Three Rivers Greenway

no thru access

November, 2017 by noblemuse

trail in need of repair as there are a few places that are barricaded off and so impossible to ride the trail. Please post this on site for future trail riders who will not be frustrated and disappointed with their attempt to ride the full 8plus miles. Thanks

Augusta Canal Trail

The best in this area!

September, 2017 by genedalton1

The canal on one side, continuously, and the Savannah River fall on the other side (off and on some of the way), what could be better. Mostly hard-packed clay and light gravel; some disintegrating asphalt and cinder. Occasional mud ruts after hard rains, but usually repaired quickly. Lush in the spring, and beatiful in the fall. Mostly no grade at all; originally the canal tow path. Two prime and one sub-prime, spots to stop and take a dip, one on the Savannah, the other on a canal offshoot; and one near the canal dam. You could even ride up and kayak down. Seriously. I live here and the paved Noth Augusta Greenway is my second favorite, but go-to ride. Both are about 10-12 miles round trip, depending on add-ones. Great close parking at Lake Olmstead off Broad and Millegeville Rds. Cross the wooden bridge, go left and 5 miles later you're at the Canal dam and north-west end of the trail. Worth a stop and soaking in in God's great scenery (to quote my daughter at age 6; not that we're all that pious, but "out of the mouths of babes..."

North Augusta Greeneway Park

Walking the Greeneway

May, 2017 by mparrishm1

I begun walking the Greeneway December of 2012 because that was when I got Sadie my dog, buddy and friend. We have walked several parts of the trail, and I find it all beautiful! My favorites are the places where the trees reach toward each other overhead, The only negative issues for me are bikers that pass with no warning and a shortage of restrooms, so I choose sections of the trail where a restroom is near, and I walk facing the bikers to avoid surprises. I really appreciate the Greeneway Trail, and I am glad I live in North Augusta, SC!

North Augusta Greeneway Park

Outstanding scenic trail

January, 2017 by freakdom2003

Rode the entire length of the trail twice it was exhilarating both mentally and physically. The paved surface enables a smooth ride. The only downside was the amount of other patrons who were standing in the middle of the path. Look forward to my next opportunity to ride the trail and it future extension.

Vista Greenway

Pleasant fall walk

October, 2016 by hwrightson

We enjoyed the walk. There was a lot of kudzu near Elmwood but also colorful morning glories blooming on the side. We saw several species of butterflies and birds. We added on loops in Finlay Park and Memorial Park to make it longer. The long tunnel was well lit and there was a callbox in the middle for safety. When we realized where we were in the Vista at the end - we had to stop for Cupcakes.

Augusta Canal Trail

love trail

July, 2016 by madel_mun

Nice scenery, friendly people love the change on foliage from spring to summer to autumn. Get to see lots if turtles sunbathing and the occasional beavers. Very good for family outing or by yourself

Augusta Canal Trail

A real gem

July, 2016 by yorgos05

Walking, biking, or running, from the trailhead at the locks down to Lake Olmstead and beyond, this trail is a must visit.

North Augusta Greeneway Park

More than just the North Augusta Greeneway Park

April, 2016 by tinasdude

The trail ends right near the 13th street bridge going over the savannah river into Augusta. Cross the bridge and ride approximately 1 1/2 miles to Augusta canal trail which runs between the canal and the savannah river. http://www.traillink.com/trail/augusta-canal-trail.aspx. While on the SC side stop at Manuel's Bread Cafe. A short distance from the river loop on the Greeneway with nice shaded outdoor seating. http://manuelsbreadcafe.com/. Combining the 2 trails makes for a nice ride.

Savannah Valley Railroad Trail

SVRT Trail is Great

April, 2016 by wufpk

The trail now has about 9 miles of trail open and maintained. There are parking places in several of the trailhead entrances that are also marked with trail kiosk signs. Along the trail are rest benches, picnic tables and the trail has mile markers every half-mile. The Railroad Trestle over water has been refurbished, has a picnic table and is in use - it is about 1/2 mile from the parking area on Route 7. Just about the whole trail goes thru forest so it is shaded in warmer weather. All in all it is an enjoyable walk or bike ride with access to some historical sites.
