Doodle Rail Trail

Beautiful and filled with hills

September, 2022 by eyecandy29611

I absolutely enjoyed every mile of this trail on my blades. The scenery was absolutely gorgeous. There were plenty of bikers and walkers out on a Monday morning 8-9am. As an in-line skater this trail is not for beginners if you’re not comfortable with stopping & navigating debris. I’m no pro myself so it was convenient to have grassy areas to walk in when I wasn’t comfortable to skate.

Thermal Belt Rail-Trail

Favorite Rail Trail in Western NC

August, 2022 by jwill77nc2_tl

We love this trail - it is our “go-to” when we want to get a good ride and enjoy the area. The trail passes through a number of great towns that have wonderful places to stop and eat along the way. We typically park in Spindale, which is about the midpoint of the trail. There is plenty of free parking there and things to see after your ride.

Thermal Belt Rail-Trail

Great Place to Learn

July, 2022 by rbruington63

Took my wife, daughter and granddaughter for an afternoon ride. It is a great place to teach a new cyclist the “Rules of the Trail”, learn the inner workings of how to gear up and down, as well as seeing a range of wildlife, from turtles to Deer (momma and baby).

River Birch Trail

Great addition to Spartanburg’s “Dan” trail system

June, 2022 by gwpurinton

The River Birch trail is a welcome addition to the Daniel Morgan trail system. Currently about a mile long from the bridge on Sydnor to the bridge on East Main Street. Will eventually connect to a section currently under construction through Whites Mill neighborhood. This will connect the River Birch trail to Drayton, essentially tripling the amount of trail and greatly increasing pedestrian and bike access.

Thermal Belt Rail-Trail

A Fun Ride

May, 2022 by gary.kirkland

Is Spindale a great name for a trailhead town or what? We started there, went south to Forest City, then all the way north to Gilkey, finishing back in Spindale. This gave us the shady north section coming and going in the hottest part of the day. The nicest things about this trail were all the people who were using it, and the variety of people enjoying it. One of the smoothest trails I have ever ridden.

Thermal Belt Rail-Trail

Great exercise

May, 2022 by maddoxfour

The very beginning in Gilkey, NC to Ruth, NC and then from Harris parking to Forest City are the bests parts of this 13.5 stretch of trail. The parts in middle are mostly Urban and I did see that the maintainers of the Rails to trail are working diligently trying to clean up some sections along with working with businesses along the trail to make it more appealing. We just need more business to step up and do their part. They have their work cut out for them just pass Spindale, NC to the Harris Street parking in Forest City, NC

Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail

it’s a jewel, but…

April, 2022 by rputnamnc

…we had plans to ride from Reedy River to Travelers Rest and back. Great parking garage right near the park and trail. Really a great setup for walking the dog and other activities. Tons of restaurants, bars and shops near downtown. That said, I won’t make another attempt at riding this trail again on a Saturday. Way, way too crowded with people for me to feel comfortable riding, and one road crossing on a high speed road that I loathed. Honestly, if you can handle the crowds, you will love it. It’s one of the best things about Greenville and more confident riders can easily build a fun weekend around it.

Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail

Absolutely Superb in Every Way!

April, 2022 by thejake91739

In our attempt to ride our bikes in all fifty states, we decided on the Swamp Rabbit for our South Carolina achievement. We had optimistic expectations for this highly regarded trail, and we were not let down!

We stayed in a Hampton Inn directly across the trail in Travelers Rest. This was a great location not only for jumping on the trail and pedaling the ten miles to Greenville, but to also take advantage of the charming Main Street of Travelers Rest.

With the thermometer reading forty-two degrees at the outset of our early morning ride in a late March, these two Southern Californians braved the cold to enjoy the beautiful ride through the woods toward Greenville. The trail was fairly flat, smooth, and being taken advantage of by locals out for their early morning walks and jogs.

The highlight for me was reaching downtown Greenville and experiencing the Reedy River and its falls area. Greenville has done a superb job around the falls with exquisite architecture, art installations, and landscaping to enhance the enjoyment of the Reedy Falls area. We continued on for a couple more miles as far as the zoo. It was worth it for more river, art, and beautiful landscape views.

Even though we were in a downtown area, we felt totally safe. Lots of extremely friendly locals, tourists, and families were enjoying the falls, gardens, and trails. This is certainly a destination trail not to be missed. Kudos to Prisma Health for financing and developing this trail and to Greenville and Travelers Rest for maintaining this exceptional trail!

Five star trail condition....4 stars scenery.

April, 2022 by gordorad

Great smooth wide trail. 5 big stars for trail condition. This is definitely more of an "urban trail", so those seeking nature will not be very pleased. Although the south end and north end is wooded, most of the trail is along a highway and then through a couple small towns. Very easy pleasant ride, with only a couple "dangerous" road crossings....(a couple of them are a bit blind).

Brevard Bike Path

Actually two trails!

March, 2022 by locobill49

I rode this for he first time today. Started at the north end and the first 1.3 miles was gravel pathway along a river. Very pretty but would not recommend for a street type bike. Once I crossed the highway at Lowes, it was paved the remainder. I didn’t get to the end because I actually lost the way with a mile to go. No signs pointing the way on the paved portion, which would have been nice.. The highlight was stopping at Oskar Blues Brewery on the way back.

Nice combination of urban/rural

February, 2022 by woodencanoe1

Drove up to Spindale, NC from Greenville, SC to ride the Thermal Belt Trail. Well worth the drive! Rode from mile 9 up to mile 0, then back. Nice combination of urban and rural. Especially enjoyed the Bechtler Mint park around mile 2. Will definitely be back, and will ride all of it.
