Mostly flat wooded trail in Harbison state forest. If recent rains, watchout for some muddy spots! Took about an hour an forty minutes, not really walking at a fast pace. Definitely doable and if the kids can be in it for almost 4 miles, definitely doable for them as well.

Nice day. Cool and misty. Water levels at the river amazingly high and a couple trails flooded because of it. Could find ways around at all points. Strung all the trails together to get the 20 miles but you can shorten it up as you like. Trails often muddy so don’t be surprised if you come back a bit dirty!

Nice moderate trail through woods with multiple areas to stop and grab a snack or water. Harbison Bluffs a little underwhelming but easily accessible. Trail sufficiently marked.

A nice gentle stroll. Just peace and quiet with shade but beautful with fall foliage.

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.

Trail was very enjoyable. Nice and wide for the most of it. Well maintained. $5 parking fee for the park.

This is a relatively easy trail however because of the current heavy rainfall half way through the trail you either have to turn back or maneuver across a wet skinny long to cross the long swamp trail the rain has created. Other than that it was very scenic and fun trail.

We ended up on this trail from Firebreak I think..not sure because we got confused. Great ride for 2 novice mountain bike riders. The whole park is great! Good place to break into mountain biking and also it's got to be great for intermediate and expert bikers. We really appreciate the thought, care and planning of these forest trails. Bring more water - you WILL need it.

It's hard to rate anything 5 stars once you have been to some of the Epic rides at Dupont State Forest but this trail has a little something for everyone. One huge berm which you can rail and good elevation change. For downtown Columbia, this trail and the connecting Spider Woman trails are as good as you are going to get. It's fun enough to keep me coming back!
