Sumter Cypress Trail

So-so, don't ride after rain

June, 2020 by jackritterskamp

We rode from Dillon Park to Cypress Park. Signage is mediocre at best and it was easy to miss turns. Cypress Park signage is non-existent and we gave up and turned around. Do not ride with street bike tires, balloon or fatter, with low pressure, needed for the sand and roots. Approach from Dillon Park has one VERY narrow spot in middle of trail with DEEP washouts on both sides. Rest of trail between parks seemed OK but challenging. Other reviews mentioned mud ... we saw some in Cypress Park just as we turned around, more ahead was what made up our mind.

Sumter Cypress Trail

Simple 5 Mile Loop

April, 2020 by merylking87

I've gone on this trail with my dogs multiple times a week for years. I normally park at Cypress Park, one of the areas the trail crosses the road. Some days I do a mile or two, other days the full loop.

There is a section I almost always have to wade through, but I wear waterproof boots and my dogs enjoy splashing through it. There are several road crossings and a detour by a factory.

While there are more scenic, remote trails in South Carolina, this has the advantage of being in town, a 5 minute drive from my house. Being accessible, even after a busy work day, is why I still rate it at 5 stars.

Sumter Cypress Trail

Good except for the swamp!

March, 2020 by scflanagan

For the most part, this was a nice, easy 6-mile ride through woods, trails and fire breaks. I found it was marked decent and fairly easy to follow. However, there was one portion where I had to cross a few hundreds meters of 1/2 foot deep swamp over the trail. I made it but fully muddy below the knees. That part is not for the faint-hearted. There is also a spot where the trail is closed on the east side due to construction at Becton Dickinson; that part was pretty easy to detour around about 200 meters East. Overall, I enjoyed most of it except for the swamp part, and I don’t think I’ll submit myself to that part again. Good luck!

Sumter Cypress Trail

Nice ride

October, 2019 by csumter7

Rode my bike along the Cypress trial. It is well maintained. I only rode from Dillion park to Cypress park. I find the ride quite enjoyable. I ride with my husband and our dogs ride in their doggy trailer. We get to take a pit stop at the Bark park for our fur babies. Only issue is the beginning of the trial is not marked by the green official trial sign. The trial sign is on the opposite side that ends at Wise Dr

Sumter Cypress Trail

First hike!

March, 2017 by gabehut

The Sumter Cypress Trail is a neat, simple trail. There was one pet where I had to remove my shoes to wade through some water, but the rest of the trail was fine. Be sure to pay close attention for trail signs. It is easy to get off the path due to many "paeudo" trails .

Sumter Cypress Trail

Nice Trail, poorly marked

March, 2016 by kevinjahearn

Road the trail today with my wife. Nice ride, but trail is not well kept and is poorly marked. It is hard to follow and we lost the trail several times. Some sections extremely muddy ¿¿ I liked it, my wife not so much.

Florence Rail Trail (SC)

A short but scenic trail

November, 2015 by theroadgoeson4ever

The trailhead is not easy to find. The trail would benefit from improved signage leading you to the trailhead. Once you find it, it's a nice trail, protected by a thick tree canopy. The asphalt trail connects to some dirt trails, not sure how far they go. Great place to go for a run!

Nice, clean and well maintained. Very enjoyable.

Florence Rail Trail (SC)

Nicely maintained trail

February, 2007 by Munchabunch

"Although not very long, this trail does provide a nice stroll through the trees. Past the end of the rail-trail is a series of unpaved trails thru the woods."
