River Birch Trail is an excellent, easy trail. It provides a nice, shady walk along the lazy river with beautiful views of nice homes on the other side. I highly recommend it!
9/12/22 -- Downed trees are now taken care of.
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.
Trail is blocked by downed trees about a mile west of Hwy 176.
Love this area and this trail, there are some construction so pay attention to new signs for directions
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.
Nice lit trail.
…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.
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!
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.
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.
