Lots of double track fire road riding. These fire roads cross the foothills hiking trail and Table Rock State park trails in several places... these hiking trails get extreme but /are/ rideable for the most part, although they are not officially open to bikes. The fire roads, however, ARE officially open to bicycles. (See the Table Rock State Park trail review on this page). There are over 25 miles of riding on multiple trails/fire roads here. Topo Maps are available of this area, USGS Topographic Series, "Eastatoe Gap" and "Table Rock" Quadriangles cover this area.

Trail Directions
From Pickens take Hwy 178 north to Hwy 11. It may be best to park at Holly Springs Country Store which is at this intersection (no parking lot at trail head). Proceed through the 4 way stop up hwy 178 for just a little over 2 miles. A logging road on the right with a green gate is the trail head. There is a large topo map of the area posted at the gate. Get a good look at this map!!

Summary:
Best mtb in SC! Very backcountry feel to the area. not alotta uphill, but a hella lotta downhill! Don't let the gravel rd. at the trailhead discourage you from wanting to ride, it's worth it, and its only gravel for the beginning! Great natural water bar jumps at Adger! Can be riddin at 20 plus mph!

Recommended Route:
Go up the 4 miles on the green trail then go straight through the 1st red gate directly infront of you (not the ones off to your sides!). After passing through the gate continue straight through the valley and creek crossings. When you come to a fork, if you see it, go right. This will send you towards hwy 11 and spit you out about 2 miles up from 178. That way makes about a 9 mile loop. or if you just want really fast downhill and a shorter ride head up the green trail and once again go through the 1st red gate directly infront of you and proceed to make a left hand turn about 100 yards ahead. you will have to climb about 1.5 to 2 miles uphill before reaching the top. Trust me though its worth it! the downside of the mtn promises you a much steeper ride down with jumps! Once you reach the top you will get to go DH for about 4 miles back to the trail head off of 178!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Dupont, Paris Mtn. And make a weekend trip up to wilsons creek area in NC! Thats where I ride every week. Pick up a Wilson creek area trail map and be sure to check out Wilsons Ridge (21 jumpstreet), and Schoolhouse, and Woodruff ridge!

Summary:
From the highway to the base of Pinnacle Mountain is not too bad, intermediate I would say. The ascent up Pinnacle however, is very rocky and technical. There is a slick rock section also near the top. After the road goes back into the woods from the open slick rock, it intersects/becomes the Pinnacle Mountain Hiking Trail. You'd better know the area or have a topo map and be good at reading it if you go beyond this point. This part of the hiking trail gets little traffic since it is several miles from Table Rock State Park and not many hikers venture out this far.

Recommended Route:
From the green gate at the beginning of the fire road, get ready for a moderate 4 mile climb on a very wide, well packed fire road. After the 4 mile ascent, you'll come to a red gate across the fire road, go around it and follow the same road down into the valley, three stream crossings in the valley. There will be a fork in the road on the way down, this fork is in a hairpin turn, stay left! After the third stream crossing, you start up again for about 2 miles up Pinnacle Mountain. If you crave extreme downhill, take the first hiking trail you encounter east. This is the Pinnacle Mountain Hiking Trail which originates at Table Rock State Park. It will eventually end at Table Rock State Park. Go out of the Park, take a right on hwy 11 and you'll end up back at the Country Store and 4 way stop. You'd better know the area or have a topo map and be very good at reading it if you decide to go on to Table Rock State Park. If you are not into the extreme stuff, you get to turn around and back track your way out from Pinnacle.
