A variety of undulating woodland trails in the midst of a major metropolitan area. Harbison State Forest is a special place for a variety of reasons. At 2,178 acres, it is the largest publicly owned and publicly accessible tract in the Dutch Fork–Irmo section of the Columbia metropolitan area. This land, once exhausted cotton field, has blossomed into an attractive urban forest whose trails afford pleasure and relaxation to hikers and mountain bikers. Bicyclists are allowed on three of the forest’s six trails, but the pathways are generally wide enough to handle all users commodiously.
