This might have been a trail 10 to 15 years ago, but with all the new home building in the last few years. It is now a sidewalk next to a busy street.

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

Swamp Rabbit Trail

March, 2017 by jimtalone

My son and I got on the trail at the YMCA and headed to downtown Greenville. We never got there. We got lost and wound up on streets four different times, a thing that never happened to me before. The tail is nice and the valley is pretty but the signage was confusing or non existent in many cases. It was also very hilly. This might be a great trail if you know where you are going but it was very difficult for us.

Highland Rail Trail

Highland Trail

March, 2017 by sbkolb

This has the potential to be better but right now, hardly worth it. Took longer to load and unload the bikes than it did to ride the trail and part of it is an overgrown, gravel path. Dead-ends at 321 (a very busy 4-6 lane highway) and no way to get across to Rankin Lake (a very nice park). Maybe, someday, the city will figure a way to cross 321 to get to the park.

Doodle Rail Trail

Clean and wide

February, 2017 by ivy_rea

I parked on fleetwood entrance and ran 5 miles on the trail and 5 miles back. The trail was very clean and looks very new. The scenery was okay. Mostly backyards of people's homes or businesses. I went at 7am on a Sunday so it was very peaceful and quiet. there were some slight elevations throughout the trail but manageable

Peavine Trail (NC)

Great for brisk walking!

December, 2016 by simbut1

Wide, smooth crushed gravel surface on level trail on old railroad bed. Great for brisk walking! Please do not pave this trail. We have many other paved trails in Marion, but no other resilient surface for 77 year old legs. Cudos to McDowell Trails Association and the City of Marion.

Thermal Belt Rail-Trail

Getting better each time!

December, 2016 by neverest

GREAT improvements to this trail, got to commend Rutherford Outdoor Coalition for their oversight & the Committee that helps guide the management for the future of the trail. New mile & 1/2 mile markers are great for those who want to keep up with their fitness goals. There are 4.5 miles of compacted gravel for hikers, runners, bikers & equestrians to be "in the country" and 3.5 miles (but more in the planning) of asphalt that access the more developed areas. Something for everyone and the BEST part is that its a project that the public can have input into & help make into their own!

Marcia H. Cloninger Rail-Trail

October, 2016 by mumasaurus

First of all, don't follow the posted direction. It's exit 17 off of I85. If you go to Aspen Street there is a city park with plenty of parking. Enjoyed the trail. The colours should be really pretty in about 2 more weeks. Stop for breakfast at Harvest Moon Grill.

Doodle Rail Trail

Love this trail

October, 2016 by cherylsaunders_tl

As an inline-skater, runner and cyclist, I use this trail at least once a week and I love it.

Just focusing on inline-skating. The trail is wider than the Swamp Rabbit and the paving is new and pretty solid. I find that the trail itself is kept pretty clean throughout the year (thank you to the caretakers). For non-skaters, a trail covered in leaves, twigs and stones is almost impossible to use on skates.

The hills are tough. There are long gradual gradients and shorter sharper gradients. The ups are a great workout, and the downs require the ability to control yourself on skates, and to slow and stop yourself safely.

There are road crossings. Some of these roads are busy and for some you don't have visibility until you hit the crossing. Again, knowing how to stop quickly and safely is needed.

Because of these challenging aspects of the trail, I don't go out without my helmet and wrist, elbow and knee guards. I have tumbled twice (slipped and quick stopped) and, thankfully, only have a couple scratches to show for it (knock on wood).

Comparing the three parking lots, Alice's Manufacturing and Easley are slightly off the trail, while Pickens isn't. You may need to put your skates on at the trail if you don't chose Pickens. For me, the easiest full ride starts at Alice's (heading toward Easley initially), followed by Easley end, then Pickens end. This is due to how tired I am when I hit the final hills.

When I started inline-skating last year (2015), I had previously hardly ever tried inline-skating and was not in great shape. It took me about 1 hr 50 min to complete the full 15+ miles (I worked up to the full distance). Now, a year later, it takes me less than 1 hr 20 min at my fastest. What this means to me is, I can probably skate the trail and keep up with my casual cyclist friends as they bike it, making inline skating a viable option for a group outing.

Doodle Rail Trail

Very nice trail

October, 2016 by niceman

Following the former rail line, the asphalt surface is very comfortable to ride, with some sections in the shade. There are gentle but very noticeable slopes. The endpoints of Pickens and Easley are about the same height, and there is about 400 feet of climb each way. It might be a workout on a single speed bike but easy to ride through on a multi speed bike.

One year on, the trail is still beautiful and well maintained. Also, they have added 3 Dero Fixit bike repair stations with air pumps and tools. So even if you forget a tool, you won't be completely stranded if something goes wrong.

There are some decent restaurants in both Easley and Pickens, with 1 restaurant (Auntie Ann's) not far from the Pickens end.
