Wanted to provide a more recent review. Rode most of the trail yesterday with my wife. It is well marked, well maintained and beautiful ride. The path is hard pack - not concrete or black top so it is not super smooth. There are several things to see and placards to read that explain the features of the old railroad. Also a cemetery from the 1700s and a fun tressel towards the end. The only negatives were that my wife thought there were too many roots. There are roots and I rode a mountain bike so I didn’t really notice them as ‘bad”. Also there is about a 2.5 mile section you have to ride on the road in the middle. It is a country road and traffic was lite and the cars were respectful of us and rode slowly around us. There were benches and picnic tables along the route if you wanted to stop and just sit for a while. We only saw 2 other people walking their dogs. It was a fun trail for novice riders not looking for single track. Enjoy -
Gave it 4 stars for being fairly well maintained and off the road in areas. This is a 4-6’ wide asphalt path combined with sidewalks on a fairly busy road. Yes it is safer than riding / running on side of road, but you still have to clear every intersection / business parking lots 3-4 ways before crossing….and there are a lot. If you want a scenic trail, this is not it. If you want a safe pathway to Savannah River Locks from Evans, this is a good alternative.
If you are lucky enough to regularly ride a horse, you are indeed a lucky person. If you are a horse person and have an opportunity to ride in Hitchcock Woods then you are a rarified rider for sure. The beauty, peace, depth and rare expanse of Hitchcock Woods is a place that defies description. Whether you walk/run or ride the trails of Hitchcock Woods I doubt you will find many places that will surpass its beauty. Trails by the names such as Devils backbone, Cathedral Aisle, Swampy Cut loop, Mrs. Allen’s ride and Lovers Lane in itself will entice any adventurer to step into this fairytale forest. You won’t be disappointed. Hitchcock woods is a rare gem, a preserved urban forest thanks to the Hitchcock families’ fore-site to maintain an equestrian ‘play ground’ for future generations.
Parts of it were very pretty, and overall pretty well maintained (but with a fair amount of roots in some areas). But about 1/3 of the 9 miles were on roads with no shoulder. Not busy roads, but not what we expected of a “rail trail”. Also a lot of spiderwebs on the trail.
Great trail. Listed as closed, figured that we would just be out the drive if it was closed. Could never figure out why it is listed that way. It is beautiful and well maintained.
The Levee trail can be added to the Augusta Canal trail starting at Savannah Rapids Park. it will be a multi-surface trail running mostly between the Savannah River and the Augusta Canal. The Levee trail will take you all the way to town and a short trail to the 13th street bridge. You can ride over the bridge and access the North Augusta Greeneway and river park. Jump off the trail at Hammonds Ferry and eat at one of their restaurants.
Beautiful trail for all ages of cyclists. Started at Bergen trailhead, but trail was closed at Cypress Road, so we had to turn around. Workers said they will be closing it all the way north to the bridge. Not sure how long work will take.
This trail was an easy ride with a great view. Rest and water stops were also along the way.
I really enjoy running on this trail, great view and challenging run. The trail is 7miles but I haven’t ran the hold 7 miles. Not familiar with the layout of the trail so I’ve only gone so far. If you enjoy running, walking, biking take time out to visit this trail.
Great addition to the walking and biking options in Columbia County. Lots of beautiful natural views while following the Euchre Creek. Family friendly stopping points and connections with many neighborhoods in the area.
This trail is great place for the serious runner to do time trials, which is probably why it is used for a few local races. It's mostly flat with only one incline. Some people are scared of running here because of a quarter mile stretch through a rough-looking neighborhood but after running here weekly for 18 years I've never had a problem. The surface is blacktop and has only a few small patches where freezing has caused the surface to heave up. I like to park near the fountain in uptown Greenwood and run the sidewalk south for a half mile until I hit the trail at the railroad museum. Alternatively, I like to park at the end at Florida Avenue. You can tack on extra mileage by running through Mathews Mill Village or around uptown Greenwood. There is a water fountain near Howard's on Main, just a few hundred yards of the fountain. I wish the city and county cared more about this trail and maintained it regularly - they only seem to pay attention to it before the Festival of Flowers in June.
I run on this trail regularly. There are good places to park at the western end of the trail, near the depot, and at the Boozer Complex playing fields. The trail is mostly covered with grass and gravel now but if you run slowly it's pretty good. If you don't mind running on the road a good way to extend the run is to continue on the asphalt surface past the Boozer Complex, cross route 34 and then go down Eddy Road where there is very little traffic. There is a restroom at the Boozer Complex and a water fountain that sometimes works.
