Central Unveils New Biking and Hiking Trails

The new Central SWU Hiking/Biking trails are located at 727 Clayton St, Central, SC 29630, just off the main campus of Southern Wesleyan University in Central, SC.

The trails were built as part of a collaborative effort between The City of Clemson, The Town of Central, Pickens County, and Southern Wesleyan University.

There are approximately 6 miles of very high-quality machine-built singletrack constructed in what’s known as a “Stacked Looped” design. The stacked loop design allows for trail use in a multitude of configurations that will accommodate every trail user from the most novice to the most advanced.

If a half-mile is all you are up for, then that’s no problem; the first loop is just that, with only 80 feet of elevation gain. If you want to push your limits, you can stretch it out to a six-mile loop and do a couple of laps and clock in right around 100 feet of gain per mile.
