Trail is typical of the South. Take a right at the trail head, other wise you will miss alot of the jumps. Legally you are supposed to turn in a form to the Naval Base to get permission to ride. It will take 4 to 6 weeks. I enjoyed it and will be riding again soon. I put skill level beginner, but could be intermediate

Summary:
We were visiting from Southern California where mountain biking is on real mountains hence my low ratings in the aerobic and technical difficulties categories. Since there is really no elevation gain a good work out requires riding hard and fast and it is quite fun. We did it in mid/late October under absolutely ideal weather and riding conditions. First timers should have a map since it is easy to get turned around when your only views are trees around you. If I lived there this would be my multiple per week ride. If I could I would give it three and a half stars but I will be generous.

Recommended Route:
Getting there look for the recreation area sign. If you end up at the Naval Base guard house you've gone too far, go back about a mile. Do em' all (loops) but be aware right near the end in a grassy "power line" looking clearing as the trail dead ends just over an old wooden bridge. Back over the bridge to pick up the sharp right hand turn (from the original direction) riding up the clearing. That turn was nearly invisible and we back tracked a couple miles until finding a local to show the way out.

Summary:
This trail needs an updated recommendation ! I made my way to this trail over the weekend and I was pleasantly surprised. I live in NC, but my parents live in Charleston and I will bring my bike every time I visit. The trail makes great use of the land and features of this area, you go through several different landscapes: swamp, riverbanks, woods. No elevation whatsoever, and not technically challenging to an intermediate rider but for the lowcountry, this is a cool spot to ride a bike. I think with all options the trail is ~20 miles? This would be a great place to bring kids out to learn to ride, or for beginners to hone their skills.

Recommended Route:
I met a local in the lot when I arrived and he showed me around. The popular route is counter clockwise. All the options are well marked just follow the red trail blazes and you will be fine!

Summary:
The good: well maintained, well marked, the best off road trail within 1.5 hour drive of charleston sc.
The bad: Pretty boring trail as mountain bike trails go but what else would you expect in the Low Country.

One more note. Not sure about the "required pass' thingy. i didn't see any signs indicating a pass was required.

Summary:
Trail is good considering how flat this part of the country can be. Sand, roots, and gullies keep it interesting. Not a really hard trail, flows well and pretty tight single track. Many websites state you need a day pass from Naval office since it's on their land, but I've never gotten one and never had a problem. Pass is $10, must be applied for in person and takes 10 days to get it if approved. Good luck with that hassle. Trail is Not very technical. Maps at trailhead in a mailbox are helpful although trail is blazed/marked pretty well. Check Low Country Fat Tire Freaks on Facebook to make sure trail is open.

Recommended Route:
Red blaze main with any yellow blaze options. Clay pits, amazon, and Foster areas seemed the most interesting to me.
