Too narrow for bicycles

July, 2021 by howlin

Great walking trail, well maintained, but a bit narrow for bicycles, especially on the bridges and board walks.

Alston Trailhead - Taking me back to Nature!

May, 2021 by bdowlin1_tl

I absolutely love the trail. Mile by mile it is an escape from my busy life. I enjoy spotting birds, including large birds like owls, herons and hawks. Watching turtles on crowded logs while the otters swim and play. And if you like snakes watch closely and you will occasionally find them sunning alongside the trail. I’ve invested in rain gear just so I can see the forest come to life with small streams and waterfalls leading to the busy creeks and feeding the river. And so much more to see!

Beautiful trail

May, 2021 by rebecca.johnson7

Took my dog and we had a blast. It was so peaceful and serene. There are markers with information on them about the land which was interesting to read. It’s paved all the way through the trail we went on which was nice. Definitely will go back!

North Augusta Greeneway Park

NA Greenway partially closed

April, 2021 by ezxvpj9ea2

Beautiful trail for all ages of cyclists. Started at Bergen trailhead, but trail was closed at Cypress Road, so we had to turn around. Workers said they will be closing it all the way north to the bridge. Not sure how long work will take.

River Levee Trail

Great trail for cycling

March, 2021 by rowlandv.vr

This trail was an easy ride with a great view. Rest and water stops were also along the way.

Euchee Creek Greenway Trail

great trail

October, 2020 by cinturner

I really enjoy running on this trail, great view and challenging run. The trail is 7miles but I haven’t ran the hold 7 miles. Not familiar with the layout of the trail so I’ve only gone so far. If you enjoy running, walking, biking take time out to visit this trail.

Save Your Cycling

October, 2020 by dudleyd

The trail is well maintained but very short. The advertised 12.5 miles is not achievable the portion we were on was only 2.5 miles. The rangers in the area were of no help and much more involved in leaf blowing that any directional help. The farthest North trailhead (The broad River Canal Riverfront Park) was not an area I would recommend to anyone to leave their car unattended. Several cars with people just sitting, no bike racks and evidence via broken glass of a recent car breakin. The trail “terminated seemingly” at the Columbia Canal and Riverfront Park. This was a very nice area, but designed for walkers and joggers. Absolutely no literature to help find your way across the bridge and on to the other side of the canal. If you are a walker or jogger, don’t miss this trail option. If you are looking to do some cycling....save the time unloading and move on......

Palmetto Trail (Peak to Prosperity Passage)

Nice Ride

October, 2020 by malcolmwheels

What I like about this trail is that it passes through a heavily wooded area passing over streams and rivers. Very scenic. Also i have never seen more than a few other people when I’ve been there. There are two easy road crossings. Unfortunately one of the bridges has no side rails and some of the boards are in need of repair so use caution when crossing. The trail is somewhat rocky but much improved o er what it used to be.

Euchee Creek Greenway Trail

Great addition to the walking and biking options in Columbia County. Lots of beautiful natural views while following the Euchre Creek. Family friendly stopping points and connections with many neighborhoods in the area.
