Great trail. Enjoyed the shade and paths are clear for most part

Did this last weekend. Ended up being 10.8 miles. Various terrain with two river lookout points; views will be better in winter with no leaves on the trees. Had a great time but miles 9 and 10 caught up with me and were slower moving. I was able to keep a 20 minute/mile pace.

Good hike enjoyed it

Trail was nice and clear, did see a good amount of trash from the people that fish the area. Over all a great place to walk or run. Bikes should be required to have a bell or horn as they approach other patrons of the park.

About a zillion splinter trails that I did not see on this map. On your first trip, don’t plan for a fast run and allow plenty of time for backtracking and getting turned around. Good mix of sand and pine straw terrain. Some elevation but not intense. Some shade, some sun.

Lots of fun, if you have $6 and a MTB on hand. It’s South Carolina white clay and sand, covered in pine straw, for almost the entire trail. *Some of the switchbacks are such dejavú that they momentarily make you feel like you’re off the trail. I rode it in the rain. So, that made some climbs an exciting.

It’s in a floodplain, so, naturally, expect flooded portions after heavy rains. Specifically access beyond 0.8 mile downriver and as close as 0.1 mi upriver from the new parking lot could be cut off due to flooding after a big rain. Still logged 5 miles there today going back and forth multiple times. Worth seeing this part of the Saluda under different conditions though- the river churning high is a humbling sight. Heron, hawks, lots of other birds to see.

This is probably the most difficult trail within the Columbia area for mountain biking. If you are relatively new to biking or are not used to riding on more technical trails then please use caution if you attempt this trail. It is full of steep inclines/declines and very sharp/rough switches. The root steps on the steep declines can drop more than a foot and the flat rocks can be very slick when wet. The trail is also relatively narrow so you have to watch for your pedals snagging on the vines as well as being careful not to fall off, the drop off the side of the trail can send you tumbling down 40+ ft. The trail offers beautiful scenery and is thriving with life. Hope this helps and have fun!!!

My son and I had a fantastic ride. Our first time. Not sure we got the whole trail. Strava measured at 8.3mi, but it was great. Lost of fun decents. Climbs were manageable. Perfect.

Started at main lot since road closed. Added bluffs and went in and out on midlands mountain and firebreak. Also added internal loop to spider woman. About 11 miles in all. Great mix of terrain. Enjoy.

Always a fan of this trail...lower part of Mid Mtn is mushy due to flooding a few weeks ago. one tip: instead of stepping in the mud or potential mud, use big twigs or logs to cross damp areas. Found them to be much more solid and not sink so much. The riverside connector between Spiderwoman and Mid Mtn has lots of debris due to the fact it was underwater a few weeks ago. Parts of this trail are not visible so be careful as there are some potential sinkholes. The block that served as a bridge across a little gulley was unseated, so the steady crossing is laying on the bank of this little gulley. Instead there is this weak piece going across. even I with my 140 lb frame was a little scared on it. Needed my pole to climb up the other side. Fun though to go through this connector seeing all the different foot prints. A lot of deer prints.

bridge out

We could not make it to the island bc the bridge is not yet built or washed out. Area of the trails had debris due to former high water conditions. And one area had standing water, but we ventured toward the alternate trail formed by previous hikers in order to go around this. A really nice walk on a stupendously gorgeous day!

Trails were closed first thing so walked the road. They opened up soon after so hiked the trails. There’s a nice little loop up at the bluffs that is worth adding. Cut our day short as we ran out of time. Love the winter weather.

Decent little trail, convenient for its proximity to the city. I'm not quite sure I'd rate it "Moderate," as I've been on numerous trailheads that are more difficult and demanding than this entire loop. Relatively quiet, with the exception of two larger (6-8) groups of people, who I passed while they were taking a break and having a bite. I did visit the day after some rain showers moved through, so conditions were a little soggy in some areas, and had standing (or a trickle of running) water in others. Park staff actually placed road signs out indicating they closed the trails due to wet conditions sometime during my hike. The trail doesn't bring you nearly as close to the river as one might suspect, based on the map. Instead, there's a small off shoot to the Harbison Bluffs, which provide a broken view of the water. Near the bluffs, there is a small memorial, and markers for what appear to be an unnamed trail. The unnamed trail actually provided some of the nicest scenery, and some of the most solitude. It does get extremely narrow in some parts, with a pretty substantial drop off on one side (30+ ft). There were also tire impressions from bikes, so something to be cognizant of, especially in the narrow areas. The path passes back and forth over a small creek a few times, but there were rocks at every crossing to walk across. One end of the trail is right behind the memorial, the other is at the top of the bluffs, near the bench. Park service has just about clear cut an entire swath of land near where the trail meets Firebreak, apparently in order to promote new growth. Unfortunately, it's pretty unsightly. There are also several other areas with a number of marked trees, so it looks like the practice will be spreading a bit. While I'm sure I'll be back to Harbison in the future to check out some of their other trails, I can't see making a special trip just to experience this trail again.
