Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

Roadies Beware

September, 2020 by litespeedvb

This trail is the safest route for cyclists wanting to get from Greenville to Travelers Rest and beyond. Unfortunately the trail surface is so rough and broken throughout much of its length that it makes for an extremely unpleasant riding experience for road bikes.

I recommend a bike with suspension when cycling the Swamp Rabbit, or road bikes avoid the use of this trail.

According to Bike Walk Greenville both the city and county have been made aware of the terrible surface conditions on the Swamp Rabbit trail, but they continue to do nothing to make the situation better.

Heritage Trail (SC)

Best kept secret of Greenwood

August, 2020 by ran2slow

This trail is great place for the serious runner to do time trials, which is probably why it is used for a few local races. It's mostly flat with only one incline. Some people are scared of running here because of a quarter mile stretch through a rough-looking neighborhood but after running here weekly for 18 years I've never had a problem. The surface is blacktop and has only a few small patches where freezing has caused the surface to heave up. I like to park near the fountain in uptown Greenwood and run the sidewalk south for a half mile until I hit the trail at the railroad museum. Alternatively, I like to park at the end at Florida Avenue. You can tack on extra mileage by running through Mathews Mill Village or around uptown Greenwood. There is a water fountain near Howard's on Main, just a few hundred yards of the fountain. I wish the city and county cared more about this trail and maintained it regularly - they only seem to pay attention to it before the Festival of Flowers in June.

Ninety Six Town Trail

Nice trail right through town

August, 2020 by ran2slow

I run on this trail regularly. There are good places to park at the western end of the trail, near the depot, and at the Boozer Complex playing fields. The trail is mostly covered with grass and gravel now but if you run slowly it's pretty good. If you don't mind running on the road a good way to extend the run is to continue on the asphalt surface past the Boozer Complex, cross route 34 and then go down Eddy Road where there is very little traffic. There is a restroom at the Boozer Complex and a water fountain that sometimes works.

Palmetto Trail (Peak to Prosperity Passage)

Peaceful & solitary. Trestles need repairs

August, 2020 by ran2slow

This week I ran from the parking area near I-26 to Route 176 in Pomaria and returned to my starting point. This was 3 miles each way so I know it was a small portion of the overall trail. The trail feels secluded and peaceful once you get away from the interstate. I saw several deer and only one other user of the trail. After lots of rain this week the trail was well drained. As a previous reviewer mentioned, the surface is made of chunky rocks which is very bumpy for runners and cyclists. I rolled my ankle twice but fortunately no sprains. My biggest concern is that the trestle boards are in poor condition. I saw several that were broken through that could cause a pedestrian or cyclist to get hurt. I felt a couple boards crunch under me and I'm not a big person. One of the trestles I crossed used man-made boards and it seemed to be in the best condition. The next time they re-surface the trail I hope they use a finer aggregate which would make it more safer for everyone.

great trail

Rode from travelers rest to furman and had a great time. My daughter loved it. There are a lot of scenery changes and plenty of places to stop along the way. Will definitely ride again!

fun ride

July, 2020 by kholbent

Super fun ride with a lot scenery changes. Stop at the ST Grocery and Cafe for some local food. Only minor improvements needed are a few pavement issues from roots (need to marked or repaired) and better signage in some areas. It was a great day!
