Mountain Biking Killer Three Loop
#24 of 114 mountain bike trails in South Carolina
Located on Manchester State Forest in Sumter county, in an outlying area of the sandhills, this trail is characterized as rolling with a sandy bottom and many creeks. This single track ride can also be technical in some areas and offers a series of whoop-de-doos. A local bicycling club uses this loop for races in the beginning of each year. The forest has a mixture of pine and hardwoods, along with draping Spanish moss. In the spring, you will find an abundance of dogwood, Magnolia and azalea dotting the forest, as well as red fox, deer, and wild turkey. This trail is mostly flat with a few short climbs and descents. The sand, leaves, and pine straw makes these climbs fairly tough. A very fun track to ride.

"From the junction of Hwy 378 and Hwy 261 S, 28 miles from Columbia, 16 miles from Sumter, travel ten miles south on Hwy 261 to County Road 63 (Poinsett Road), turn right (west), travel one mile to parking area on the left. The parking area has a sometimes blank sign and little else. The trail starts near the paved road heading left when facing the road. The trail is marked with blue bike signs. If you follow the road to the end you'll be at Poinsett State Park, you've gone too far! But there is some great camping there. Information: Manchester State Forest, 6740 Headquarters Rd.
