The trail is located on a small
strip of land between the canal tow path and the Savannah
River. To find the main trail entrance, follow the
fence between the railroad tracks and the pumping station,
stay on the railroad side of the fence, there is a well worn
path here. You wont go very far before you see an
entrance into the woods on your left. Ride down the
stairs, and you're at the trail.
The trail itself is short, but
very tight and twisty. This is a great trail to work
on your bike handling skills. This trail has no long
climbs, but does have some steep short ones which are
usually full of roots and will test your skills.
The trail is directional based on
the day of the month. Even days are counter clockwise,
odd days are clockwise. This is a very popular trail,
and it's important to ride in the correct direction to avoid
a head-on collision with a runner or another rider.
The trail is so twisty you'll be right on top of someone
before you see them.
There's several other small
sections of trail along the towpath, so do some exploring
and see what all you can find!
Follow the tow path west to get
to the head gates of the canal, and the Savannah Rapids
Pavillion. Go east on to tow path to ride into
