Thermal Belt Rail-Trail

Great Ride

July, 2020 by captbillhall

Ride the full length and back. Great scenery on the northern end. Quaint towns on the southern.

Doodle Rail Trail

Nice ride

July, 2020 by nja652

This ride was nice. Some good scenery with farm land. Trail is well maintained and good for biking and walking/jogging. The hills are long and gradual and can be a little difficult at times. All in all a great trail for a good workout.

Doodle Rail Trail

good hills

July, 2020 by kholbent

Enjoyed the country setting and the challenge of some hills. Beautiful scenery and marked well once you get on it. Had some trouble finding the start but met some locals so NBD. Fun ride!

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

fun ride

July, 2020 by kholbent

Super fun ride with a lot scenery changes. Stop at the ST Grocery and Cafe for some local food. Only minor improvements needed are a few pavement issues from roots (need to marked or repaired) and better signage in some areas. It was a great day!

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

Southern Portion is NOT GOOD

July, 2020 by johnsonlydia

Poorly marked and poorly paved in multiple portions.

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

Worth the trip

June, 2020 by marke71116

Drove from Charlotte and cycled from Cleveland Park to Travelers Rest. Not particularly crowded on a Friday a generally everyone considerate of passing edicate. Pavement is a little bumpy in places but overall an enjoyable 22.7 mile ride.

Oklawaha Greenway

Oklawaha Greenway under Construction

June, 2020 by tom193

This trail was a big disappointment. The southern most section (about 1/3 of the total trail) was all torn up, with mud, course construction gravel and rough construction plates making this section almost un-passable. And then the trail abruptly stops, with absolutely no way to continue. After we made our way back to the parking lot, we packed up up our bikes, and headed to the northern section, which was nice - but too short to drive 2 hours to ride it.

BTW: The address for parking (763 Glover Street) does not exist. We had to ask passersby to find where to park. Disappointed in TrailLink.

P.S. We didn't see anyone working on the trail, so check with someone in the know before visiting.

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

I come this way twice a year and make it a point on our way back to PA to ride this trail. The scenery and cites are great. There are bike shops along the route which is nice. Recommend this trail to anyone .The people here always nice too.

Thermal Belt Rail-Trail

warm and welcoming

June, 2020 by donnabailey657

We had a wonderful time on the Thermal trail. A bear, 2 snakes and friendly bikers welcomed us. Some areas of shade have us rest from the sun. We will certainly ride again in the fall.

Point Lookout Trail

Nice trail to bike/walk.

May, 2020 by timfisher58

We tore it up on the ebikes. No more struggling for me.
