Torrence Creek Greenway

Great walk

October, 2020 by mckaigeileen

I live in the neighborhood so I go all the time. I especially love it when there are few people and most of what I hear are the birds. Most if it is shaded but there is also a walkway that leads to an open area where you can feel the warm sun as well. The only downside is that there are a number of people who don’t bother to clean up after there dog.

Palmetto Trail (Peak to Prosperity Passage)

Nice Ride

October, 2020 by malcolmwheels

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.

Palmetto Trail (Peak to Prosperity Passage)

Peaceful & solitary. Trestles need repairs

August, 2020 by ran2slow

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.

Great ride! The part through the park is under construction. Will definitely be back!

nice ride

August, 2020 by nja652

A nice ride through the city connecting several parks. Fairly flat with several turns and some great scenery. Only complaint is the northern part of the trail has a lot of street crossings and can be a little confusing to navigate back on the trail. Will definitely ride again though.

Bakers Creek Greenway

not really a trail

June, 2020 by jodi7mercedes

This is not really a trail it’s more of a walk through a neighborhood you legit walk through streets at some point to make it all the way around
