Poinsett State Park is a must!
If there is one group of people with BIG goals, it’s Midlands SORBA and the Poinsett State Park Staff. With the goal of 50 miles that encompasses a backcountry flow feeling, this club definitely has the momentum and power to make these trails happen. To prove it, his weekend out at Poinsett, with over 30 volunteers, we laid down 1400 feet of brand new bench cut single track, and it is beautiful trail for that matter!
There is Spanish Moss that is draped on and through the trees along side the trail. It acts as the perfect accent to fall trail building and adds a special beauty to the trail. I can tell that Poinsett Mountain biking will flourish in Fall weather! Poinsett has plenty more to offer as well! They are the 2nd oldest state Park in South Carolina and the park was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps back in the 1930s with rustic cabins from the same era. While visiting, watch out for the local alligator when riding around the lake, and be sure to check out the office that was built with local Coquina Stone from a nearby mine!
We want to send out a special thanks to Steve Masone and the Midlands SORBA chapter folks for making this weekend possible. Also, a BIG thanks to Zabo McCants and the Poinsett State Park staff for being accommodating and willing to do whatever needed be done this weekend! Finally, to all the volunteers who came out on a Saturday to build some really awesome trail!
