Keg Creek

Average Rating:    (3.14 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 7

This trail is one of my favorite trails. There has beed alot of work done to the trail. It has many dips and technical areas including creek crossings. The ride also has many fast sections and is well established except for a few new reroutes. There are many scenic views around Clarks Hill Lake and Keg Creek. There is still work in progress but the trail is open and ridable with the exeption of some areas where you need carry your bike over. We are also very lucky to have the support of the Corps of Engineers.

Summary:
Nice trail but needs more wheels on it. Being that I did a winter ride there was a lot of leaves and pine straw a few trees fell recently but I;d still go back. If your looking for a nice quiet place to ride that isn't overly challenging this is it. very nice place for a short ride.

4 stars based on peace of quiet

Recommended Route:
Either direction. You can do the lope and try your luck with the 55 mph road or just double back and make it a 12 mile ride.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
can ride all the way to the dam from here.

Summary:
If you are an "advanced" beginner, like me, this is a great trail to hone your skills on. Take it slow on your first trip, the technical sections have a way of sneaking up on you. This trail is heavy with roots and will pound on your rear end. The technical challenge will double if the roots are wet, lots of side hill lies and areas where your front tire can washout. Lots of varied terrain, no real tough elevation changes. One note, if you are riding in the summer, and the first one thru the trail, it is thick with orb spiders and their webs. You'll feel like you were in an Indiana Jones movie when you are done. Apparently they don't bite, because i was covered with webs when I was done. One caution: You have to ride on a busy road and across a narrow bridge to get back to your vehicle. Stay alert!

Recommended Route:
Beginners should ride counter clockwise.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
FATS is nearby and an IMBA Epic. Modoc is a great trail to put you back in your place when you start feeling like you've moved up to sport class.

Summary:
This is a nice trail that is close to Augusta, GA. From what I can tell this trail is not well ridden. Luckily there was paint on the trees along the way so that you could find the trail in spots. There are several creek crossings and some sections where you have to carry your bike across, but all in all it was a nice trail. Made me think of just riding through the woods really. The ride back to the parking area across the Keg Creek bridge was a hairy one, Washington Road is one of the busiest roads in Augusta and outside of there. Luckily we caught a break in traffic. I ride trails for a reason, cars scare me.

Recommended Route:
We rode counter clockwise, but many of the creek crossings would have been much easier clockwise.

Summary:
I could not find the trail. I parked in the parking lot on the left side of the road and could only find a hiking trail. I rode that trail but it was very undefined once I rode for about 10 minutes.

Summary:
Very easy trail that has lots to offer to the casual rider that would like to see some wilderness. Difficulty is about 3 out of 10 only because there is a few creek crossings that will test some skills. for the most part it is just a nice enjoyable ride. spits you out on the road for a short climb on Washinton street. Some climbing but not much at all. A few nice sections that offer up a few 25-30 mph runs.

Recommended Route:
Follow the Hiking trail to the right of the parking lot and do it counter clockwise.
