Midlands Mountain Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The Midlands Mountain Trail is one of three hikes featured in the Harbison State Forest, located near Columbia, South Carolina.

This route makes a loop in the eastern portion of the state forest along the Broad River. There is no water source along the trail, although hikers and dogs can fill up on drinking water at the education center before heading out."

"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."
