Mountain Biking Cheraw State Park Mountain Bike Trail

****   Add a review
#41 of 115 mountain bike trails in South Carolina
#2,544 in the world

This trail is a great example of what South Carolina has to offer. The trail uses every feature possible. The trail is almost completely singletrack except for the few fire road connectors. The first mile or two is weaving singletrack with a few short hills - really fast and winding. The scenery will change as you enter different areas from sandy and lots of tightly spaced pine trees to packed sandy, loamy dirt. The flow of the trail is smooth so you never really lose momentum. The deeper you go in to the woods, the more the terrain switches. Up through mile 7, the terrain is up, down, winding - but just fun to ride. The last three miles comes after you leave the small playground at the back corner of the property. You'll know this because the trail seems to follow the road back to the trailhead. This is one of the those trails where its best to ride AFTER a rain. The first two times I went was after a wet spell and the sand was packed and great to ride. Yesterday was the opposite. Some locals told me they haven't had much rain, so the trail was extremely dry which meant the sand was incredibly loose. There were many corners where trying to manuever at speed was impossible without a tire digging in, washing out and flopping a rider on his head. That still didn't deter me from having a great time, though.
