Short little connector to Main Street

Doodle Rail Trail

Hilly, not crowded

March, 2024 by woodencanoe1

This was my third ride on the Doodle trail. It is hillier than the Greenville Swamp Rabbit trail, and much less crowded. Good bathrooms at each end, and a nice store at the Pickens end that serves sandwiches and craft beers in cans and bottles.

Lyman Rail Trail

A pleasant walk

March, 2024 by shcase1964

This Lyman rail trail is a pleasant walk by the remains of an old mill and through an old mill neighborhood. I was happy to see today that the trail had been extended. Thank you!

Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail

This trail offers endless wonderful opportunities…

December, 2023 by trishabunnie

One of Greenville’s best points of interest, I ride it often and every time I make new friends. Absolutely beautiful trail and it has so much to offer!! Hopefully the rail bed from Campobello SC through historical Landrum SC and TRYON NC to Saluda NC will come to fruition soon. That would be amazing!! ¿¿

River Birch Trail

Best paved trail

October, 2023 by renustuff

Nice shaded trail, good for dogs, bikers, spotting birds and deer, and walking along the creek.

Duncan Park Trail

Nice wooded trail.

Little Tennessee River Greenway

excellent greenway

October, 2023 by tinalivingston108

Graveled roads as well as paved. Reminded me of the creeper as well as Chattanooga greenway combined. I would recommend this greenway …absolutely gorgeous!! Wish it could be longer. We rode 11 miles, but it’s so beautiful, you could ride it twice.

Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail

excellent greenway

October, 2023 by tinalivingston108

Excellent trail. Best time to ride is during the week.

Wadsworth Trail

Nice place to walk

September, 2023 by shcase1964

As others have mentioned, this is not a typical woodland trail. However, it is a very nice walking path with good shade and pleasant scenery. I appreciate the variety of this path and enjoy it more than straight trails such as Mary Black.

Doodle Rail Trail

great trail

September, 2023 by dvdestefano

Decently maintained. Gorgeous views. There’s a spot with some art work painted on the ground (near the cemetery). Both trailheads have bathrooms and a park. Few bumpy areas where ya definitely want two hands on the “wheel.”

Cleveland Park Trails

The park is just off Church St, with clean restrooms and an enclosed play area for kids. The trail extends past the park under the overpass and around an open space for a nice little walk.
