Awesome trail not at all a flat stroll. Being able to get in the river was the best part!

Nice trail.

challenging trail to run.

love the terrain for a great workout in about an hour!

Did this trail with my little brother and friend. We didn't know where to go so we ended up walking this one, and two other trails. I would do it again.

Great introduction to the trails of Harbison State Forest. Easy parking, just be sure to have $5 in cash for the day parking permit. An annual pass is only $25 for this amazing park in Columbia, SC.

Great, and surprisingly so for being in the middle of Columbia. everything was pretty well marked and there are some really cool sights along the way. I feel that this was more moderate than hard, though.

This is real outdoors right in the city! I have done this hike with my 12, 8, 4, and infant. It isn't too hard, but is challenging enough to entertain the kids. There is also a little spot on the river to stop midpoint.

was a bit boring for me at times, would be great for beginners. recommend going counterclockwise, but it seems like the trail can be ridden both ways. nice wide trails, well maintained and marked. grab a map at one of the stands, it will help you in the long run. i feel like the trail could use some more berms and maybe a small jump going off of one on the roots.

rode part of this trail until it conected to the stewardship trail (believe that was the name). nice wide trails.

More like "Get lost trail". Hardly any trail markers combined with constant split offs and cross paths makes it easy to get lost.

nice trail easy to spot mt bikes and get off the path to let them pass through

Great trail, worked perfect for a nice family hike.

Hiked May 2017. You have to take a small side trail (well trafficked obviously by the smooth dirt and lack of vegetation growing on the path!) to get to the river access. Side trail branches off an intersection where the trail is marked with a laminated sign tacked to a tree. Loved this trail. River access was beautiful and serene. Besides the river access it is a cool trail going through the forest, some ups and downs but nothing too strenuous. Spider Woman II is actually only a 2.2 miles loop but you have to take the Midlands Mountain Trail from the parking lot to get access to the Spider Woman II trail so that is what brings the hike total to 3 miles. Would definitely recommend!

needs better signs!

Fun trail, beautiful scenery and visible markers.

great trail

We tried to do this one in April on a Friday and the gates back to it were closed, said they are only open to the back Saturdays and Sundays so make sure you check. You can get back there but it is about a 1.5 road walk to the beginning of the trail head. We did a different one instead but will go back to do this one. We liked the area.

Easy beginner trail.
