Mountain Biking Jorge F. Arango Trail

#19 of 115 mountain bike trails in South Carolina

Easy - Moderate. I rode this for the first time early on a Sunday morning. Gates were open at 7:45, and there was not a soul around. The trail head info board says to ride clockwise in even months and counter in odd months. Clockwise, it was a moderate climb to begin but not too bad. It goes up the ridge into hardwoods for about 2.5 miles before heading back down. It's probably a steeper climbing riding the loop counter-clockwise. No views that I saw but lots of still quiet woods.
This is a newly constructed trail, and you can tell as there are signs of new digging and trail sculpting etc. Hat's off to the trail builders. You can always tell when a trail is built by people who know what they are doing. It's all flowing lines and rolling bumps. Berms are in corners and roots have been avoided when possible. Pure Bliss! My only gripe...it's too short! Some articles I read claimed 6 miles, but my gadget logged 4.7 miles. I did it in a leisurely 39 minutes.

Getting there
From Greenville, follow US-276 N, merge onto US-25 N in Travelers Rest. Go 11 miles and exit onto SC-11 S. Turn left onto SC-11. Go 1 mile or so and turn right when you see the sign for Pleasant Ridge Park. Park in the small parking lot. Note that the trail runs clockwise on even months and vice versa on odd months.
