Mixed maintenance: At least 7 areas of tidal over wash from 40 feet to 200 feet in distance with some washouts reducing trail to one lane rut. The size of the gravel used for maintenance is too large: 2" rocks were common.
Beautiful run, Sunny, 58°. Parked Free outside Ft Pulaski , ran 3.5 out n back. Flat, mud, dirt, gravel. Water was low tide on both sides of trail.
Hubby and I biked from Isle of Hope to Norwood tavern and then down Central Rd. to pick up this trail. There are some tricky road crossings, but the lights work in your favor. The path itself was really nice! Smooth divided concrete down to Bacon Park and around Lake Myers then back again. We continued on following Harry S Truman highway, but the path remained insulated from the highway noise and very shady! Once we reached Derenne, we turned around since the path was going to end soon. I hope they decide to extend this trail to Deleseps St.
Awesome ride for all skill levels.
We love it! shady and paved ¿
Nice wide concrete path through “trunnels” (tree tunnels), residential areas and commercial areas. We we’re camped 10 miles north of the northern end at Clarendon Park and used that parking several times. This end goes through a kind of rough neighborhood and some locals hangout in the park! The other place we parked was at the Publix grocery store on Robert Smalls Parkway about middle of the trail. There’s a concrete path that goes right over to the trail on the right end of the store with ample parking. The trail crosses several narrow lol
Even though they are 4 lines of traffic, 2 for pedestrians and 2 for cyclists, the pedestrians don’t pay attention and often wander or intentionally move in to the bike lines. I ran in to a jogger in the wrong lane going downhill, I had my hands on the breaks, but there was no avoiding this collision and I know I am not the only one who has had this problem.
If I were local, I would rate much higher. However as a person that has traversed Many trails I have to give this trail a low rating. As a local person, this is a nice trail. However, compared to other trails, it is lacking. Directions to the various trailheads is a zero. I could not find the Port Royal trailhead because there is one. So I went to the northern most near Beaufort and headed south. The scenery is a 3. When you get to Port Royal the trail apparently ends. However, it is paved to the left and a sign indicates 2 miles to go But payment ends and there are no more signs. i Qent T Lacking Tonother trails A Local it is a nice trail A Low rating. has
12’ wide, smooth concrete for 10+ miles. WOW. Easy, leisurely ride. Beautiful and interesting points of interest. We’re very glad we made this choice.
we started at broome lane parking lot (small - but had a bathroom) - rode right almost to the end - turned around and went back all the way and then retraced the mile or so back to broome lane - very lovely ride - just about 17 miles - some very scenic sections - the middle of the ride had a couple of busy/traffic-lighted intersections (no worries if you're careful) and a bit that was right next to the highway - but the pros way out-weighed the cons - good ride - would do it again if ever in the area again - just for those who are interested in the value of rails to trails in your town - we rode here and then spent the night / ate / spent money in beaufort ... RTT do bring economic gain to their host towns !!
pro’s: I love when towns invest in trails, especially as a biker who likes to explore. This trail is a cement, flat path which is nice for easy going. For cyclists, you can do an easy and safe out and back 20ish miles. There is a nice section at Depot Road where you can take a trip into Beaufort- highly suggest! Con’s: this is not a pretty, scenic trail. It goes through depressed areas, is often next to major roads and is littered w/trash.
February 16, 2023: Started in Beaufort at the parking lot near the Depot. A water fountain was working; port-a potty was nearby, on the north side. Trail in very good shape. Not crowded and roadways were easy to cross. Very friendly locals. Beautiful scenery and waterfowl. Fighter jets in the north taking off from the Marine Base. After completing the trail, we drove to the Fish Camp Restaurant a short distance away in Port Royal on the water front. Can walk out on the pier. Fresh shrimp and oysters cooked to perfection. We loved every minute of the ride and
