Trail is nice and would have enjoyed more except portions of the trail are closed for maintenance. We parked at Travelers Rest with intention of riding to Greenville. Being new to riding though, lesson learned. Rating would be higher, but trail is in need of repair.
Have to give the Doodle a 5 due to its varied terrain and smooth surface. Compared to the Swamp Rabbit we rode the day before this was a breath of fresh air. Plenty of amenities at the terminals. Riders and runners were super friendly. Don’t miss this one. May not be as long but I’d say ride it twice or three times if it miles you want but broken pavement you’re looking to miss.
Very bumpy, poor maint on travelers rest to berea section. Detours not marked at all. Downtown section signage is non existent and white arrows only add to confusion. Some pamphlets with maps would be a great help...if you’re going to brag on this trail, make it rideable end to end. Also food along the trail is crazy expensive....ham and cheese $11, really..
We really enjoy the Swamp Rabbit. The path is showing signs of wear with cracks and bumps where tree roots are growing. It is in the process of being redone. We've ridden both weekend and weekday and much prefer weekday riding. The path can get pretty crowded and not everyone obeys the rules of the road. Over all, it's a great ride with great places to stop and shop or eat.
What I like about this trail is that it passes through a heavily wooded area passing over streams and rivers. Very scenic. Also i have never seen more than a few other people when I’ve been there. There are two easy road crossings. Unfortunately one of the bridges has no side rails and some of the boards are in need of repair so use caution when crossing. The trail is somewhat rocky but much improved o er what it used to be.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
This ride was nice. Some good scenery with farm land. Trail is well maintained and good for biking and walking/jogging. The hills are long and gradual and can be a little difficult at times. All in all a great trail for a good workout.
Very easily accessible. Some good scenery with farm land and a few hills. A great ride if you’re looking for a good workout.
