There are about 20 miles of trails here from beginner to intermediate. Trails are well marked and maps are available at parking area. Please consider riding elsewhere if there has been a recent rain, this forest holds water too well. Also, trails are shared with hikers, and some trails are hiking only. Dogs are allowed, and bathrooms are available. Harbison State forest now charges $5.00 a day for bikin' or $25.00 per year for a permit. For more information: Call (803) 896-8800.

Rider questions

Q: Do you have to pay
A: You pay for parking. $5 daily or $25 annually.

Q: Is there any camping available in the park?
A: There are some areas on the north side of the forest along the gravel loop road where scouts occasionally camp. There is also a spot by the canoe landing near the Broad River. I have never camped in HSF but have seen others doing so. Best to contact the rangers office to get the 411.
