Description:

The Long Cane Horse Trail is an intermediate 25+ mile trail network in Sumter National Forest between Abbeville and Greenwood, SC. The trail has plenty of intermediate technical sections including log and creek crossings, climbing, rooty terrain and fast descents. The LCHT is multi use so be on the look out for Equestrians, Hikers and Hunters as they frequent the trail as well. There is an abundance of scenery and wildlife along most of the LCHT and it is single track. Most users access the trail at 505/506 "E", Fell Hunt Camp "A" or The Big Rock "G" (see USFS map). Be sure to wear bright colors during hunting season and always yield to horses. This trail has a website (www.greenwoodmtb.us if you would like more info (directions, pics video, maps, ride descriptions etc.)
