Marrington is a 13.65 mile trail located in Goose Creek, SC. It has several trails with the Red loop being the main trail and the blue trails being shortcuts (rarely used). There are also yellow trails that are technical sections, for mountain bikes, and an Orange trail that is tight and twisty

The trail is fantastic. It provides good obstacles, terrain variance, and switch backs. The trail has a lot of roots, so if you aren't used to riding with roots be prepared for a bumpier ride.

It is well marked for the red trail. The blue bypass & yellow technical trails could be better marked off of the red trail. I also wished they had each section labeled on the trail like they do on the actual map at the trail head.

Some of the mile markers are facing the wrong direction of you are riding counterclockwise (which is the way they say to ride this trail).

This trail is on the Navy base and helmets and military ID is required.
Love it for mountain biking, the views were awesome and the variety of trails can't be beat. I would give it 5 stars if there weren't so many roots, brace yourself for a rough ride.

I rode my mountain bike on the trail that had the yellow paint. Well parts of it . I'm not familiar of the trail so I kept going around in a loop. However , just that little area i rode in had some nice dips and a lot of ruts . It kept me busy . I will definitely print the map so I can try the entire trail the next time.

Great trail to run or mountain bike. Best in the area as far as I'm concerned. Helmets are required. And be mindful of the signs if the trail is closed.

This is by far the best mountain bike trail in Charleston, I have watched this trail grow from barely used and only 8 miles of access to over 20 in a 15 year span........for those that can't handle the footy parts....ride on the pavement.
