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.
