This ride is one of five interconnecting loops called the Enoree Off-Highway Vehicle Trail. A rough sketch of the complete route, distributed by the Forest Service, gives you another 15 miles to explore. While designed for motorcycles and ATVs, the trail sees little use on weekdays.
This loop takes you up and down several times on gently rolling hills, and the smooth trail lets you ride fast. The motorcycles have created fun berms, whoop-dee-do’s, and mudholes. You will find few obstacles, and the hardpacked sand remains in good shape except after a big rain. When I rode at Enoree, a portion of the trail was closed for repair, which is sometimes the case there when loops are rerouted. The description here completes Loop 1 using a clay roadbed. The Upstate Trail Riders Association, a motorcycle club which supports mountain bike use at Enoree, works with the Forest Service to maintain the five loops. Contact the Forest Service to find out about scheduled workdays. Tread: Singletrack with one mile on old roadbed.
