We used to love to go to McQueen's Island Trail, but it is no longer even enjoyable or safe. There are no more trash bins, porta potty's, and worst of all the walking bridge has been broken now for over two years? Why can't this be maintained with the county taxes we all pay to live here? It is a disgrace.
We enjoyed our ride from Ft. Pulaski on a warm February day, but noticed the storm damage others have mentioned. A bridge with planks making it passable by walking; a couple of trees across the trail you have to carry bikes over; and the totally gone bridge at 2.2 miles as mentioned. We assumed the damage was from last fall (2017) but see from other reviews the problems go back much longer. We certainly aren’t calling out anybody who lives locally and supports this trail, but I don’t see why they couldn’t do some fund raising - start by putting a sign at the damage giving a website where one can donate.
Storm damage has left natural debris and caused damage to several bridges but it was still an enjoyable ride on flat hard-packed sandy, gravel, dirt path with Good views of marsh and Savannah River. Unfortunately first wood bridge was very damaged with wide gap and a few small planks to use. Safety hazard for those who don’t see it coming. Then, 2.2 miles brought us to a completely destroyed bridgeway. Only 2 metal pipes cross the canal, not a single wood plank remains, leaving a 20+ foot gap and forcing us to turnaround...no way to go forward. We had started at Fort Pulaski monument. Benches and workout points along the trail are also in disrepair. Hopefully improvements will come soon.
We stopped to check out this trail while traveling, and we loved it. It is wide, clean, and well appointed with benches, tool stations, and scenic stops. We will definitely come back!
This is a great easy trail to walk and ride on! Along the trail are benches, picnic tables and work out obstacles... But.... 1.Coming from Fort Pulaski entrance at about 2.4 miles is a huge wash out.. (round trip is 4.82 miles) 2. From the Hwy 80 vehicle parking spot midway on the trail, going left (north) on the trail at about 2.5 miles is a huge wash out.. (round trip is 6.33 miles, utilizing the whole trail in both directions)
We started from the south end just last week (11/6/2017).
It doesn't seem the trail has been maintained in quite some time. In the first 2 miles there were large logs across the trail in 4 places. At the 2.2 mile mark it was completely washed out. Not crossable for us.
Looks like it could be nice if taken care of.
This trail used to be in rough shape but it has been newly paved as of this year and work is still being done in terms of landscaping etc. I am on the trail on a daily basis and have never had any safety issues. Its a great gem in west ashley
A quick warm-up to the trail head by the ball field from the Residence Inn. 2 miles out and back. Few road crossings and intersections are inside a residential area. Very little traffic. Great scenery, flat and smooth surface. A nice surprise as I was going to try a hit downtown Charleston for a run. Glad the hotel manager made the recommendation. Enjoy this trail!!
From the parking area I headed left about 2.5 miles to the end then rode all the way down to Fork Pulaski and back. Nice ride but there is still a large washout which I recommend you dismount and cross. (This recommendation comes from my experience of trying to ride across and face planting at the bottom). Your choice.
Needs repair- a couple of bridges are out- one passable but other not passable if high tide. Still not bad small gravel path- lined by palm trees that provide shade. Part of path wiped out by storm and some parts too sandy to ride through. No facilities.
First, the trail is actually 9.25 miles long, 18.5 round trip.
Waterways and wooded marshland for the most part, sometimes you can see dolphins. I ride here weekly and always enjoy it.
We live in charleston and decided to day trip to Beaufort for this trail. It's a beautiful trail. It's wide all cement for at least 8+ miles, one way, and well maintained. Lots of people cycling, walking, kids, rollers skating on the trail. It has an option to get off and detour to Bay Street ( main tourist road in Beaufort). We parked at the parking lot off roseida road. I thought that was the beginning of the trail but it appears a new addition has been added going north( away from downtown). I would def recommend to anyone looking to cycle the city and get some exercise doing so. Have fun!
