Nice trail. The park was closed so we just parked where the pavement ends. It was approximately 5.7 miles. Part were very pretty, but one section looked clear cut and was pretty boring. Saw two mountain bikers on the path.

A few down trees but other than that the trail is in decent shape. If park is closed best place to park is just beyond where pavement ends and trail crosses.

11/10/19 - So you turn off 23 into Lickford Rd, where a large sign welcomes you to the Park. And all seems well. Tall autumnal trees line the landscape, and paints a very picturesque forest for your walk to take place in. Then you travel down the road, and continue down the road until you come to your first right turn onto Lickford Lake Road. You think, oh this must be where parking is. When you turn onto it however, you find a locked gate barring entry that looks like it hasn’t been opened in months. The GPS tells you your actual turn is further in and to keep going down Lickford Rd though anyway so you say okay whatever. The pavement quickly ends however, and turns into a one way dirt road filled with puddles and large rocks. You think your tires might now be bald ten minutes into the excursion, but onward you go. And eventually you come to the turn on your map. Into the middle of complete wilderness and no path in sight. Yeah, hm, I’ll keep going you say. So you keep driving a few more miles down this dirt path littered with debris until you come upon a large clearing. A huge board sits there, depicting the aftermath of brush fire, with a nice infographic to break up the monotony of your thankless journey. This a fork you realize and thankfully, since you got service back for a second, you can see that both dirt roads DO exist on map. Lickford continues on for miles and miles and you unfortunately realize, you cannot turn around due to how narrow the road is. However to the right is Aldanat Drive, which goes back around the lake and to 23. So of course you take Aldanat on the right, thinking the path might be available on this side. Which was incredibly stupid. Even worse kept than the dirt road previously, giant patches of grass assault your undercarriage, giant mounds of dirt thrust your car up and down, and even if your tiny sedan WAS a 4WD, I doubt it would handle much better on this crazy terrain posing as an actual road. Several times you would think your muffler was just wrenched from your car. Eventually about halfway through the road, you find a very unnoticeable dry river bed on the left, and think, this MUST be it. There’s literally not a single other path crossing in this entire god forsaken park. So of course you take your dog down it. Through tall brush and hanging branches, becoming covered in spurs and getting your dog littered with small bugs (that are thankfully not ticks). And after a 15 minute walk, you find yourself at a pathetic creek and the edge of someone’s private property where they hunt deer. Very idyllic. So you pathetically march back to your car, continue through the rest of the wilderness posing as a road, and suddenly, come back to the main bypass. Maybe it was closed because it was Sunday. Maybe it hasn’t been open in half a year due to all the cutbacks to the SC parks dept. In any case, if you like to see your car torn to shreds, take a leisurely walk in the middle of complete wilderness devoid of any scenery, and waste an entire day, by all means, take this hike. But don’t take my word for it. Sherry seemed to share my same opinion too.

6/1/2019. I took four dogs with me hiking today… Parts of the trail are overgrown and one of the bridges is about to collapse… But with that being said the trail itself is not in that bad of shape. It’s very easy to follow, just remember at the road crossings you’re going to almost always go directly across… I say this because again parts are overgrown and on one crossing it was a little bit tricky… Just look straight across and side to side no more than 20 or 30 feet and you will see it. Even though you are supposed to lease your dogs I almost never do, and this was no problem at all! I only ran into one other hiker and one bicyclist the whole day. It is mostly shaded but there is one area where are you sort of zigzag across the meadow and you are in the sun for about 20 minutes. All in all it’s a wonderful trail and one of the closest ones for me to get to… Will definitely be coming back and I have already done this trail maybe 10 or 12 times in the past five years… It’s due for some maintenance but it still a great trail! Also wonderful views along the creek and great for not having to carry water for the pooches… But make sure you bring some for yourself.

This trail just hasn’t been cleared yet for the season I think, but moderate is a correct assessment. Really a nice hike to go on, so much wildlife. It’s more like 5.7 miles, but the scenery changes so often you won’t get bored. Beautiful place to see!

Nice mountain bike trail, steady climbs and good downhills. Not as flowy as FATS. Good place to work on bike handling

Visited 12/11/16. To get there, expect mile after mile of single lane gravel-->then dirt roads. Hopefully you will have 4-wheel drive as there are many ruts and difficult terrain. It had also rained quite a lot a few days ago and my journey terminated when I came to a concrete slab (apparently a rudimentary bridge) that was underwater. I never did find the actual trail area, and came away feeling very frustrated. I used 2 different GPS devices to get there: my iPhone 6+ google maps and my new Garmin vehicle GPS.

nice 5.7 mile loop that remains relatively flat. Gets overgrown in summer.
