Turkey Ridge Loop - Hickory Knob

Average Rating:    (4.5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 4

1.8 mile sperm loop. It is a nice addition to ride when riding the Lake Loop. Riding a lap on this adds 2 miles to the 7 mile Lake Loop. It starts across the street from the barn at HKSP. From the barn, find the fencing across the street and ride thru it. The trail starts with a .2 mile in/out stem into a 1.6 mile loop. Either direction is good on the loop. It does have a little more climbing than the Lake Loop has, relatively. Go right and you will climb a nice series of climbing turns and then drop down a fast descent. Either way though - you climb out a little steepie on the back to the barn. One day this will link to the Beaver Run Trail that goes to the Lodge in Hickory Knob.

Summary:
Nice trail, not too technical but I thought some of the climbs were pretty stiff. I was really winded when we got done (we rode the Lakeview first).

Recommended Route:
Counter clockwise is the way that we did it, and that was a lot up hill. Will have to try it clockwise and see how that is.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Lakeview loop (it is just across the road)

Summary:
Best trail in Hickory Knob State Park. Better than the Lakeview Loop. It's only negative is that is only a 2 mile ride from the barn in HKSP, onto this trail and back to the barn.

Recommended Route:
In the out/back and right onto the loop. This direction allows the climbing turns to be climbed and the more open and flowing hill to be bombed down. Fun the other way too, but best CCW.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Lakeview Loop and Beaver Run in HKSP, Baker Creek SP

Summary:
this is a really fun trail. i almost like it better than the lake loop. its real short and sweet though. there's one section where you'll start flyin downhill and you'll hit a nice lip and you can catch some big air with a nice landing. it crosses over a creek several times but there's nothin really techy on this trail, its just a cool trail. i think they're connecting this one with that other trail up by the restaurant too.

Recommended Route:
counter-clockwise

Other recommended trails in the same area:
baker, wine and turkey creeks kick butt

Summary:
1.8 mile sperm loop that is a total of 2 miles of riding when you ride it. Great trail thru what seems to be a mostly hardwood forest - rare in this neck of SC. It's not that long, but is fun to ride with the Lake Loop.

Recommended Route:
Both ways. It's short!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Across the street the Lake Loop at HKSP and 5 miles away at Baker Creek State Park
