Point Lookout Trail

Nice trail to bike/walk.

May, 2020 by timfisher58

We tore it up on the ebikes. No more struggling for me.

Doodle Rail Trail

Good workout

May, 2020 by fenderbassist87

Excellent scenery and very well maintained. The road crossings are clearly marked but I felt there were quite a few and it somewhat disrupts your momentum. The trail is very well maintained and I thoroughly enjoyed riding it. Will definitely be back. For the mountain bikers, there are some off road areas to explore.

Thermal Belt Rail-Trail

Easy ride for all ages of the family!

Point Lookout Trail

ALL uphill or ALL downhill

April, 2020 by nlevine94

Biggest thing to note, this trail is either all uphill or all downhill depending which end you begin on. It’s gorgeous, well paved for the most part, and very scenic. Will be back!

Shelby Rail-Trail

Thermal Belt Rail-Trail

A Smooth Ride Through Small Towns

March, 2020 by montygwooten

The trail was a pleasant discovery: newly minted and smooth asphalt all the way. Congrats to the folks who put this trail together. The northern 5 miles were my favorite with its rural feel and lengthy stretches without crossings. From there south there are numerous crossing. Those in the center of Spindale require a watchful eye and steady concentration.

Purple Martin Greenway

Lovely walk

March, 2020 by sleshane

I take my dogs here all the time. It is paved so it is very family friendly.

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

February, 2020 by rbmrbm744_tl

Average trail going north from Greenville. Greenville south is beautiful, particularly in city.

French Broad River Greenway

Recent maintenance

February, 2020 by barbara.howell.ms

I'm submitting this as a review because I can't find another place to send it. After the recent rains, someone used sand to repair the dirt path that connects the French Broad River Greenway to the French Broad River Park (it goes underneath the Amboy Road overpass). Please don't use sand! It makes it difficult and dangerous to ride a bike through the area. Please use dirt instead.

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

Thermal Belt Rail-Trail

Gem for Rutherford Co.

December, 2019 by drbradfrazier

My family and I rode 2 days over the Thanksgiving holiday. The trail is paved like new with many convenient access points. Can’t wait to ride it again!

Brevard Bike Path

Beers to Backwoods

December, 2019 by englehornr

Great trail with diverse features from Mt biking in Pisgah Forest to urban trail in Brevard. Oskar Blues Brewery side trip a highlight!
