Great place to walk the dogs and enjoy a good day out in the woods...

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

Very Nicely Paved Trail to Travelers Rest

September, 2019 by stvatandem

My wife and I rode our tandem from the parking area off Lakehurst St up to Travelers Rest (TR) on a sunny Thursday morning. Being a weekday, there were no crowds to contend with. The trail is well kept and a pleasure to ride. Yes, the trail is a little hard to follow in the downtown area due to the many intersections with park paths - the signage still needs improvement. A map of the downtown section was helpful for us, since we were new to the trail. There is one place downtown where you will need to ride on Furman College Way (street) because the actual trail goes up steps. It's about 0.2 mile long.
As you head towards TR the trail takes a "jog" at Willard St. There are tight turns on either end of a small bridge over the Reedy River.
There are two other road crossings that require extra caution due to high traffic (and no traffic lights) - West Blue Ridge Dr ( Rt-235) and Watkins Bridge Rd.
There are many places to take a break or grab a bite in TR. The ride from Greenville to TR is a gentle uphill grade. The trail itself goes another 2.2 miles north of Center St. This section is a little hillier.
Overall, a good trail to ride on.

North Augusta Greeneway Park

Great trail in urban setting

September, 2019 by chadmain

Amazing trail with numerous access points!!! Parked at Bergen Road & went north approx. 1/2 mile to Rippling Creek Lane. There is no parking at Rippling Creek Lane. Walked the entire length to River Club Golf Course - approx. 7 miles (with return trip - 14 miles). The trail was all asphalt with tunnels and bridges for busy roads/railroad tracks. There was a lot of people on the trail biking, jogging, walking, and skating but it was wide enough to accommodate everyone!!! The trail has a gradual slope but was not rolling hills so is easy for all to navigate. There were all ages of people on the trail. There were a lot of trees along the trail so it was relatively shaded. There is a restroom about 0.3 miles south where the north trail and south trails meet (mile marker 0.0N/0.0S). There are no signs anywhere on the trail telling about this restroom except at the park where the restroom is located. I will definitely do this trail again!!! With all the trees of different varieties, I suspect the fall colors will be great!!!

North Augusta Greeneway Park

not bad

August, 2019 by sdspencerdaily

Great for walking and running. Needs some repairs for the bikers. To make it even better you can tie palmetto trail. If you live in north augusta you can make it it a 28 mile trail and it is amazing.

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

For a few miles

August, 2019 by timmy0728

This is in a nice area.
The trail is paved. Mostly level, has a couple small hills.

However, I found it difficult to get a good run going.
The trail is marked but still a little confusing. Some due to construction, some due to arrows on path the took the trail to a sidewalk? Another runner confused at same spot.
I asked a local who did give me advice on what way to go, which helped or I would have been even more confused on which way to go.

This should not deter you if in the area and want to get some miles in.


North Augusta Greeneway Park

A good trail!

July, 2019 by jeanette0815

I reside in Augusta and go to this trail when I want a challenge! It up hill going to the turn around point! Fats ride back to entrance! Only issue is depending on the time of day! A lot of walkers so have to get around when large group and cut into your pace! The crossing across the street can be a bit confusing but still a great ride!

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

Nice trail, well connected

June, 2019 by modiorne

Today was my first time riding the Swamp Rabbit (used the recumbent trike). I parked near the Zoo off of Lakehurst, lot had a lot of trees for use about all day shade. Used the parks paved trail and the signs to connect with the SR. Agree with other reviews that the signage in town might be a little confusing, the Trail is mixed in with the park's paths, but you'll want to see the sights here anyway - use the map or an app, and the way becomes clear. The connector to the lower part of the Trail will require some map reading or familiarity with G-ville.
Love the places where Greenville Spinners (local bike club) have marked the trail, and the markers for parking, restrooms, etc.
Trail was well kept, very wide in places and everyone using it respected lanes, passing, etc. It was well used by walkers, runners, bikers, saw roller-blades and a Razor scooter, but it never felt crowded. Good sight lines, no blind corners on the main Trail up to Travelers Rest. Grades were easy. Lots of shady trees. Anyone could ride this trail.
There are plenty of places to stop and rest, use the facilities, stock back up.
Like a lot of rail/trails you don't want to let a tire wander off the path. In the downtown park area you will be sharing the paths with everyone and anything - usual "pay attention" applies.

If you want to introduce someone to a rail/trail - this is a great one.

North Augusta Greeneway Park

love this trail

May, 2019 by lynseyekema

This is great for first timers learning to road cycle. It starts around i20 and ends around the lovely town of Hammond’s Ferry in North Augusta. Bike down to HF and stop by the Larder or Manuels for a great meal before heading back. Fabulous 14 mile ride under tree canopy. A few stop signs along the way and other types of road sharing.

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

first time

May, 2019 by dloweatl

I rode the trail for the first time yesterday. The other reviews are very accurate
Positives
1. the trail has no big hills, so it is very nice.
2. it goes right through downtown Greenville so you get to go right next to the falls.
3. once you get a mile or two north of Greenville it is very scenic and rural, very relaxing.
4. the trail is well maintained. grass along the side is cut nicely.
5. It goes by Furman, i had never visited Furman.

Negatives
1. The signage through downtown Greenville is terrible. Some people were critical of the train through town. I think of it the other way. It is really not a trail through downtown. SOmeone figured a way to get from the the zoo south of town to the trail north of town and i give them credit. YOu can't go fast, there are some tough corners, you have to watch out for pedestrians because some is on a sidewalk. But that's great they could figure it out. But i got lost twice trying to get through. Signs are needed telling you where to go.
2. The path is bumpy. There are a lot of tree root bumps in the trail. It is not terrible yet but will be in a year or two.
3. Someone complained there are a lot of road to cross. There are but they are all ok, except one. There is a 4 lane highway to cross with a small median. No stop light. SOmeone is going to get killed or hurt bad there, the cars are going 55+ and were pretty steady when i crossed. I know it's a big expense but i hope it's on the list of 'wants'.

There were a few businesses along the way. One bar if you wanted a beer just north of Greenville. And a few things in Travelers Rest. There were some other reviews that said there were a lot of businesses on the trail, not so.

I am from Atlanta, it was nice to bring my bike up and use the trail. Thank you to the people of Greenville for having the foresight to building this nice trail.

Augusta Canal Trail

Excellent trail

March, 2019 by markmdye

Very nice, well maintained trail. Lots of parking at the north end near the locks beginning the Augusta Canal. The trail is both dirt and paved between the Savannah River and the Augusta Canal. You actually are using the canal's tow path used by animals to pull barges down the canal over 100 years ago. Walk from locks to I-20 underpass and back is 4 miles.

Fantastic trail for dog walking

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

Always a Pleasure

November, 2018 by mstelljes1

While not overly difficult and relatively short, Swamp Rabbit is one of my favorites for several reasons: • Places to stop and eat in GVille and Trav Rest • Condition of trail is never an issue since main path is paved entire way • Scenery is both rural and urban, with a ride by/thru Furman University campus a nice bonus • Slope of trail provides some gains and drops in elevation - nothing brutal but I am not a fan of “flat” for long stretches • An Urban experience with plenty of places to shop and eat in downtown Greenville • ONLY DRAWBACK is 3-4 very busy crossings with heavy traffic
