Real close to Downtown Greenville. Is short, but a great workout if you don't have a lot of time. Some good short climbs and steep down hills.Fun if you ride several laps.

Summary:
Timmons is really more of a freeriding skills park than a mountain biking trail. You'll find examples of difficult roots, rocks, drops, cross-slopes, very steep sections, loose conditions, etc. Pick spots on which you need work and ride reps. Impress your riding buds with your new skills later on.

I don't go to Timmons often because my style of riding is more cross country/scenic and less technical. I think it hacks off the disc golfers too. I play disc rounds @ Timmons much more often than I ride there. It's a pretty good golf course.

Recommended Route:
Park you car in any of several spots. Look for cool terrain and just ride around. There's not really any route to it. An earlier reviewer mentioned 2 miles of trail. You'd have a tough time scrounging that much trail length out of Timmons without repeating. It's not a large park, so you're not really going anywhere. Try riding two miles without leaving your yard.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Paris Mountain State Park is the best riding nearby.

Summary:
Good for what it is, a quick ride close to town to practice on. Not a trail to go out of your way for. There are a lot of frisbee golfers on the trail now, so watch out.

The far right side of the park behind the picnic shelters from the entrance is the best part of the trail. There is one large hill that makes a tricky decent with all the roots that are exposed.

Recommended Route:
Start at the bridge head right around the baseball field. Be sure you fork off in the woods behind the picnic shelter (from the entrance the far right of the park), that is the best part of the trail, whoop-de-woos, two switchbacks, etc.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Clemson Experimental Forrest (Issaquenna Dam Trail) and Paris Mountain.

Summary:
I didn't feel like driving to Dupont this weekend so thought I'd give Timmons a try. The park is not really well suited for someone really looking to ride. If you have kids it would be a fine place to go ride. If you play frisbee golf, this is a great park. I would not recommend the park for mountain biking. The trail is dull and you have to dodge the frisbee players.

Summary:
Basically, it's a beginner trail. Pretty boring for more experienced riders. The only entertaining part of the ride was a short downhill section. But otherwise, pretty boring. No jumps or anything interesting.

Summary:
RIDE THE NORTH SHORE TEETER TOTTER trail...its SOOO sick, with this CRAZY 17' drop, with a 12 foot transition. THIS TRAIL IS awesome! The singletrack here is right up there with some riding I have done out in Kamloops...a FREERIDER'S dream! This is one part of the trail out here where the frisbee golfers havent ruined anything.

Recommended Route:
Forward/backward

Other recommended trails in the same area:
The new DH/Slalom and XC trail out at Paris MTN. state park. I think there will be a MTB festival out here soon?
