    New question here. Vacationing near Maughan Trail, Seneca, SC, what's around there?

    Title says it all, I'm going to be spending a week down there and wondering if its worth bringing my bike. Is there any places to ride nearby? Would like to keep it under a 45min-hour drive. Thanks.

    Issaqueena is at Clemson. Not too far from Seneca.

    There is also a trail just over the Ga. border called Paynes Creek. I've never ridden but gets good reviews for a fast flowy trail.

    Here's a little review I found.

    Any of you guys familiar with Dupont forest? Looks like its a 1.5 hour drive, lots of trails. I've been looking for maps, but it seems easy to get lost in there. Wheres a good place to start off, looking to keep it to easy/moderate trails. Don't need to crash too hard.

    Dupont is pretty fun, but yeah, I was confused the first time too. You can grab trail maps (or buy a better one) at the local shops. I had good luck with the guys at Sycamore Cycles. The trails are well marked, so just have your map handy and be prepared to stop at intersections to get your bearings.

    Google search 3189 Staton Rd, Hendersonville, NC and follow the road a little south. You'll see a small road (on the maps) or the gravel lot (on satellite view). That is the Lake Imaging parking lot. Its a healthy climb out of the parking lot, but you get rewarded on the way back.

    This was a fun loop I did. Ridgeline is a blast going down.

    Clemson is 15 minutes away and Paynes creek 45 to an hour. Both would be worth your time. In the back of Issaqueena in the DH course which is pretty cool as well. Bring the bike. You won't regret it.

    Paynes Creek is basic but a whole lot of fun. Google Issaqueena trails and that will get you the Clemson stuff Bring bikes and have fun.
