No. of Reviews: 6

Mostly tight, twisty singletrack with short climbs and downhills...No Sand! This trail is everything that K-3 isn't (not taking anything away from K-3 'cause I love it too). This is a very fun trail and now you can spend the weekend here riding these two great trails.

Summary:
Great trail. Kudos to the local bikers who are pouring in their time to maintain these trails. We drove up from Savannah to ride somewhere that isn’t under water and we were pleasantly rewarded. Recent rains had packed the soil and made a fast and smooth surface. There are some sandy sections but these were not sufficient in number to dampen the fun factor. If you ride Campbell's pond you can also hit K3 and the Red Loop which amounts to about 25 to 30 miles of some sweet singletrack.

Recommended Route:
Red loop, Campbell's pond and then K3

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Red loop and K3

Summary:
First time on this trail and it is pretty fast. Minimal climbing, some fun spots like the Devil's Backbone (spine? don't remember). All in all, a fast out and back. Well marked, clean, maintained. Combine this with Killer 3 and the Red Loop for 25+ miles of riding.

Recommended Route:
Out-and-back

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Killer 3 and Red Loop, at the same trailhead.

Summary:
I finally got out to this trail and it was a pleasant surprise. There was little to no sand and the trail itself was very dry with only one spot of mud to be found. It cracked me up to see signs denoting an approaching climb or some "special" portion of the trail (like "Kamikaze"). This trail is designed with keeping the traffic moving along in an orderly manner as you are asked to ride the main trail out to Campbell's Pond and the ride the low trail on your return. Although this is an out and back, the beauty of Campbell's Pond made the ride worth it. This would be a good trail for beginners and seasoned veterans alike. I rode two days after a soaking rain and the trail was bone dry!

Recommended Route:
Out and back. I also went down the portion of the Palmetto Trail that was connected to this trail to tack on some extra miles.

Summary:
Though this is a nice trail, I wasn't really impressed with it. There really isn't much to it. I'm not saying it's not worth riding, just that I wouldn't drive all the way there just to ride it. Combine it with a loop around K3 and you have a nice 20-23 mile day. Neither Campbell's Pond or K3 will make you work really hard (hey, there just isn't much elevation change in the area). Nice trail, just don't get your hope's up too high.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
K3

Summary:
What a great trail. Fun, fast, with some short tricky climbs to give you a workout. It is the best trail in the Manchester/poinsette (?) trail system. Alot of tight turns with some squeekers in between tree's. Hats off to whoever designed the trail. ONe of the best in the Columbia area

Recommended Route:
The one posted here

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Harbison (lost creek and spider woman), Lynches woods, but it needs some maintenance in a major way
