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.

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!

Peak to Prosperity Passage (Palmetto Trail)

recommend highly

January, 2022 by rjxqbczqmk

We rode from Pomaria behind Wilsons grocery to Peak and back about 13 miles. Mostly small gravel a few spots still have larger gravel. Flat and very peaceful. Some tresses need some new boards but this is a very nice trail.

Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail

Only for casual activities

December, 2021 by brianikmc

This is a great trail for walkers and casual riders. As a moderately cyclist this was a disappointment. Only half of it is broken up onto random sections in Greenville. A great place to ride with kids or those with similar capabilities. As far as a training trail it’s pretty hard to get excited about it.

Doodle Rail Trail

Bridge out!

November, 2021 by joyruebush

We started out in Easley, the parking lot is not very big and we were pulling a trailer which we had to park behind a restaurant across the street. Not a big deal, but just be aware if you are in anything bigger than a car. We came to a dead end at one of the bridges that had huge holes in it. So we never made it to Pickens because of this as we saw no signs to get around this. So I estimate the last 2 miles were not traveled. So we just turned around and returned to the start and started the trail again! Nice city trail except for the bridge out.

Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail

Great Trail…poor signage

September, 2021 by sandymo

Rode end to end on the largest section of the trail from Greenville to past Travelers Rest and back. As others have said, finding the “real” trail out of town is pretty tough. There are way too many unmarked options. We tried two before finally finding a third and following a few cyclists that looked like they were riding for some distance. It’s beautiful in the city, but they really do need good signage. This is also a trail to cruise and enjoy until you get well out of town. Its crowded, even on a Wednesday.

Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail

Sunday Afternoons Cleveland park and beyond airplane

September, 2021 by rlbullock

Too crowded with walkers and little kids for a pleasant ride. Groups of walkers block path and do not move to side. Some areas too narrow and with blind corners. Two bike wrecks I know of in 40 minutes due to walkers and little kids running out in front of bikes. Not a good experience.

Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail

Great for all ages!

September, 2021 by danadeaton

We rode from Travelers Rest to the swamp rabbit café and grocery. Perfect place to stop and have a wonderful lunch! The path was smooth, mostly level and shady. Even in 80° it was a comfortable ride.

Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail

This trail has potential

September, 2021 by robert.richter89

I rode 14 miles of the Swamp Rabbit Trail starting in Traveler's Rest and ending at the trail's end near Greenville Tech. The fundamentals for a great trail experience is here it just needs more investment in signage to bring it to its full potential.

Traveler's Rest is a perfect trail town and provides many options to get something to eat, shop and multiple locations to lock up your bike. You can tell that the town has really embraced the Swamp Rabbit Trail; its a shame that they don't have great signage to direct you to the trail or to find a good parking spot on the trail. Within the first quarter mile I had to use my phone to figure out that the trail continued across the street because there was no signage directing me there and it was not so obvious as the trail is tucked behind the sidewalk.

As you leave Traveler's Rest the signage for the Swamp Rabbit Trail does come into play but it still is confusing to find and stay on the trail through Furman University, the Cancer Survivors Park, and a playground by the local zoo. All of these points provided great scenery and multiple options for food I just wish it was more obvious which paved section was the actual trail.

The Swamp Rabbit Trail website is very detailed and I wish the actual trail had as much thought put into it as the website does. The trail itself is in very good condition which made riding an enjoyable experience. I can tell that the local communities have invested a lot of time and money into this trail; a small investment in better signage will make this trail a five star trail.
