Little Tennessee River Greenway (Franklin)

Great Western NC Greenway

October, 2017 by lharcher462

The Little Tennessee River Greenway might be one of our new favorites to ride. I would say 80 percent of the trail is asphalt and the remainder is hard pack gravel. Three beautiful bridges, numerous benches and picnic tables are available to take a break on. The trail is advertised at five miles long. We did not ride the portion on the northern end as it requires you to cross a divided highway in town. We parked at the Tassee Park Greenway entrance and there is a really nice pavilion there with clean bathrooms to boot. If you are in the western portion of NC I highly recommend you give this trail a try. Let me add that I must disagree with a few other reviews about dangerous areas on this greenway, we didnt encounter any. I have pics and video posted on my Facebook page @bikesbeerand grub.

Doodle Rail Trail

Great afternoon Ride

September, 2017 by brentadcox

This trail is up and down almost the whole way. There a short breaks both ways but you will need some gears to deal with the long hills. Such a pretty ride and it was not crowded at all. This is a beautiful bike ride. Can't wait till the leaves turn.

Doodle Rail Trail

Nice wide pavement, but several minor hills

September, 2017 by lexingtonflyer

This is a lovely, wide rail trail. It's new enough that there aren't any rough spots in the pavement. There are few road crossings of much significance. There are more hills than typical, but fewer than you'd find on nearby roads. Frequent distance markings add to safety and help pace the rider. A mid-point rest stop was added by local Rotarians. The ride is a more rural experience than the nearby Swamp Rabbit Trail, with less traffic, and more trees. I've ridden trails from Maine to Georgia and this is a good one.

Doodle Rail Trail

Doodle Rail Trail

June, 2017 by insky132

While vacationing in nearby North Carolina, I looked up nearby railtrails and found the Doodle trail about an hour away. We were well please with great trail with great asphalt, a lot of split rail fences, benches, air pump station about midway along the trail, and a port-a-john @ the beginning. Once outside the city limits, the trail became rolling thru fields and forest. I believe the trail has been extended about a half a mile through the cemetery in Easley. Nice ride!

Blue Ridge Railroad Historical Trail

straight up and breath taking

June, 2017 by beccablankenship2009

A little daunting at the start but well worth the climb. Next time through to the end.

North Oconee River Greenway

Fun, Fun, Fun!

April, 2017 by ddicer

The Dudley Park end is good for families, but the Sandy Creek end is too much fun.

North Oconee River Greenway

just learning

April, 2017 by ddicer

Easy to get to. Plenty of parking (across from Chicopee building). The Sandy Creek end was flooded from the recent rains, so I will have to go back and try again.

Little Tennessee River Greenway (Franklin)

April 2, 2017

April, 2017 by globalmarsha

The trail is mostly asphalt but there are several annoying, and potentially dangerous for cyclists, sections on of sand and gravel that could easily be paved by those in charge. A very nice restroom attached to a pavilion (up a few stairs) is not marked. Thankfully a trail walker told me about it. Lead ins to most bridges are rough with a lip too tall for bikes to tackle. Construction on the highway bridge in Franklin separates the trail making it difficult to navigate between the segments, but hopefully this will be fixed soon. marked and can easily be missed; I found it thanks to

Tallulah Falls Rail-Trail

Great for a grandpa and young grandson!

March, 2017 by wxjeff

This was a wonderful easy hike alternative for me and my 6 year old grandson. We were sheltered from this windy day by the nature of the trail cutting through the hill where the railroad used to be. Lots to see and explore and my grandson thoroughly enjoyed the suspension bridge.

Asphalt trail is in great shape and there were a few signs describing wildlife that might be seen as well as a speaker-sign on the far side of the bridge that described its makeup and construction.

Parking is limited at the south end (maybe 7-8 spots?) Not too bad of a walk from the other parking areas on this side of the highway.

Doodle Rail Trail

Clean and wide

February, 2017 by ivy_rea

I parked on fleetwood entrance and ran 5 miles on the trail and 5 miles back. The trail was very clean and looks very new. The scenery was okay. Mostly backyards of people's homes or businesses. I went at 7am on a Sunday so it was very peaceful and quiet. there were some slight elevations throughout the trail but manageable

Doodle Rail Trail

Love this trail

October, 2016 by cherylsaunders_tl

As an inline-skater, runner and cyclist, I use this trail at least once a week and I love it.

Just focusing on inline-skating. The trail is wider than the Swamp Rabbit and the paving is new and pretty solid. I find that the trail itself is kept pretty clean throughout the year (thank you to the caretakers). For non-skaters, a trail covered in leaves, twigs and stones is almost impossible to use on skates.

The hills are tough. There are long gradual gradients and shorter sharper gradients. The ups are a great workout, and the downs require the ability to control yourself on skates, and to slow and stop yourself safely.

There are road crossings. Some of these roads are busy and for some you don't have visibility until you hit the crossing. Again, knowing how to stop quickly and safely is needed.

Because of these challenging aspects of the trail, I don't go out without my helmet and wrist, elbow and knee guards. I have tumbled twice (slipped and quick stopped) and, thankfully, only have a couple scratches to show for it (knock on wood).

Comparing the three parking lots, Alice's Manufacturing and Easley are slightly off the trail, while Pickens isn't. You may need to put your skates on at the trail if you don't chose Pickens. For me, the easiest full ride starts at Alice's (heading toward Easley initially), followed by Easley end, then Pickens end. This is due to how tired I am when I hit the final hills.

When I started inline-skating last year (2015), I had previously hardly ever tried inline-skating and was not in great shape. It took me about 1 hr 50 min to complete the full 15+ miles (I worked up to the full distance). Now, a year later, it takes me less than 1 hr 20 min at my fastest. What this means to me is, I can probably skate the trail and keep up with my casual cyclist friends as they bike it, making inline skating a viable option for a group outing.

Doodle Rail Trail

Very nice trail

October, 2016 by niceman

Following the former rail line, the asphalt surface is very comfortable to ride, with some sections in the shade. There are gentle but very noticeable slopes. The endpoints of Pickens and Easley are about the same height, and there is about 400 feet of climb each way. It might be a workout on a single speed bike but easy to ride through on a multi speed bike.

One year on, the trail is still beautiful and well maintained. Also, they have added 3 Dero Fixit bike repair stations with air pumps and tools. So even if you forget a tool, you won't be completely stranded if something goes wrong.

There are some decent restaurants in both Easley and Pickens, with 1 restaurant (Auntie Ann's) not far from the Pickens end.
