Peak to Prosperity Passage (Palmetto Trail)

clean, easy trail

January, 2024 by bransom49

Rucked it up and back yesterday, full trail. Super clean, easy trail. No incline. Minimal views, good for getting in your miles. Rocks were a pain in the a**. Definitely need some trail friendly shoes. Feet got beat up pretty good. Some campsites along small streams. 6/10. Good for getting time on feet. Won’t be back except for straight forward mileage. Bikes would be solid for stacking miles on a simple trail.

Peak to Prosperity Passage (Palmetto Trail)

not meant for running

December, 2023 by amaybach

Just want to let runners know this trail has a very irregular surface with rocks and grassy patches. I don’t recommend it for running.

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!! ¿¿

Peak to Prosperity Passage (Palmetto Trail)

Perfect Gravel Bike Trail Training Ride

December, 2023 by rwest3

I regularly ride the Trail for training. Once you clear the walkers at the trailheads you can complete efforts with no stops. Several sections have big, loose rock so you’ll want to let some air out.

Savannah Valley Railroad Trail

SVRT

October, 2023 by feltroadbike

Wanted to provide a more recent review. Rode most of the trail yesterday with my wife. It is well marked, well maintained and beautiful ride. The path is hard pack - not concrete or black top so it is not super smooth. There are several things to see and placards to read that explain the features of the old railroad. Also a cemetery from the 1700s and a fun tressel towards the end. The only negatives were that my wife thought there were too many roots. There are roots and I rode a mountain bike so I didn’t really notice them as ‘bad”. Also there is about a 2.5 mile section you have to ride on the road in the middle. It is a country road and traffic was lite and the cars were respectful of us and rode slowly around us. There were benches and picnic tables along the route if you wanted to stop and just sit for a while. We only saw 2 other people walking their dogs. It was a fun trail for novice riders not looking for single track. Enjoy -

Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail

excellent greenway

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

Peak to Prosperity Passage (Palmetto Trail)

It’s a nice ride

June, 2023 by lzrus2018

Did the whole thing yesterday (and of course back). It’s in great shape. Some rocky stretches that is akin to riding in a gravel road. But those are infrequent and temporary. A couple dead spots in a couple trellises but a very nice ride and other than the first terrain after leaving the eastern parking it’s flat.

Evans to Locks Multi-Use Trail

Safer than the road

May, 2023 by brian.amy

Gave it 4 stars for being fairly well maintained and off the road in areas. This is a 4-6’ wide asphalt path combined with sidewalks on a fairly busy road. Yes it is safer than riding / running on side of road, but you still have to clear every intersection / business parking lots 3-4 ways before crossing….and there are a lot. If you want a scenic trail, this is not it. If you want a safe pathway to Savannah River Locks from Evans, this is a good alternative.

Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail

Great trail!

March, 2023 by aringtonjw64

Very nice trail and easy riding, lots of places to stop and things to see. signage through Greenville could be better, especially around the falls.

Cathedral Aisle Trail

Hitchcock Woodd

January, 2023 by errn94

If you are lucky enough to regularly ride a horse, you are indeed a lucky person. If you are a horse person and have an opportunity to ride in Hitchcock Woods then you are a rarified rider for sure. The beauty, peace, depth and rare expanse of Hitchcock Woods is a place that defies description. Whether you walk/run or ride the trails of Hitchcock Woods I doubt you will find many places that will surpass its beauty. Trails by the names such as Devils backbone, Cathedral Aisle, Swampy Cut loop, Mrs. Allen’s ride and Lovers Lane in itself will entice any adventurer to step into this fairytale forest. You won’t be disappointed. Hitchcock woods is a rare gem, a preserved urban forest thanks to the Hitchcock families’ fore-site to maintain an equestrian ‘play ground’ for future generations.

Savannah Valley Railroad Trail

disappointing…

August, 2022 by chiptoe

Parts of it were very pretty, and overall pretty well maintained (but with a fair amount of roots in some areas). But about 1/3 of the 9 miles were on roads with no shoulder. Not busy roads, but not what we expected of a “rail trail”. Also a lot of spiderwebs on the trail.
