Blue Ridge Railroad Historical Trail

Peaceful....once you find it!

September, 2020 by nealshop1

Wanted to provide additional sets for anyone interested in this trail. This trail does NOT lead to the Stumphouse tunnel. Finding the trailhead was a challenge for us, so I want to provide details: Park in the Isaqueena Falls lot and walk across the little wood bridge from the lot toward the falls. As soon as you cross the bridge bear left and you'll see the trailhead sign. The beginning of the trail is TOUGH...narrow, steep uphill, lots of rocks and roots. Just push through that first part and the rest is easier. Character limit here won't let me post more, see TripAdvisor.

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

Roadies Beware

September, 2020 by litespeedvb

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.

Heritage Trail (SC)

Best kept secret of Greenwood

August, 2020 by ran2slow

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.

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

great trail

August, 2020 by nja652

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!

Thermal Belt Rail-Trail

Great Ride

July, 2020 by captbillhall

Ride the full length and back. Great scenery on the northern end. Quaint towns on the southern.

Doodle Rail Trail

Nice ride

July, 2020 by nja652

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.

Doodle Rail Trail

nice ride

July, 2020 by nja652

Very easily accessible. Some good scenery with farm land and a few hills. A great ride if you’re looking for a good workout.

Doodle Rail Trail

good hills

July, 2020 by kholbent

Enjoyed the country setting and the challenge of some hills. Beautiful scenery and marked well once you get on it. Had some trouble finding the start but met some locals so NBD. Fun ride!

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

fun ride

July, 2020 by kholbent

Super fun ride with a lot scenery changes. Stop at the ST Grocery and Cafe for some local food. Only minor improvements needed are a few pavement issues from roots (need to marked or repaired) and better signage in some areas. It was a great day!

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

Southern Portion is NOT GOOD

July, 2020 by johnsonlydia

Poorly marked and poorly paved in multiple portions.

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

Worth the trip

June, 2020 by marke71116

Drove from Charlotte and cycled from Cleveland Park to Travelers Rest. Not particularly crowded on a Friday a generally everyone considerate of passing edicate. Pavement is a little bumpy in places but overall an enjoyable 22.7 mile ride.

Oklawaha Greenway

Oklawaha Greenway under Construction

June, 2020 by tom193

This trail was a big disappointment. The southern most section (about 1/3 of the total trail) was all torn up, with mud, course construction gravel and rough construction plates making this section almost un-passable. And then the trail abruptly stops, with absolutely no way to continue. After we made our way back to the parking lot, we packed up up our bikes, and headed to the northern section, which was nice - but too short to drive 2 hours to ride it.

BTW: The address for parking (763 Glover Street) does not exist. We had to ask passersby to find where to park. Disappointed in TrailLink.

P.S. We didn't see anyone working on the trail, so check with someone in the know before visiting.
