Trail Riding Near Charleston?

Recommended Posts

Just moved to the Charleston area from Rhode Island, yeah I know damn Yankee. But never mind that I been here over a month and I'm not seeing many bikes in the back of trucks and I'm starting to think there are not any legal riding areas close by. I'm used to crazy hills, rock gardens, sand, mud, stream and so on. If any one can let me in any good place near by I'd appreciate it. If there aren't any places near by I'll be forced to sell my bikes and go for some jet ski's. Thanks for any help.

Do a google search for wambaw cycle trail. A fried of mine mentioned maybe going there sometime. I'm a couple of hours or so away in North Carolina so if yo try it out please PM me and let me know how it was. I don't look at this forum too often.

Welcome to the South.

Wambaw is the closest trail to you. No rock gardens or mud to speak of. Lots of sand. There are some crazy hills. 24 to 36 inches high and 6 to 8 feet apart. And lots of them.

Closest rocks are in North Carolina.:bonk:

Welcome to SC. I grew up in Seekonk, Ma. 5 minutes from Providence. The only legal trails to ride near Charleston that I know of is Wambaw at Francis Marion National Forrest. Don't sell your bikes, there are a ton of places to ride w/in a couple hour drive from Charleston.

TNT has a starter track, 2 big tracks, an atv track, and freestyle jumping, and trails.

Carolina Adventure World has tracks and trails

Here is a list of placest to ride that I put toghether a few weeks ago.

MX TRACKS/TRAILS

South Carolina

Camp Coker Raceway -

100-foot long, 50-foot tall step-up. The dirt is loose, deep sand and the track gets extremely rough. Nearest town: Society Hill.

Contact: (423) 323-5497.

Carolina State Motocross -

A first-weekend-of-the-month and non-race weekend practice format is used. Night races are held during the summer. The 2-1/4 mile layout is arranged on tacky loam and a multitude of triples, doubles and rhythm sections are designed into the lap. The outdoor section of the track goes around a pond and through a wooded area. Nearest town: Yemassee.

Contact: (912) 748-6304.

Dogwood Hollow MX Park – Amenities: Grooming, Lights, Parking

Rolling terrain, intermediate red clay and 115-, 90- and 60-foot step-downs highlight this practice track. The remainder of the 1-1/10 mile layout is wide, natural terrain and also offers long, sweeping turns, doubles, downhills, step ups, triples, uphills, whoops. The track has become a hangout for local pros. Nearest town: Edgemoor.

Contact: (803) 366-3805.

Empire Motocross Park – Amenities: Bathroom, Bikewash, Grooming, Lights, Parking, Watering

The dirt is loamy red clay, a third of the course is alongside a moderate incline and big jumps include a 70-foot step-up, 70-foot tabletop and 70-foot triple. Nearest town: Hardeeville.

Contact: (843) 784-5771.

Hell Hole Motocross -

Clay is used to form jumps on the mostly fine, beach-like sandy soil. The terrain is rolling and the circuit becomes extremely rough, with deep, monorail berms. The hugely-whooped uphill section is a favorite. Nearest town: Leesville.

Contact: (803) 750-0844.

Kirk Beitzel's Supercross -

Three years ago when Kirk Beitzel was looking for a home, he found a house with enough land to build a race track. Kirk's layout includes a 65-foot triple, 54-foot double over the driveway and a killer whoop section. The 15-acre site will soon be expanded to offer a larger outdoor circuit. Nearest town: Hardeeville.

Contact: (843) 784-2485.

Manchester State Park -

Daily practice is run from mid-August to January. The course is one-mile in length and covered in fine, loose, beach sand. Clay is used to add jumps to the layout. The circuit is best known for becoming exceptionally rough and for its series of deep, monorail switchback turns. The 100-acre park offers open riding. Nearest town: Sumter.

Contact: (803) 750-0844.

Sand Hills Motorsports Park -

Loamy sand covers the one-mile track and a 50-foot tabletop is the big leap. The sand pushes to the outside of corners and turns the track into a fast, berm-busting layout. Nearest town: Chesterfield.

Contact: (843) 623-2036.

Strawberry Hills Motocross -

The prepped, one-mile loam course is arranged on a hillside with a European design. Built up with mostly single jumps, dropaways and a moderate-sized double, a favorite portion is the high-banked S-turn section. Nearest town: Fountain Inn.

Contact: (864) 233-3076. http://www.strawberryhillmx.com/

TNT Motorsports - Amenities: Grooming, Watering

This two-mile long course covers intermediate to hard soil and runs through a creek bottom and up a hill with moderate climbs. Interesting features include off-camber turns, a 55-foot double and a tricky section made by a tall ant hill connected to a 35-foot tabletop. Open for practice only on Saturday and Sunday. Nearest town: Chester.

Contact: (803) 482-4759. http://www.tntmotorsportsinc.com/

Turkey Creek Motocross - Ammenities: Grooming, Watering

Wambaw south loop is open as of 4/3. Better get there in a hurry tho.... It's whoop free and very fast. Very likely to be whooped out soon.

BTW - What's all the fuss about riding places legally? I've tried it and it's not nearly as fun as going to places where you're not welcome. Besides, I'm much faster when riding away from someone who wants to shoot me.
