Firetower Trail Professional Review and Guide

"elevation 1,555 feet) to the top of Paris Mountain (1,978 feet). There is no longer a firetower on the summit, only the abandoned foundation of the caretaker’s house. Most mountain bikers come to Paris Mountain for the workout.

The climb is the major challenge on this wide roadbed, but keep an eye out for ruts, rocks, and debris. You won’t be rewarded with a view from the summit (the trees are too thick), but there are several winter views from the trail, and the mountain laurel lining the road is beautiful in the spring."

alright, this little gem of Greenville went from coal to diamonds. Greenville's new SORBA chapter is making some changes here. The new trails here are very mountain-bike-friendly. One, off the Firetower trail, is LOADED with whoopties...it's a rollar-coaster baby. No MTB on Saturday... I suppose this compromise w/ pedestrians makes sense.
