# 9 - Ultimate Gravel 20
-Rediversion Canal & the Flats
20.6 miles, round-trip
Bike Lake Moultrie's scenic Rediversion
Canal, atop water impoundments and
on a charming forest service road for the
ultimate gravel/dirt 20-miler. You're likely
to see osprey, egrets, herons and the
occasional alligator. The panoramic
vistas alone are worth the effort! The
-non-paved route is appropriate for
nearly any bike and cyclist. In warmer
-months, you can even visit the Sandy
-Beach Waterfowl Area. Pack a sense of
-adventure and ride the Low Country's
-ultimate 20 mile gravel trail.
