Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

first time

May, 2019 by dloweatl

I rode the trail for the first time yesterday. The other reviews are very accurate
Positives
1. the trail has no big hills, so it is very nice.
2. it goes right through downtown Greenville so you get to go right next to the falls.
3. once you get a mile or two north of Greenville it is very scenic and rural, very relaxing.
4. the trail is well maintained. grass along the side is cut nicely.
5. It goes by Furman, i had never visited Furman.

Negatives
1. The signage through downtown Greenville is terrible. Some people were critical of the train through town. I think of it the other way. It is really not a trail through downtown. SOmeone figured a way to get from the the zoo south of town to the trail north of town and i give them credit. YOu can't go fast, there are some tough corners, you have to watch out for pedestrians because some is on a sidewalk. But that's great they could figure it out. But i got lost twice trying to get through. Signs are needed telling you where to go.
2. The path is bumpy. There are a lot of tree root bumps in the trail. It is not terrible yet but will be in a year or two.
3. Someone complained there are a lot of road to cross. There are but they are all ok, except one. There is a 4 lane highway to cross with a small median. No stop light. SOmeone is going to get killed or hurt bad there, the cars are going 55+ and were pretty steady when i crossed. I know it's a big expense but i hope it's on the list of 'wants'.

There were a few businesses along the way. One bar if you wanted a beer just north of Greenville. And a few things in Travelers Rest. There were some other reviews that said there were a lot of businesses on the trail, not so.

I am from Atlanta, it was nice to bring my bike up and use the trail. Thank you to the people of Greenville for having the foresight to building this nice trail.

Thermal Belt Rail-Trail

Great Trail!

January, 2019 by tbuckner

Rode the Thermal Belt Trail in December 2018. This is a great trail, newly-paved for 13+ miles. We have hybrids but you could ride road bikes with no problem. We parked at Bechtler Mint Site and rode to the bridge at Hwy. 74. Perfect surface. Crossed a few roads but they are not big or busy. In that space we traveled through a number of small towns: Ruth, Rutherfordton, Forest City, and Florence. The only drawback is that I prefer countryside scenery. But the trail itself is awesome, with additional improvements to come!

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

Always a Pleasure

November, 2018 by mstelljes1

While not overly difficult and relatively short, Swamp Rabbit is one of my favorites for several reasons: • Places to stop and eat in GVille and Trav Rest • Condition of trail is never an issue since main path is paved entire way • Scenery is both rural and urban, with a ride by/thru Furman University campus a nice bonus • Slope of trail provides some gains and drops in elevation - nothing brutal but I am not a fan of “flat” for long stretches • An Urban experience with plenty of places to shop and eat in downtown Greenville • ONLY DRAWBACK is 3-4 very busy crossings with heavy traffic

Wadsworth Trail

road run

November, 2018 by ninamckenzie52

Honestly I only ran One half of this trail. It was mostly along the road but it wasn’t busy and I enjoyed the views. I ran into the other neighborhoods and got a good 5 miles in. The paved roads were smooth and I felt safe. Next time I will Park at Grace Church and run that side into the wooded area.

Thermal Belt Rail-Trail

nearly complete!

September, 2018 by artgirten

the last 4.8 miles are being prepared for paving! Active construction was seen and good progress being made. When it is complete, it will be over 12 miles of smooth, new pavement.

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

Great Trail !!

September, 2018 by dmckee622

We rode the trail from Taft Road south to The end next to the bowling alley on Cleveland. Very nice trail. Lots of great little shops and cafes in Travelers Rest. Hard to get the wife away from the stores and shops. I would rate it five stars except for lots of "root humps" between Travelers Rest and Greenville. They would be rough for road bikes. Also, needs more signage as you come into Greenville. The trail can be confusing unless you look at Google Maps.

Doodle Rail Trail

Great Trail !!

September, 2018 by dmckee622

We just finished the trail and it was great. This is one trail you should do if you are in the area. Very well maintained. Would be a great trail for road bikes (we rode recumbent trikes). A good many road crossings, but nearly all were vacant of any vehicles. Too bad it's only 7.3 miles. We did the southern part from the park on Fleetwood Drive and added another 2 miles (there and back). The Park on Fleetwood Drive Is a great place to park.

“Best Day Ever” - my 9yr old grandson

September, 2018 by renaytodd

In an attempt to depart from electronics, with much protest, I rented bikes for myself and 9 year old grandson. It was a new adventure to us both. We began our journey downtown and made it to the Swamp Rabbit Cafe to stop for a rest and enjoyed popsicles sold there. We then headed towards Traveler’s Rest. It was perfect weather that morning for a ride and I suggest doing that as opposed to an afternoon ride during summer months. The child who was “forced” to do this, ended our trip with his approval who exclaimed it was the “Best Day Ever”.

Access to Trail

August, 2018 by nebaker

I wish there were more access points to this trail. There is one at the end of Bond Avenue in Mathews Mill Village and one behind Greenwood OB/GYN near West Alexander Avenue. If anyone knows of other places to access the trail, besides the beginning at the train museum and the end at Florida Avenue, I would like to know of them.

Thermal Belt Rail-Trail

Paving today!

July, 2018 by maplover2

Crushed gravel surface from Forest City to Spindale to Ruth with asphalt pavers on the trail today laying down a new 12 ft wide asphalt surface! Nice snowcone stop on the trail at Serendipity Snowcones in Spindale. We parked at the library/gym.
