10/9/21 Trail was closed near mile 5. Could see a truck and bulldozer. First time riding this trail and had no prewarning that it was closed. Will try it again one day.
Beautiful trees and view of the river. Not to hard.
I rode this trail 11 May 2021 on my Catrike. At that time there was no construction on the trail itself although it appeared that there may have been some minor work being done on one of the trailhead parking areas on the southern end. The trail is absolutely delightful. Super smooth, the trail is a full 12 feet wide with a nice center lane marking for the full length of the trail. The only bump on the entire trail was in the bottom of an underpass where there was a length of grating to allow drainage. They could have done a better job of matching the heights on that!
I was staying at a B&B on Bay Street about a mile from the Depot so that is where I got on the trail, by biking from my home away from home. Hitting the trail I headed north until I ran out of trail, then reversed course until I ran out of trail on the southern end, then reversed again back to my starting point at the Depot. By the time I got back to the B&B my GPS told me I had gone just over 25 miles., I didn’t see many military jets while on the trail but I certainly heard them. The trail goes quite close to Merrit Field, a Marine Corps Air Station, and they are quite active.
We enjoyed our ride. Felt safe. Lots of people on the trail in the morning.
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.
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.
This trail is a must when in Beaufort SC. It’s wide and paved and scenic.
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.
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!
