Mountain Biking Forks Area Trail System (FATS)

*****   Add a review
#1 of 115 mountain bike trails in South Carolina
#51 in the world

This trail system is an epic addition to the Sumter National Forest area trails. Amazing singletrack with great flow, tons of jumps, and fast terrain. Minimal climbing makes this a good trail for beginners while experts can test their cornering and jumping skills. Four loops at this time range in length from 5-8 miles each. Worth the drive from just about anywhere, you'll want to ride every inch of trail before you leave! Thanks SORBA!
