The Midlands Mountain Trail, the oldest loop at Harbison, used to lie in the floodplain of the Broad River, and occasionally, in years past, part of the trail has been inundated. A new section of trail built in 1996 keeps the route on the ridge. The trail covers a variety of biocommunities. You will pedal through river floodplain, as well as pine woodlands, bottom hardwoods, north slopes, and coves. The floodplain attracts wildlife to this part of the forest. I saw deer and wild turkeys on my ride. Be sure to take the detour to Harbison Bluffs for winter views of the Broad River. Tread: Singletrack.

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