Combine the forest’s three loops and you have the locals’ favorite ride. Use Firebreak West as an entrance trail and the Firebreak East as an exit trail for this loop. You can ride the main gravel road to connect with the Stewardship Trail, or use the recently completed 1.5-mile link, which eliminates the gravel. Tread: Singletrack with 0.8 mile on gravel road.

This loop connects all the Harbison trails (Firebreak, Stewardship, and Midlands Mt.) to make one great ride with a little of everything. The trail has lots and lots of tree roots, there are also lots of mud puddles, so plan on getting dirty, unless there's been a drought. The Midland mt section of the loop has been partially closed due to a missing bridge, you can dismount and carry-on to the most challenging climb on the loop. there are also a couple of places to take a break and enjoy the scenery.

Great set of trails for Cola. Good place to ride when you don't have time for the mountains. Ride the big loop with side trails. (the best part)

The best in the Columbia area. Actually part of the Harbison complex (15 miles of trails that includes Firebreak, Midlands Mountain, & Stewardship) of interconnection trails on the trails.com list. These trails have enough to keep the beginner to advanced rider challenged.
