Savannah & Ogeechee Canal Trail

Really not a 6 mile trail any more.

June, 2024 by parkersspace

I went to the Museum first to park and hopefully ride my bike but the Museum care taker informed me that the portion to lock 5 and 6 at the museum was not suitable for riding. She also told me I didn't want to ride down Bush Road as it's quite busy with no shoulders but I could drive my car down it and ride from the Tow Path portion past Little Neck Road. I went to L Scott Stell park and parked there, had a look around and did not find any trail access in the park and when I road down to Little neck Road it looked like it was just a drive way across the road but it actually the continuation of Bush Road (the son of the caretaker at the museum told me this. I decided to drive my car over to the dirt road and parked at the Bush Road parking kept up by the Museum and Nature center also. The bridge here and wooden path over the water is in good repair but the bridge stanchions are a little close together and I had to walk my bike through them as they were narrower than my handle bars. I follow the trail along to the Canal Bank Road and across Quacco Road to discover that I could only go about a half mile more for a total of 1.7 miles (3.4 out and back from the Bush Road parking). The canal after Quacco road is mostly just a ditch without water and the the tow path has a lot of construction fencing and debris along it as houses are being built and land developed. It appeared impossible to me to take it to I-16 now as is previously mentioned. I have submitted an update to the description to Trail Link and I'll post photos of what I found. This might be a nice hike, I doubt the portion after Quacco Road will be accessible at all much longer, but it's a pretty short bike ride especially as it doesn't really continue as a canal when you come out of the tow path at Canal Bank Road where there is much construction also with piping lining the sides of the road to have new sewers and such installed like to service new housing going in the area.

Trail in great shape

June, 2024 by mbretscher_tl

This is a wide, all concrete trail & is in great shape. It’s getting a 3 star rating because it has some hazardous crossings on busy roads. At one crossing, although we had triggered the pedestrian crossing signal, we were almost hit by cars ignoring the red light for them. Be very cautious when using this trail. The south end of the trail is closed with a detour. The detour involved riding a very narrow sidewalk along a busy highway. There is not room to pass a pedestrian or another bike on the sidewalk. We turned around rather than continue. Not sure how long the detour will be in effect.

McQueen's Island Trail

Poor maintenance

November, 2023 by larrydixon2051

Mixed maintenance: At least 7 areas of tidal over wash from 40 feet to 200 feet in distance with some washouts reducing trail to one lane rut. The size of the gravel used for maintenance is too large: 2" rocks were common.

McQueen's Island Trail

Beautiful Run

Truman Linear Park Trail

Nice new path

October, 2023 by p_spivey

Hubby and I biked from Isle of Hope to Norwood tavern and then down Central Rd. to pick up this trail. There are some tricky road crossings, but the lights work in your favor. The path itself was really nice! Smooth divided concrete down to Bacon Park and around Lake Myers then back again. We continued on following Harry S Truman highway, but the path remained insulated from the highway noise and very shady! Once we reached Derenne, we turned around since the path was going to end soon. I hope they decide to extend this trail to Deleseps St.

Spanish Moss Trail

Yes Perfect Ride

September, 2023 by shelliott50

Nice wide concrete path through “trunnels” (tree tunnels), residential areas and commercial areas. We we’re camped 10 miles north of the northern end at Clarendon Park and used that parking several times. This end goes through a kind of rough neighborhood and some locals hangout in the park! The other place we parked was at the Publix grocery store on Robert Smalls Parkway about middle of the trail. There’s a concrete path that goes right over to the trail on the right end of the store with ample parking. The trail crosses several narrow lol

Spanish Moss Trail

Great pavement and width but poor trail

August, 2023 by mhornick1

If I were local, I would rate much higher. However as a person that has traversed Many trails I have to give this trail a low rating. As a local person, this is a nice trail. However, compared to other trails, it is lacking. Directions to the various trailheads is a zero. I could not find the Port Royal trailhead because there is one. So I went to the northern most near Beaufort and headed south. The scenery is a 3. When you get to Port Royal the trail apparently ends. However, it is paved to the left and a sign indicates 2 miles to go But payment ends and there are no more signs. i Qent T Lacking Tonother trails A Local it is a nice trail A Low rating. has

12’ wide, smooth concrete for 10+ miles. WOW. Easy, leisurely ride. Beautiful and interesting points of interest. We’re very glad we made this choice.

Spanish Moss Trail

very pretty trail

February, 2023 by jrutch

we started at broome lane parking lot (small - but had a bathroom) - rode right almost to the end - turned around and went back all the way and then retraced the mile or so back to broome lane - very lovely ride - just about 17 miles - some very scenic sections - the middle of the ride had a couple of busy/traffic-lighted intersections (no worries if you're careful) and a bit that was right next to the highway - but the pros way out-weighed the cons - good ride - would do it again if ever in the area again - just for those who are interested in the value of rails to trails in your town - we rode here and then spent the night / ate / spent money in beaufort ... RTT do bring economic gain to their host towns !!

Spanish Moss Trail

not what I expected

February, 2023 by jemsnyder66

pro’s: I love when towns invest in trails, especially as a biker who likes to explore. This trail is a cement, flat path which is nice for easy going. For cyclists, you can do an easy and safe out and back 20ish miles. There is a nice section at Depot Road where you can take a trip into Beaufort- highly suggest! Con’s: this is not a pretty, scenic trail. It goes through depressed areas, is often next to major roads and is littered w/trash.
