Spanish Moss Trail

A Carolina Gem

October, 2020 by theblueporchtownhome

I rode this trail in early October with my wife and son (9), and was very impressed. Beautiful scenery, excellent markings, and safe crossings for the major roads make it very family friendly.

Sawmill Branch Multi-Use Trail

Nice but a bit too rough for inline skating.

New River Linear Trail

Early morning is Best

October, 2020 by runwithloulou83

I have run it several times. The parking lot is not located where the map shows it. The run from the lot to under the highway can be sketchy, there was a neighborhood under construction and some trash from there is on the trail. Once you get by all that it is nice, we see deer, turtles, and alligators. Going towards the marsh is a nice run early with the sunrise and animals running around. If you do a little history lesson of the area it is really neat how the area was used for rice farming and timber harvesting.

Spanish Moss Trail

Thoroughly Enjoyable

July, 2020 by gawright60_tl

Beautiful, well-maintained path. There are a number of road crossings at the south end, but otherwise it's a great trip with nice scenery.

New River Linear Trail

Not much

June, 2020 by scotthiers1976

Not a whole lot to see here. Definately one of the least scenic trails I've been on. Came out and pulled 7 or 8 ticks off of me.

Spanish Moss Trail

mostly fantastic

June, 2020 by ccoombs1

This trail was wonderful. We went on a weekday and it was not crowded. I don’t recommend parking in the first lot. Store next to it has bars on the windows which never feels like a safe place to leave my vehicle. Second lot had a nice Parker’s store which welcomes bikers to use the facilities. Very nice place. There are many road crossings but are well marked with lights at the busy ones. The trail ends at rebaut road before reaching Port Royal. Crossing the road is scary but worth it. The town is very nice with a couple Of good restaurants.

McQueen's Island Trail

obviously closed with lots of construction but nice walk

May, 2020 by kalona413

I enjoyed the day! Beautiful sky, nice and open!! If you’re okay overlooking the closed signs you’re good!

Sawmill Branch Multi-Use Trail

Corona trail walk

April, 2020 by sydneysbrylane

It’s a nice trail and I enjoyed it, but I wouldn’t recommend it during the summertime. It’s open and there’s no shade. It’s amazing during the wintertime though.

JF Gregory Park Trail

Peaceful and Serene!

March, 2020 by ceciliabird

I am so grateful to have this convenient and amazing park to retreat to on a regular basis. Just one of the many things I love about Richmond Hill, GA.
