Best Ride in Charleston

May, 2021 by normanbowers

Trail is on the south side of the bridge well separated from traffic with a low concrete wall. The views of Charleston and the harbor are well worth the gradual climb to the center of the bridge. Safe parking and modern restrooms are available at the Mount Pleasant Visitors Center in the park at the east end of the bridge. You can extend the ride by riding the sidewalk and streets south to the South Carolina Aquarium and Ft. Sumter visitors center, just stay with the streets closest to the harbor to minimize traffic.

Swamp Fox Passage (Palmetto Trail)

Hiking & Mountain Bike Trail Only

May, 2021 by normanbowers

This is a hiking and mountain bike trail. Not suitable for kids and novice bike riders.
Obstacles are tree roots and mudholes. In wet weather the mudholes are world class.

West Ashley Bikeway

We loved the natural part of this trail. Saw great wildlife and had a wonderful time. Need the trail start more easy to find...may be a google issue, but it's hard find where to start.

FLAT ENOUGH FOR A TANDEM BIKE

January, 2021 by utpaduke

My wife and I rode our tandem bike on this trail Mon-Thurs beginning on 4Jan21. We parked off of Richardson Rd and went about 6 miles out and back each day. There are no bathrooms. There were very few riders/walkers. When Mel says she liked the trail, she means it was not hard pedaling! This one met her requirements and she was willing to go back daily for an hour of easy exercise! Watch out for two road crossings where the trail changes to the flip side of the canal! I enjoy a bike trail that is clean of trash, and this one was very clean! We had a great time!

My son’s and I walked this trail Oct 1-3 it was wet and muddy. Great time for bonding. Prepare for wet shoes. Looks like they are preparing to do several upgrades.

Corona trail walk

April, 2020 by sydneysbrylane

It’s a nice trail and I enjoyed it, but I wouldn’t recommend it during the summertime. It’s open and there’s no shade. It’s amazing during the wintertime though.

Edisto Nature Trail

Closed for Maintenance

March, 2020 by gaineyap

Made the drive out hoping to get out for a walk with the kids but the gate is locked and a sign says it is closed.

Relaxing

A great short trail after riding for awhile. Peaceful, relaxing, and perfect for a short burst of nature.
