Swamp Rabbit Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The nearly 20-mile Swamp Rabbit Trail links the cities of Travelers Rest and Greenville in upstate South Carolina via a former railroad corridor. Beginning in the north at Tate Road in Travelers Rest, the trail passes the North Greenville Medical campus of the Greenville Hospital System as it continues south through the community's downtown. Eventually, the trail enters downtown Greenville, following the Reedy River to Greenville Tech on Cleveland Street.

The trail is officially known as the Greenville Hospital System (GHS) Swamp Rabbit Trail due to a generous $1 million contribution from the local healthcare provider to help develop and publicize the trail. Varying from 8 to 12 feet wide, the trail features a paved surface for bicycles, skaters and walkers, with an additional rubberized surface for runners. Amenities along the trail include lighting, picnic areas, benches, water fountains, restrooms, signage and bicycle racks. Views of the Reedy River are plentiful throughout the trail.

This is hands down, one of the best trails in upstate SC and western NC. It runs from Travelers Rest to the Greenville zoo. I don't like the Greenville zoo area as well. Very crowded but still enjoyable. Goes right by Furman University and can bike around ...read more

Since I rode it last, Swamp Rabbit has been extended about a mile northward. It's just that much better. Shows what a community can do. Thanks. read more

Magellan would be challenged finding his way from the Greenville Zoo to the trail. Whoever developed signage should be drug tested. Really, this is a highly amp'dtrail in a great city. Paint on the road would go a long way. read more
