If you want serious uphill and downhill hiking, mountains style then Columbia probably doesn't have that.. Because there are no mountains. There are an assortment of options. You don't know unless you ride out there and hike it. What is a good and enjoyable trail to you, or a good hike?
the Great Falls Park near DC, Monte Sano mountain in Huntsville AL, Gambrill State Park in Frederick MD, that kind of thing.

Sesquicentennial has peaks and valleys. In one place on one of the trails you'd swear you were in the mountains in a deep crevice.

The Sandhills area remind me of the dunes at the beach which isn't really a desire place to hike.
Have your parents threatened to cut you off if you move?

No, they live on Sullivan's island in a mansion. They fund me wherever I go, although when I decide to work, which I see as volunteerring and giving back to society that has blessed me, I don't ask that much from them.

See! ClemTiger, all that you want right there. Using some of your wording and syntax in past posts, I'll say this, "I just feel that Sesquicentennial has just as much, probably more than those other places that you've been to. I think and feel like you'd like Sesquicentennial more". Check it out man and let us know what you think.

If I show you a really cool Ice cream place downtown, you wanna buy me some ice cream using your parents funds? I didn't get much ice cream as a kid... Stingy parents. Then we can go check out Finlay Park!

Lol right on, thanks for the honest remark. That's actually not the first time I've heard that today.

There's some. I'm honestly not impressed at all with what Sesqui has to offer as far as hiking, but I also grew up near Huntsville in the mountains, so what I consider "hiking" is very nearly impossible to find here. The trails from the Riverbanks Gardens down to and alongside the river are pretty nice, if a little short, but for the most part it sounds like what you're looking for, you won't find here.

that's my impresson too, Huntsville is great for hiking. That town doesn't get a lot of PR but it really is a nice place to live.
