A series of loops through a thickly forested area provide a great hiking or mountain bike experience for all levels of hikers and riders. A series of loops through a thickly forested area provide a great hiking or mountain bike experience for all levels of hikers and riders. You can get a feel of the mountains where some of the higher elevations provide panoramic views and the thick vegetation provides a home for many birds and animals. Although it is hilly, you arent going to find many climbs that require a lot of effort or dismounts. For experienced riders, there are many sections where you have a choice of just rolling through, or going to one side to jump, and sections of ripples where you can also roll through or get air between them. The Great Wall offers a more of a challenge for experienced riders and may be difficult for beginners in places. Do NOT ride or walk around areas where the trail bed has been stabilized by rock. After heavy rain sections may be closed. From: http://www.sctrails.net/Trails/alltrails/MountainBike/FATS.html

Was only able to ride on one trail but it was great! Nice downhills, not too technical. Some nice windy sections to keep you on your toes. Nice scenery and even deer. Highly recommend.

The family and I loved the trail. We took the dogs out with us and we all had a great hike going around Deep Step. Will have to check the other trails later on.
