I like the trail location and I am sure it will be very nice when it is done but it is currently torn up for the whole length of the trail (the rail line ties and rails were dug up and the trail is not usable) in preparation for rebuilding it.
Went to trail and was surprised to find entire trail is in upgrade phase. All rails being pulled out and no warning or notice ANYWHERE!! I am hoping they will create a dry walking/biking path. Don't know the plans, but NOT the time to go there!!
Walk, stroll, run, bike - mix of wide paved, boardwalk and gravel. Well maintained, in fact several sections where roots had buckled the path now re-paved. Easy for any bike, kids size through road/MTB/recumbent - use a bell/courtesy "passing on your left" because many walkers/runners are chatting or have the ear buds in. Well marked in 1/4 mile increments.
Boardwalks get very slick in rain/ice so careful when running/biking. After strong rains the path can get muddy - and flood in places.
Port-a-johns at both ends. Multiple side access paths all along the greenway. Plenty of benches spaced along.
I run/bike this regularly and rare to not see deer.
Wife and I hiked this trail from the NC side, parked at Harvey Clay Nesbit park, and used Carolina Thread Trail "clues" to link to this trail. We did hike the full trail to Walnut Creek side - as others have mentioned there are some rough/rugged spots so a true MTB is recommended, but hiking in sturdy shoes gets the job done too.
Beautiful trail overall.
I like riding my bike here because it's convenient and connects three parks. Portions of the trail follow a creek. It is about a half mile or less from Main Street, restaurants and breweries.
This is a great greenway in Hendersonville, NC that connects Jackson Park to Patton Park and on to Berkeley Park. Great for a run or a bike ride with kids, you can really get the feel of being out in nature while still in a small city. Possible plans to extend the trail north to Fletcher and perhaps Sierra Nevada and south perhaps as far as the Flat Rock Park and even Carl Sandburg NHS make this potentially a real draw for visitors to the area as well as locals. A word of warning, sections of the trail near Jackson Park and another section South of Patton Park tend to flood after heavy rains. City maintenance does a great job of getting things back in shape quickly.
The trail is beautiful, flat and less than 5 minutes from Downtown Hendersonville. With five parking areas along the trail, it is easily accessible. Its new Born Learning Trail, which begins at the Berkley Park end of the trail, is a great place to take kids. The parking lots on 7th Avenue and North Main are probably the most convenient for those with disabilities.
Our local club hosts a walking event along the Oklawaha Greenway three times a week. Our "Amble & Ramble" provides much needed exercise and social interaction along beautiful and well maintained trails.
This is a wonderful Greenway just a short walk from Main Street Hendersonville connecting some great parks along a creek. Lots of potential for expansion and connection with other paths in the future.
I love the Swamp Rabbit Trail and give it a 5 star but it does need to be repaved because it makes for a very bumpy ride.
Great Saturday ride! Path is shady and wide.. saw lots of dogs 🐾
This trail has a lot of pros but one big con. Pros are: extremely well maintained (hats off to those maintaining it), no big inclines which is great if you have joint pain like I do, freakin' AWESOME. suspension bridge, beautiful walnut trees and blackberry bushes, trail follows river so nice views of that. Con: noise from highway can be heard during nearly the entire hike. This is a major turn off for me because when I hike, I want to be immersed in the sites and sounds of nature and leave the outside world behind.
