West Ashley Greenway

A great non-road running option!

February, 2017 by rwmcnutt

Note: This trail is less than 8 miles long (one way) from the trail markers on this map, not the 10.5 listed.

But other than that, it is a well maintained and easy to run on path/trail. Yes, the first few miles are paved and you cross a number of roads starting from the east. And yes, there are some less scenic sections, but you also run through absolutely beautiful lowcountry marsh/water settings. I highly recommend giving it a try.

Spanish Moss Trail

not so fast

January, 2017 by emanuel.waddell

This is a decent trail mostly flat and incomplete on both ends...yes there are some scenic views along with some "eye sores"...

Johns Island End - tranquil/peaceful

December, 2016 by askrickysmith

I walk often at the south end of the trail. Turn by railroad viaduct and go under bridge and drive toward metal buildings. Peaceful and great views of water/marsh and all types of birds.

Not safe

Not a trail to feel safe.

Great walk

November, 2016 by j_nlewis

The Greenway is awesome. The last thing they need to do is blacktop it. For those who were disappointed it did not have bathrooms or a café, please take yourself and your disappointment back to where you came from. The whole idea of this trail is to get people away from those things! My dog and I walk it every Saturday/Sunday morning and we both enjoy the quiet and beauty of every mile.

Spanish Moss Trail

Trail has extended

September, 2016 by michelepennington

Each morning, my husband and I enjoy the 20+ mile (round trip) from Port Royal area to the Burton area, which extends now well beyond the MCAS. We love cheering on the F-35 fighter jets ocassionally, while they practice overhead! We call those "The Freedom Days". The small bridge has been constructed to maneuver you around to the stoplight at the MCAS, and it is beautiful, amazing craftsmanship. Can't wait to discover the next phase of our Lowcountry trail. Thank you!!

McQueen's Island Trail

Leave the traffic jam, park & bike the trail

September, 2016 by maplover2

Crushed gravel surface is packed down nicely in most places. It's deep where freshly applied. Ample shoulder parking on 80 allows you to get out of traffic, park, and hop onto trail quickly at the Midway point. Bike 3 miles East or 3 miles west and connect to all the trails at Fort Pulaski, $7 entrance fee required.
Ocean breezes and Palms create a little shade. Trail includes several small bridges over estuaries, shade stops, benches and trash cans. Nearest refreshment is 1 mile East at Coco's Sunset Grill. Hopefully trail connectivity coming soon until then ride the shoulder of 80 to get there.

Spanish Moss Trail

Hands down the best trail in the low country

September, 2016 by bluebirdsoflove

The SMT is beautiful and a total pleasure to ride. Scenic views at every point in the trail. You couldn't ask for a nicer and safer place to ride.

West Ashley Greenway

Great trail, not too crowded

May, 2016 by mksurfin7

I used to ride this trail every day. It is nice and wide and not too crowded, so you rarely have to tell people to move over. The first several miles from South Windmere are paved, then the rest is a sort of compacted earth with some sparse gravel that is absolutely perfect for hybrid or mountain bike tires, but fine for road bikes too as long as it is dry. I just road it with 700x25 tires and it wasn't too bumpy. Though road crossings are pretty frequent for the first few miles from windmere, they become less frequent and there is generally very little traffic to contend with anyway. Once you get closer to the Main Road end, you go through nice woods sections, an open farm section, and then a gorgeous marsh area that is hard to explain but definitely worth the trek.

McQueen's Island Trail

Still under repair, but nice trail

April, 2016 by genuinegirl

I've run on this trail a couple of times since early 2015. There has been construction at 2.25 miles from the Fort Pulaski parking area since then. You can navigate around and keep on running, and navigate around the other blocked construction area (at your own risk, not too reckless) - however, it will be nice when this construction is completed so you can get a full 6+ miles one way run.

Scenic, gravel/shell trail material makes for a nice run/walk. Everyone I've seen on the trail is courteous and friendly, which makes this a good trail.

A Good Rail Trail!

April, 2016 by jrstewart3

As stated by others, ignore bad reviews.

This is a typical, linear rail trail that originates in in an urban environment and will take you away from it.

We started behind the shopping center on Folly road, and went out about 7.5 miles. Starts out paved, then transistions to hard packed dirt and or gravel.

Street crossings are no big deal, and your bike fits through gates no problem.

We only turned back because we ran out of daylight, but we ended up at a beautiful tidal marsh. Just do it....

Spanish Moss Trail

Spanish Moss Trail

March, 2016 by cbeam

Beautiful paved trail over re-claimed rail bed. It is used actively by the locals for exercise and shortcuts to work and school. The main shortcoming is the lack of rest room facilities.
