Are you adventurous and like to ride your bicycle? The CSRA chapter of the SORBA (Southern Off-Road Bicycle Association) has some shared some great bike trails in this region for riders of all skills!
Here’s a few trails worth checking out!
- Bartram trail: Ideal for beginners and intermediate riders, it is 18.5 miles one way and it will take you through the West Dam Recreational Area, Lake Springs, Petersburg, and Wildwood Parking, ending at Washington Road. It’s a fairly fast trail with wonderful views of the lake.
- North Augusta Greenway: Great beginner path! The Greenway was built on an abandoned railroad track and now is almost completely flat and car free riding. It is used for multiple purposes like cycling, walking, and running. Eventually the City of North Augusta intends on linking the Greenway with the Palmetto Parkway.
- Keg Creek: Perfect for intermediate riders, Keg Creek features roots, dips, bridges, and creek crossings. The loop in full is about 9.2 miles long and easily connects with Bartram and Mistletoe State Park.
- Mistletoe State Park: There are many different trails to ride here, it’s more for intermediate to advance riders though. Challenge yourself and try the various loops, totaling to about 13 miles. Rock Dam is the main trail but is considered a challenge even for seasoned riders as there are numerous creek crossings and rocky climbs.
