Jocassee Gorges from the south.”— Timothy Parrish
Electric Mountain Bikes Allowed
Area is open to hunting during hunting season. Wearing orange is required, but it is advised to avoid this area entirely during this time.
Bicycles are permitted on all roads, unless otherwise posted.
This road is rated black due to the gravel, lack of grip, and sketchy high-speed descents. The road surface is mainly large gravel (2-4 inches in diameter) over loose sand. It is very difficult at times to get grip on the climbs. On the descents, the looseness of this surface can make it difficult to control your bike, often washing out in the corners. Heavy erosion may be present after seasonal wet weather. The roads generally get resurfaced every 1-2 years, unless heavy erosion makes sections impassable.
A cyclocross bike is not recommended for this area, and even a hardtail may be difficult to ride in some sections.
