Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail

some rough areas but great trail

March, 2021 by mpwt4fpdup

Very flat and well maintained. Some large sections undergoing some renovations. We stayed at the Embassy Suites Hotel—trail starts right behind hotel. Great weekend trip.

Doodle Rail Trail

Enjoyable and Just Long Enough!

March, 2021 by susan194

There is parking plenty at both the Easley and the Pickens endpoints. We rode bikes from Pickens to Easley, stopped for some ice cream, and then turned around. Logged 16 total miles. It's rolling for a rail trail, not completely flat. You learn to enjoy the downhills and coast, because you will work out on the uphills! The train cars at both ends are neat to see. This trail needs some economic development at both ends! The ice cream was from a QuickiMart kind of place. How wonderful if a real ice cream shop opened! Or maybe a winery or a brewery.... my mind goes wild!

Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail

Awesome trail

March, 2021 by epicslyfox3

We parked at traveler's rest and roller-skated all the way to Greenville. Lots of small declines and slight hills. Some sections closed for maintenance but there was a detour that was not really well maintained. Nevertheless, there were some cool sights. Old train cars, old buildings, swamps, new houses, Furman University, and etc. Nice trail if biking or walking to see nature.

Doodle Rail Trail

parking question

January, 2021 by kappamega_tl

Are they road side parking along the trail ? With special needs I can only walk - so I did 1.5 miles from endpoints. I want to do some midsection too.

Doodle Rail Trail

Local favorite

December, 2020 by srael

The Doodle is a beautiful, versatile trail. Challenging hills, sweet slopes to glide down and beautiful vistas make for a pleasant eight mile ride. Sixteen total miles will give you the good cardio workout you are looking for without unpleasant broken pavement.

Thermal Belt Rail-Trail

great easy ride

December, 2020 by kjclow

Rode this for the first time dec 12. Weather was great and trail even better. Nice new blacktop and fairly wide. We started in Forest City so we could enjoy the lights at night. The only negative that keeps it from getting 5 stars is that there are many street crossing that are not marked. You have to cross 74 twice. Most drivers yielded to the bikes but you have to pay careful attention for those that don’t.

Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail

Improvements in Progress

December, 2020 by litespeedvb

Back in October 2020 they started repaving the SRT at the Greenville city line and are heading north to Travelers Rest. They are currently about half-way done (5 miles) and are expected to finish by the end of the year. Hallelujah!

Now let’s hope the city of Greenville gets on-board to fix the southern portion of the trail.

Oklawaha Greenway

Nice Little Greenway

November, 2020 by myj27uq2de

Rode my bike on the greenway today. Parked at the parking lot across the street from Berkeley Ball Park, the entry to the greenway is right there. Well paved, wide two lane with lots of park benches, bike service stations, and emergency call boxes along the path. It connects quite a bit of parks along the way, which is nice. You go over and under a few bridges. Lots of local walkers enjoying themselves, everyone was very respectful of personal space. One thing to note, I went a sunny day and it wasn’t muddy until I reached right after the Pets Own Dog Park entry about 0.5 miles from Jackson Park. So if there has been some rain in the week I would recommend going from Berkeley Ball Park to Pets Own Dog Park and skipping Jackson Park.

Thermal Belt Rail-Trail

many crossings

November, 2020 by tandembiker2013

The trail is paved and well maintained. My favorite is the northern part which is about 5 miles after that you have to deal with crossings and traffic lights. An elderly couple got an accident and the husband busted his head. Blood all over the road. We have to help the wife to go back to her car and lift her ebike. It needs a lot of concentration and need your attention coz there are few sections that are not smooth.

Doodle Rail Trail

The Doodle Trail

November, 2020 by joeruminski

My wife and I decided to try a new to us trail that we could get to and back in a day from Asheville. The Doodle ended up our destination. We had a great ride. Met friendly people, nice trail had a great lunch in Easley and a good ride back to Pickens. We ride a tandem recumbent bike and had no problems with the hills. We will go back.
