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
I came here for a morning run and was very pleased with how scenic the trail was. Some parts are still under construction and is not suitable for biking. Also, try to get here before 9am and you don’t have to pay any entrance fees. Also, only the south entrance is accessible.
Best at west end of trail. Marshes and trees. The crossing posts are very tight. Easy to hit handle bars. They need to lower the center lower posts below handle bar level. Should consider extending the west end of the trail.
Felt safe - earlier post of safety issues may have been solved.
The trail is very scenic,Still in a state of disrepair with weeds.One bridge has already started to re wash out.The recent repairs with the gravel has made some parts more like a trail run.No restrooms or port a John.
Gravel trail with lots of debris ends at 5.4 miles unable to go farther bridges in disrepair did run in to 2 gentlemen who said the one bridge would be repaired in about a week and therefore trail closed at that point Definitely a work out for me
My husband and I loved it! Beautiful marsh scenery and easy riding. We did not complete the entire thing but came pretty close.
Paved and well marked. Several benches set up along the route for relaxing and viewing the tidal creeks and wildlife. Bathrooms are just a few port-a-potties set up….so plan accordingly. We ride the trail and then ride the city streets down to Waterfront Park and marina. These streets are wide with speed limit of 30MPH.
I love the historic markers. It’s fun to see the locals fishing on the trestles. The marsh is beautiful. I rode from beginning to end and back!
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.
