Mountain Biking The Knot

*****   Add a review
#6 of 115 mountain bike trails in South Carolina
#423 in the world

The Knot features plenty of climbing, incredibly fast descents, and some breathtaking drop-offs overlooking the Poinsett Park Lake and Shank's Creek. The trail was embraced and made possible largely due to the efforts of Park Manager Zabo McCants and members of the Sumter Chain Gang, Midlands SORBA, a special grant from IMBA, and many other volunteers.
