I was visiting my parents at a nearby city and saw this trail listed. I hopped on it on the southern end in Forest City at mile 13.6 and road to the trailhead in Gilkey and back. It was a fantastic ride and nice to see that it is completely paved and lots of places to stop and admire. I plan on coming backs after spring to enjoy the trail in full bloom!
One of Greenville’s best points of interest, I ride it often and every time I make new friends. Absolutely beautiful trail and it has so much to offer!! Hopefully the rail bed from Campobello SC through historical Landrum SC and TRYON NC to Saluda NC will come to fruition soon. That would be amazing!! ¿¿
Excellent trail. Best time to ride is during the week.
There are some older reviews on here that are no longer accurate. The trail is paved from end to end. It is also well maintained as witnessed by me following guys pulling a leaf blower behind their parks Dept ATV.
Decently maintained. Gorgeous views. There’s a spot with some art work painted on the ground (near the cemetery). Both trailheads have bathrooms and a park. Few bumpy areas where ya definitely want two hands on the “wheel.”
This trail has a lot of potential but it needs to be updated. The asphalt has so many buckles and is dangerous because many people have tripped and fallen. The bridge has been closed for over a year with no promise of upgrades. Therefore one begins on the trail then gets on a road for half a mile and back on trail.
A pretty straightforward rail trail that is paved, is kept up so there are no unpleasant bumps, and has parking at either end.
Much of it is well-shaded, and the scenery is nice.
It has more road crossings than some others, but there is likely no way to change that. Also 8 miles is not super long compared to some others.
I drove a little out of my way driving from Charlotte to Atlanta & may make the same stop in the future as I drive that regularly.
This is a relatively easy out and back totaling about 10 miles. I started on the south end and parked in the church parking lot just across the street from the trail head. Trailhead marked with signs and easy to find. There are a couple of hazardous street crossings. Even when using the pedestrian crossing buttons be very alert and cautious because the A-holes there either are not aware that turning vehicles are supposed to yield to pedestrians or they don’t cate.Do not attempt this ride on a road bike.The last 2 miles are on gravel and dirt trails.ordon’tthatca
Very pleasant trail (bike riders). Was bumpy but would take that for asphalt any day. A little narrower than others but still very doable. Excellent scenery and moderate rise and falls. Will definitely do this again! 4.5 stars.
I loved the winding nature and the beautiful scenery! Only downside was very bumpy areas where the pavement came up. But loved the ride!
I have not written a mountain bike in well over 20 years, and I wanted to start riding again because it’s less traumatic on my knees. Came out to give this trail a check today, and I have to say it is fantastic! A few Hills that’ll make you work a little bit, but a lot of it is flat with excellent scenery, all in all a very nice ride!!
Great ride. Very well maintained trail. Beautiful scenery. There were a couple shady areas that I rode through and felt a little on edge. But could just be me!
