I am travelling cross-country and stopping each day to skate.
This trail has occasional root cracks, but I don't recall ever skating on smoother pavement. A GREAT skating venue.
I found dry leaves on the trail in many places, but skated through them without any problem.
Beware the wet spots on the trail - they are SLIPPERY!
Catawba Meadows Park is about mid-point and is a good parking area.
This trail is the safest route for cyclists wanting to get from Greenville to Travelers Rest and beyond. Unfortunately the trail surface is so rough and broken throughout much of its length that it makes for an extremely unpleasant riding experience for road bikes.
I recommend a bike with suspension when cycling the Swamp Rabbit, or road bikes avoid the use of this trail.
According to Bike Walk Greenville both the city and county have been made aware of the terrible surface conditions on the Swamp Rabbit trail, but they continue to do nothing to make the situation better.
The trail is smooth and has some wooded sections as well as the historical aspect of the Oak Grove and Morehead cemeteries
Rode from travelers rest to furman and had a great time. My daughter loved it. There are a lot of scenery changes and plenty of places to stop along the way. Will definitely ride again!
Great trail for my first ride in two years. Mostly flat, a few slight inclines. Shade available. Only trouble was with one family group with an unleashed dog and another woman on the wrong side of the trail with a dog who wouldn’t move to the right. Please people, follow the rules and keep everyone safe. I look forward to riding there again.
Ride the full length and back. Great scenery on the northern end. Quaint towns on the southern.
This ride was nice. Some good scenery with farm land. Trail is well maintained and good for biking and walking/jogging. The hills are long and gradual and can be a little difficult at times. All in all a great trail for a good workout.
Very easily accessible. Some good scenery with farm land and a few hills. A great ride if you’re looking for a good workout.
Enjoyed the country setting and the challenge of some hills. Beautiful scenery and marked well once you get on it. Had some trouble finding the start but met some locals so NBD. Fun ride!
Super fun ride with a lot scenery changes. Stop at the ST Grocery and Cafe for some local food. Only minor improvements needed are a few pavement issues from roots (need to marked or repaired) and better signage in some areas. It was a great day!
Poorly marked and poorly paved in multiple portions.
This is a lovely trail. It goes through some beautiful parks. Good facilities. The trail is mostly shaded, flat and runs along the river. Will definitely be going back.
