I started out at Fort Pulaski and only got 0.7 miles in before reaching an impassable bridge. Went to the halfway point parking. Heading east led to a spot that had severe erosion. Heading west wasn't as bad. There was some erosion but I was able to go more than 2 miles from that point. It is beautiful and peaceful out there but I wanted to do 12 miles and was not able to because of the lack of maintenance of the trail.
This is a beautiful ride. Trail is very well maintained and with lovely views of the marshes and inlets. Easy to find parking lots on google Maps. There is easy access to Beaufort and Port Royal from the trail.
A very nice trail. Pavement conditions were great with some places looking like it was newly paved. There was a few sections that were not paved, but they did not cause any problems (of course you wouldn't want to try them on a road bike). If you are ever in the area of Charleston, this is a must do trail. It doesn't disappoint!
We rode this trail at the same time as we rode the West Ashley Greenway. I rated it 4 stars because about the western half would rate about 3 stars because of very rough unsafe pavement. The eastern half was very nice and would rate 5 stars easy. Even with the bad conditions on the western end, it was a nice ride. Just had to be very careful of the bad pavement conditions.
Very nice trail. Smooth surface and fairly flat trail. Need more signage. We didn't see many signs and it was a little confusing at times. Not much shade so it was a hot ride (in the 90's). Might be better to plan to ride it in the morning or late in the afternoon or just during cooler weather.
This is any easy trail for families. Very flat and smooth. Rode from Beaufort to Port Royal. Sad part is the trail ends before you get to the historic main part of town. The “trail” continues with small signs marking the way through a residential area. You must cross HWY 21 (Ribaut Rd)
The trail was great. My Fitbit did not calculate 3 miles; it calculated only 2.70 miles.
$3 fee per adult. Easy walk along the old canal to the Ogeechee River and back. A hiking trail goes off to the left after you pass the restrooms. Bring bug spray in the summer.
Can be very muddy after a lot of rain. A quiet walk through what was once rice fields in the New River marsh. Trail ends at the New River where the old railroad bridge had burned down. Wish the trail went all the way to the rivers edge.
Nice easy flat trail with great views of the lowcountry marsh. Concrete for about two thirds of the trail. Chance to see a lot of wildlife and make sure to have bug spray during the summer.
We took our bikes thinking it would be a great trip with tons to see. It was beautiful for sure. However, the trail is washed out about 1 mile in either direction from the middle of the trail. We rode from one end to the next and totaled about 2 miles. It wasn’t completely disappointing. At least we didn’t have to pay for parking...
As other reviewers have mentioned, this trail needs some work. Right around 2.5 miles from the Fort Pulaski entrance, the pedestrian bridge is washed away completely. Fortunately, someone has put up some pipes to walk across so you can continue on the path. There are a few other places that have eroded away and the path is almost gone. Then, you can’t reach the end, because the boardwalk is gone. Also, on the map they say you can go a little ways east from the Fort entrance. That trail is trashed completely, as I only was able to get about .2 miles before it was impassable. But the views scenery is beautiful and you should definitely check it out if you are in the area. Just know what you are heading into! All that being said, it’s a beautiful setting. I ran the out and back from
