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.

Fantastic trail. Great scenery. Smooth concrete throughout. However, was on the trail yesterday and some person, or persons have broken bottles on the trail beginning just beyond the tunnel all the way to the Clarendon trail head. I rode my bike through a couple of the areas where there was glass and was fortunate that it didn’t pop my tire. Met several cyclists along the way who weren’t as fortunate. Seems as if this might have been done intentionally. I ride the trail approximately 5 times a week and just started noticing the glass breakage within the last week. Cyclists please be aware!

Spanish Moss Trail

Beautiful well maintained trail

October, 2019 by anna.roberts

This is a really wonderful trail to ride with your family. Pretty stops with a few nice drinking fountains. Historical markers throughout. Beautiful water views. We pull a baby trailer and it’s a smooth ride for our baby and free of debris spraying on them. I’m looking forward to the expansion!

McQueen's Island Trail

Still Closed

April, 2019 by brettdhudson

April 22, 2019 - I was able to get on the trail from the west entrance, but about a quarter mile in both directions there are big gaps in the trail where it looks like some sort of bridge or structure has collapsed. Lots of construction equipment in the parking area.

Edisto Nature Trail

Relaxing

April, 2019 by wellssoph

A great short trail after riding for awhile. Peaceful, relaxing, and perfect for a short burst of nature.

Spanish Moss Trail

Great Ride!!

March, 2019 by john.dischinger

Beautiful trail in excellent condition ... this has been one of the most enjoyable rides my wife and have made in the US. Highly recommend it and suggest you take your time....

West Ashley Greenway

Not Safe

March, 2019 by stomperjohn

Correction: The previous review should read:
There have been several violent assaults on women on this trail. People keep saying its safe! However, I will bet the women who have been violently assaulted DON'T feel this way! THINK ABOUT IT! Read for yourself: http://www.live5news.com/2019/03/12/police-looking-man-who-assaulted-woman-west-ashley-greenway-monday-night-2/
How safe is the trail if people keep getting assaulted?
