I haven't found much dirt close to the lake. Re expanding to the West, did you see the GPX file in post #13 that goes all the way to Abbeville? There's also some dirt in the branch of the Sumter National Forest starting just North of Newberry, too, though it's not in that GPX file. With just a half-day time frame, Manchester State Forest would be doable, or part of the MEOW & Ridge Spring loop.
Have fun! I was going to do some of the Ridge Spring Loop after the state lunch
in Aiken on Saturday, but people are getting sick and right now the lunch either might not happen or else get moved to Charleston.
