Beautiful, well-maintained path. There are a number of road crossings at the south end, but otherwise it's a great trip with nice scenery.

Spanish Moss Trail

mostly fantastic

June, 2020 by ccoombs1

This trail was wonderful. We went on a weekday and it was not crowded. I don’t recommend parking in the first lot. Store next to it has bars on the windows which never feels like a safe place to leave my vehicle. Second lot had a nice Parker’s store which welcomes bikers to use the facilities. Very nice place. There are many road crossings but are well marked with lights at the busy ones. The trail ends at rebaut road before reaching Port Royal. Crossing the road is scary but worth it. The town is very nice with a couple Of good restaurants.

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.

Closed for Maintenance

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.

Fantastic trail. Great scenery. Smooth concrete throughout. However, was on the trail yesterday and some person, or persons have broken bottles on the trail beginning just beyond the tunnel all the way to the Clarendon trail head. I rode my bike through a couple of the areas where there was glass and was fortunate that it didn’t pop my tire. Met several cyclists along the way who weren’t as fortunate. Seems as if this might have been done intentionally. I ride the trail approximately 5 times a week and just started noticing the glass breakage within the last week. Cyclists please be aware!

Beautiful well maintained trail

October, 2019 by anna.roberts

This is a really wonderful trail to ride with your family. Pretty stops with a few nice drinking fountains. Historical markers throughout. Beautiful water views. We pull a baby trailer and it’s a smooth ride for our baby and free of debris spraying on them. I’m looking forward to the expansion!

Relaxing

West Ashley Greenway

Not Safe

March, 2019 by stomperjohn

Correction: The previous review should read:
There have been several violent assaults on women on this trail. People keep saying its safe! However, I will bet the women who have been violently assaulted DON'T feel this way! THINK ABOUT IT! Read for yourself: http://www.live5news.com/2019/03/12/police-looking-man-who-assaulted-woman-west-ashley-greenway-monday-night-2/
How safe is the trail if people keep getting assaulted?
