Thermal Belt Rail-Trail

Great exercise

May, 2022 by maddoxfour

The very beginning in Gilkey, NC to Ruth, NC and then from Harris parking to Forest City are the bests parts of this 13.5 stretch of trail. The parts in middle are mostly Urban and I did see that the maintainers of the Rails to trail are working diligently trying to clean up some sections along with working with businesses along the trail to make it more appealing. We just need more business to step up and do their part. They have their work cut out for them just pass Spindale, NC to the Harris Street parking in Forest City, NC

Catawba River Greenway

Beautiful ride ¿¿

May, 2022 by vki11switchv

I’m just getting back into bike riding and this was the first place I rode. Beautifully paved trails with only slight inclines. Definitely recommend checking this place out.

Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail

it’s a jewel, but…

April, 2022 by rputnamnc

…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.

Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail

Absolutely Superb in Every Way!

April, 2022 by thejake91739

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!

Thermal Belt Rail-Trail

Five star trail condition....4 stars scenery.

April, 2022 by gordorad

Great smooth wide trail. 5 big stars for trail condition. This is definitely more of an "urban trail", so those seeking nature will not be very pleased. Although the south end and north end is wooded, most of the trail is along a highway and then through a couple small towns. Very easy pleasant ride, with only a couple "dangerous" road crossings....(a couple of them are a bit blind).

Brevard Bike Path

Actually two trails!

March, 2022 by locobill49

I rode this for he first time today. Started at the north end and the first 1.3 miles was gravel pathway along a river. Very pretty but would not recommend for a street type bike. Once I crossed the highway at Lowes, it was paved the remainder. I didn’t get to the end because I actually lost the way with a mile to go. No signs pointing the way on the paved portion, which would have been nice.. The highlight was stopping at Oskar Blues Brewery on the way back.

Thermal Belt Rail-Trail

Nice combination of urban/rural

February, 2022 by woodencanoe1

Drove up to Spindale, NC from Greenville, SC to ride the Thermal Belt Trail. Well worth the drive! Rode from mile 9 up to mile 0, then back. Nice combination of urban and rural. Especially enjoyed the Bechtler Mint park around mile 2. Will definitely be back, and will ride all of it.

Point Lookout Trail

Trail run

January, 2022 by misch.7

First trail run of my NC citizenship and it was awesome. All paved, beautiful day and beautiful scenery. Will definitely be back. All uphill followed by all downhill. 7.1 round trip.

Wilma Dykeman Greenway

Great connector

December, 2021 by funkykittyrecords

The Wilma Dykeman Greenway is a sweet, new, multi-use trail. There are walkers, runners, skaters, dogs, and families along the paved walking path.

The dedicated two-way bike lanes make riding this a breeze. There is room for faster bikers to pass and no worry about cars as the bike lanes are protected by a low concrete barrier.

This trail takes you all along the River Arts District, where you can stop for coffee, food, galleries, and more. There are crossings, which should definitely be used because the road is pretty busy.

There are plenty of places to park for free, either along the route on the street or in the lots along Riverside Drive/Lyman St. Parking closest to Smoky Park Supper Club or White Duck Taco will give you the entire expanse of the trail rather than starting in the middle. Take the greenway all the way to Amboy Rd, where you can continue to go to French Broad River Park and the Greenway through Carrier Park, all the way out to Hominy Creek River Park.

*I've also rollerbladed on the Wilma Dykeman Greenway. There can be debris (branches, stones, etc.) in the bike lanes and the walking path, making it slightly treacherous for blading.

Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail

Only for casual activities

December, 2021 by brianikmc

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.

Doodle Rail Trail

Bridge out!

November, 2021 by joyruebush

We started out in Easley, the parking lot is not very big and we were pulling a trailer which we had to park behind a restaurant across the street. Not a big deal, but just be aware if you are in anything bigger than a car. We came to a dead end at one of the bridges that had huge holes in it. So we never made it to Pickens because of this as we saw no signs to get around this. So I estimate the last 2 miles were not traveled. So we just turned around and returned to the start and started the trail again! Nice city trail except for the bridge out.

Point Lookout Trail

Great ride uphill

October, 2021 by swordinhandnow

Real scenic. Steady rise. Just the right distance to and from.
