McQueen's Island Trail

The Trail Has Reopened!

July, 2022 by 4c6mtjbn5d

My husband and I walked the trail and returned after a few days with our bikes. The only entrance is at the Fort Pulaski gate area. The last mile of the trail is still being cleared, however, we had no problem riding our bikes to the end.

Spanish Moss Trail

Outstanding trail in Beaufort SC

June, 2022 by davidmsr

Beautiful, scenic, flat, with wide smooth concrete trail with some shade and great views. Not many other riders or people on the trail on a Saturday in mid June. Plenty of trailheads and parking, but few restrooms on trail (plenty of gas stations, convenience stores just off trail) Some newer hotels actually on the trail as it passes close to Hwy 21. Worth the trip if you’re in the Savannah area

McQueen's Island Trail

still closed as of May 2022

May, 2022 by jacvaughn

The main section is almost done. Hopefully they open it this summer and close off only the section that still needs repairs (from the curve to Elba island).

My husband and I spent the first day of the new year here enjoying being in nature. Beautiful views and we saw a lot of wild birds.

Spanish Moss Trail

New Beaufort must!

December, 2021 by risantol1

We parked along Bay View and jumped on our bicycles heading southwest thru Depot Rd taking the trail south passing by the train station and riding about 3 more miles. The trail is flat, clean and beautiful views! Easy level, perfect for families that just want to have fun biking. I hope Beaufort extends it through more neighborhoods.

Spanish Moss Trail

closed at mile 5

October, 2021 by dsmtrdtuner

10/9/21 Trail was closed near mile 5. Could see a truck and bulldozer. First time riding this trail and had no prewarning that it was closed. Will try it again one day.

Spanish Moss Trail

Lovely Trail

August, 2021 by kingdome

I rode this trail 11 May 2021 on my Catrike. At that time there was no construction on the trail itself although it appeared that there may have been some minor work being done on one of the trailhead parking areas on the southern end. The trail is absolutely delightful. Super smooth, the trail is a full 12 feet wide with a nice center lane marking for the full length of the trail. The only bump on the entire trail was in the bottom of an underpass where there was a length of grating to allow drainage. They could have done a better job of matching the heights on that!
I was staying at a B&B on Bay Street about a mile from the Depot so that is where I got on the trail, by biking from my home away from home. Hitting the trail I headed north until I ran out of trail, then reversed course until I ran out of trail on the southern end, then reversed again back to my starting point at the Depot. By the time I got back to the B&B my GPS told me I had gone just over 25 miles., I didn’t see many military jets while on the trail but I certainly heard them. The trail goes quite close to Merrit Field, a Marine Corps Air Station, and they are quite active.

West Ashley Greenway
