# 9 - Hike the Biggin
5.0 miles, round-trip, loop
The Biggin Creek Trail was primarily developed
for mountain bikers, but is open and encouraged for
use by hikers and trail runners. This trail offers a lot
for the family adventurer. It's one of the few trails in
the area with lots of elevation change. You'll hike
countless small, and sometimes steep hills with
roots, stumps and other obstacles. The hike stops
by the namesake, beautiful Biggin Creek. You may
see egrets, herons, turtles and alligators. The best
part: this fun adventure is located in the heart of
the town of Moncks Corner, the county seat.
Distance: 5.0 miles, round-trip, loop.
Time: 2 - 2.5 hours.
Trail Surface: Mostly narrow "single" track, dirt, lots of roots.
Crowds: Varies from light to heavy. Designed for and popular with mountain bikers. Heavy use on the weekends.
Fees/Permits: None. The town will close the trail for a couple days after heavy rains to prevent erosion and damage to the trail.
Restrooms: Yes. Portable toilet at the trailhead.
Precautions: Biting insects can be formidable in warmer months. Bring insect repellent. This trail was built for mountain bikers but hikers and trail runners are encouraged to use it too. Be on the look out for (sometimes fast moving) bikers. Everyone is usually courteous and will yield to hikers. Watch your footing; there are many roots on the trail.
