Lynches Woods Park

Average Rating:    (4.43 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 46

Exceptional area which provides some of the most technical trails in the state. Lynches Woods Park is the Central Piedmonts mountain singletrack. This marvel area is part of an ancient mountain range worn down over millions of years and left the top what is now called Lynches Woods Park.

Summary:
Finding where to enter or start the trail was a little tough, but might be because it was my first time at the park. I suggest finding somewhere to park and follow the road until you see a (bike trail) marker.

Only rode about half the loop but the trail seemed well maintained. Very smooth (except for some roots) and looked to be regularly ridden. It was more technical than fast but there are a few areas to pick up some speed. It's a tight ride with a lot of ups and downs.

It is a definite ride if your in the area. Have fun and remember to stay safe.

Summary:
Here's a trail that has seen better days. The same huge trees that were down a year ago are still down. As a taller rider, I caught a lot of brush head-height throughout the loop. The trail is getting reclaimed by nature; it doesn't appear to get much use beyond the first mile or two from the parking lot. I won't be back until I hear things have markedly improved.

Summary:
Just hit this one up on a nice, dry saturday afternoon. Trail was nice. Technical and windy, yes. Marked all that well, no. You can get a bit confused if your trying to follow a certain route. It is pretty tight in a lot of corners (busted my @$$ when a tree caught my foot). About 4 or 5 downed trees but they were big-uns so I don't want to sound negative for those who actually take the time to maintain it. I will ride it again when I get burned out on Harbison again...

Summary:
I rode this for the first time. I am a true weekend warrior, and I would say this trail is not really technical. A few rocks, roots, and whoop-de-do's, but that's it. And it is REALLY twisty with many sections that double back almost right on top of the previous section. It is reasonably well marked, but needs better marking to let you know where you are along the trail. All that said, it is in a beautiful section of woods, surprising since it is surrounded by a lot of treeless spaces. I'd ride it again.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Either go south to Columbia and Harbison State Forest, or north to Greenville for Paris Mountain State Park

Summary:
I ride this trail often & it had several trees down last month but I rode 12/26 & 12/27 & a great deal of maintenance had been done in that time. I just wanted to say thank you to who ever put in the effort to rake & cut downed trees. Your work does not go unnoticed or unappreciated.

That would be me and a couple of guys from Harrell's Bicycle World. I worked in there about everyday over my Christmas vacation getting it back in decent shape. There is still a big "limbo log" that you have to crawl under/around, but otherwise the trail is ready to ride! Y'all have fun on it!
