Great These Days

October, 2017 by ggff_tl

This trail used to be in rough shape but it has been newly paved as of this year and work is still being done in terms of landscaping etc. I am on the trail on a daily basis and have never had any safety issues. Its a great gem in west ashley

Afternoon 4 miles

September, 2017 by philsucksgolf

A quick warm-up to the trail head by the ball field from the Residence Inn. 2 miles out and back. Few road crossings and intersections are inside a residential area. Very little traffic. Great scenery, flat and smooth surface. A nice surprise as I was going to try a hit downtown Charleston for a run. Glad the hotel manager made the recommendation. Enjoy this trail!!

Awendaw Passage (Palmetto Trail)

Fun Trail

September, 2017 by williamrwiggins

I am a relative newbie to trail riding. My new Giant ATX did a great job pulling me over the bumps and even through the deep standing water. Next time, we will go during low tide and not after a big rain. Bring bug spray!!! All-in-All we have fun!

Awendaw Passage (Palmetto Trail)

Best RUNNING trail in area!

March, 2017 by rwmcnutt

I have run most of the Swamp Fox and love it, but would probably make this #1 in the CHARLESTON area. It is unbelievably beautiful along the marshes and intracoastal. And it even has a section of great switchbacks and elevation gains. And depending on where you start, one of the best things about it is a great turnaround at Buck Hall with picnic tables, water and rest rooms.

The tide was mostly out this day and it hadn't rained in 4-5 days. I could see the possibility of wet areas if it has been raining a lot or really high tides. But, there are usually boards or reinforced walkways in areas where it might be wet. You should be fine near low tide (but obviously more beautiful with tides in!).

Minimal roots. Could see where bikers might have to walk some areas for one reason or another, but few. No problem for runners or hikers.

Highly recommend! This trail is what the LOWCOUNTRY is all about!!!

A great non-road running option!

February, 2017 by rwmcnutt

Note: This trail is less than 8 miles long (one way) from the trail markers on this map, not the 10.5 listed.

But other than that, it is a well maintained and easy to run on path/trail. Yes, the first few miles are paved and you cross a number of roads starting from the east. And yes, there are some less scenic sections, but you also run through absolutely beautiful lowcountry marsh/water settings. I highly recommend giving it a try.

Swamp Fox Passage (Palmetto Trail)

Bumpy

January, 2017 by tebuckner4

My husband and I started to ride this trail recently, but we gave up about a half-mile in because it was too bumpy and rough for our bikes. The surroundings are lovely, but I don't recommend riding this trail unless you have thick tires and a full suspension mountain bike.

Edisto Nature Trail

closed

we drove to this trail a few days ago and found that it has been closed since September 2016

Swamp Fox Passage (Palmetto Trail)

Half Way Creek to Awendaw

December, 2016 by rwmcnutt

Ran out and back on this 6 mile section of Swamp Fox / Palmetto Trail today. Trail was in great shape and even with a hard rain a few days ago it was 95% dry. Some hard root packed areas but mostly running on a bed of pine needles. Great way to end 2016! Highly recommend!

Johns Island End - tranquil/peaceful

December, 2016 by askrickysmith

I walk often at the south end of the trail. Turn by railroad viaduct and go under bridge and drive toward metal buildings. Peaceful and great views of water/marsh and all types of birds.

Not safe

Not a trail to feel safe.

Great walk

November, 2016 by j_nlewis

The Greenway is awesome. The last thing they need to do is blacktop it. For those who were disappointed it did not have bathrooms or a café, please take yourself and your disappointment back to where you came from. The whole idea of this trail is to get people away from those things! My dog and I walk it every Saturday/Sunday morning and we both enjoy the quiet and beauty of every mile.
