Long Cane Multi Use

Average Rating:    (4.83 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 6

The Long Cane Horse Trail is an intermediate 25+ mile trail network in Sumter National Forest between Abbeville and Greenwood, SC. The trail has plenty of intermediate technical sections including log and creek crossings, climbing, rooty terrain and fast descents. The LCHT is multi use so be on the look out for Equestrians, Hikers and Hunters as they frequent the trail as well. There is an abundance of scenery and wildlife along most of the LCHT and it is single track. Most users access the trail at 505/506 "E", Fell Hunt Camp "A" or The Big Rock "G" (see USFS map). Be sure to wear bright colors during hunting season and always yield to horses. This trail has a website (www.greenwoodmtb.com) if you would like more info (directions, pics video, maps, ride descriptions etc.)

Summary:
Trails are in great shape right now. The best flowing single track in the state IMHO.

Recommended Route:
Head In the kudzu first or if you want more climbing go out the first 4 miles.

Summary:
I'm from Jacksonville, FL and my grandparents happen to live 15 minutes from this trail so I brought my bike up with me when I came to visit them and went for a ride. I had a blast. The trails were in great shape and were mostly hard packed with very little sand, roots, or rocks. There is nothing overly technical but the flow is great and I felt like I was going downhill 75% of the time. I will definitely be riding this trail every time I am in town.

Recommended Route:
I can't really recommend a route but I second bringing a guide. I came alone and all of the maps were gone from the kiosks I found and I didn't have a GPS. I wouldn't say it's easy to get lost but it's definitely easy to get turned around. I'll probably try to find a guide next time.

Summary:
I met Ashby Stokes and his brother for their Sunday afternoon ride May 25th. Mostly smooth singletrack fast and flowing with creek crossings, fast downhills and not too much climbing. It's not too technical but has sweet flow. The trail is very well maintained and offers a wide variety of landscapes and terrain - all fun. It was well worth the drive (I am from Jacksonville, FL) and is on my list to return to any time I am able. I recommend first time riders contact Ashby Stokes at the link on the trail description and meet him or one of the Greenwood mountain bikers the first time because the trail runs on gravel road at several places and would be difficult to follow without a guide. Don't miss this sweet trail if you are in the area!

Recommended Route:
Rode it counterclockwise starting at the 505/506 trailhead but it could be ridden either direction.

Summary:
This one will not challenge with technical requirements but will challenge your aero engine if ridden fast. Sweet flowing single track with a few short steep climbs and lots of gradual up/downhills. Very lucky to have this one in my back yard for training and hanging out with the guys.

Recommended Route:
Ride it all! A few sections are out and back, but thgat does not diminishe the fun factor at all. The mileage total is roughly 26 miles when all is ridden.

Summary:
This is the hidden gem of trails in South Carolina. A big group of riders of all skill levels rides this trail on Tuesdays and Thursdays (after work) and many times on the weekends. It is FAST, flowing and fun. It is one of the best maintained trails thanks to the local group of riders you will find at www.greenwoodmtb.com. Dont come to South Carolina to ride your mountain bike and miss this one.

Recommended Route:
