Harbison State Forest is located 5 miles west of downtown Columbia SC. The small forest is located within and among suburban housing and industrial buildings making it the perfect destination for mountain bikers and hikers. With a network of trails designed and maintained by local cyclists this area was a pleasant riding surprise.
Parking at the dirt lot immediately upon entering the area riders can access the loop single-track trails that traverse the heavily wooded and undulating terrain. For tandem teams these trails are the perfect combination of fun and challenge with small climbs, fast rolling descents, and meandering trails through the trees.
Trail maps are available at the parking kiosk and all trails are visibly marked. A large volume of locals utilize these trails so getting lost is a non-option.
