Blue ORV Trail Dirt Biking

Southwest of Sumter and south of Wedgefield, the 23,000 acre Manchester State Forest has 100 miles of road and trails through flowering mountain laurel and red cedar that are open to dirt biking.

The Blue OHV Trail (7.8 miles) is one of three loops in the Manchester Forest that wind through a mixture of forest, open, area, and some wetland. You will be guided by arrows, which indicate turns and direction of travel. Although basically a lowland area, there are enough small hills to make your ride exciting. The trail surface is a mixture of dirt and sand.

To reach the trailhead from Sumter head west on US 76 for 10 miles. Go south on SR 261 for 12.7 miles.

Veer right on Sumter County S-51 (toward Rimini). The entrance to the parking is approximately 0.6 miles on the left side.

Here are milages for the different color coded trails shown on the map:

Red 9.6 miles

Blue 7.8 miles
