The Biggin Creek Bike Trail was made possible through a partnership between the Town of Moncks Corner and Santee Cooper, the support of its many volunteers who work to improve and maintain the trail and Mr. Rusty Smith, whose vision and hard-work built this trail.
The Biggin Creek Bike Trail, located off of Rembert C. Dennis Boulevard, was developed for mountain bikers, runners, and hikers. The following are based on International Mountain Bicycling Association guidelines and are recognized around the world as the standard code of conduct for mountain bikers. The mission is to promote mountain biking that is environmentally sound and socially responsible.
1. Ride Open Trails: Respect trail closures and stay on the clearly defined trails. From time to time after heavy rains, trails may be closed to minimize damage to them. Unauthorized construction or alteration of trails is prohibited. Please contact the Town of Moncks Corner (843-719-7900) with trail questions.
2. Leave No Trace: Be sensitive to the dirt beneath you and the environment around you. Wet and muddy trails are more vulnerable to damage than dry ones. When the trail is soft, consider other riding options. This also means staying on existing trails and not creating new ones. Don't cut switchbacks. Don't ride around standing water which results in widening the trail. Be sure to pack out all trash. Littering, drugs, alcohol, firearms, ATVS and other motorized vehicles are prohibited.
3. Control Your Bicycle: This trail contains steep sections and natural obstacles that include rocks, trees and roots. Inattention for even a moment could put yourself and others at risk. Obey all signs and ride within your limits.
4. Yield Appropriately: Do your utmost to let your fellow trail users know you're coming — a friendly greeting or bell ring are good methods. Try to anticipate other trail users as you ride around corners. Mountain bikers should yield to other trail users. Bicyclists should ride in the opposite direction from runners and hikers according to the posted schedule. Bicyclists traveling downhill should yield to all users headed uphill. In general, strive to make each pass a safe, controlled and courteous one.
5. Never Scare Animals: Animals are easily startled by an unannounced approach, a sudden movement or a loud noise. Give animals enough room and time to adjust to you.
Plan Ahead: Know your equipment, your ability and the area in which you are riding and prepare accordingly. Strive to be self-sufficient: keep your equipment in good repair and carry necessary supplies for changes in weather or other conditions. Always wear a helmet and appropriate safety gear
