This is a great place for exercise. they have a 4 mile gravel loop trail that you can drive, walk, horseback ect. throught. I really like it beacause I was able to take the stroller when my kids where younger. My dog loves it too! The lower side of the trail (the first two miles) has a creek running along it and is my favorite part of the walk. There are also foot trails throughout the main loop.
...Long story short take the family they'll love it.
This was a fairly disappointing outing. The trails are lightly traveled and not marked well, at all! I tried to follow a track and found myself constantly ending up on the gravel roads. Eventually I found an entry point and made my way through but decided to cut my hike short and make my way back to the car.
This area has loads of potential if someone would take the time to mark the trails and clear up the blowdowns. Otherwise, I could see someone getting lost in here.
Very nice for day hiking. I live in Chapin and this trail is close enough to do in a few hours and be back home for dinner. It should get more foot traffic once the sections of the midlands section of the Palmetto Trail are finished. I agree with the comment about horse poo, but at least that is the worst of the problems. Pretty flat and has a good amount of intercrossing trails for horse and bike traffic. Well worth the drive if you are on the Northwest side of Columbia.
