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”.

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.

Doodle Rail Trail

Good Workout

July, 2018 by ajw

It may only be 7 miles long, but it is mostly ups and downs most of the way. I was in 2nd gear for a couple of the hills. Wide path in good condition. New parking area and restrooms in Easley with plans for a new terminal area in Pickens. Shaded for much of the way. Worth the drive.

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

swamp rabbit trail

July, 2018 by regressme2

We did this trail by chance (bad weather in NC forced to reconsider SC). Our group was two families with teenage boys. We had a great time and travelled approx. 25 miles. We started from downtown (rental shop) and headed north and ended at the river walk area (back downtown Greenville). What a great surprise, a waterfall right in downtown. Fantastic! The course is rather urban but this has advantages. There were some food stops, ice cream stops, and even some brew pub stops. I recommend renting a bike at one of the places just north of downtown. There are a couple. The downtown shop also does Segway tours and you can find the shop closed.

I highly recommend this trail and stay for dinner in Greenville.

Point Lookout Trail

Rockslide - June 2018

July, 2018 by dockaos

A great trail, but please be aware of rockslide approximately 1.6 miles from Old Fort terminus. Debris can be walked through, but you will need to dismount.

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

Completed it from both ends

June, 2018 by kjclow

From the north end, the trail is relatively flat and an easy ride through downtown Greenville and on to Cleveland Park and the zoo. The biggest issue with the trail is signage. The actual trailhead in Traveler's Rest is not really clear, even though you can see the trail and there is a lot of parking along it. Once you get closer and then through downtown, there are a lot of side trails but they are also marked Swamp Rabbit. Use your GPS and downloaded trail map. Once you leave Cleveland Park, you will start to get into some hills. The southern end of this portion of the trail is even worse to find. It starts at the intersection of South Pleasantburg Dr and Cleveland Street. There's a bowling alley on Cleveland St that may let you park there. Ask for permission!

If you want a real challenge, take Cleveland St past Pleasantburg Dr into neighborhoods to Perkinsmill Rd or East Perkinsmill Rd (much hillier choice) . The two roads will meet up just before going under I85, which is where you pick up the southern end of the Swamp Rabbit Trail. This will take you down to Lake Conestee. Watch for turns marked on the streets. Overall ride is about 24 miles from Traveler's Rest to lake Conestee. This last section is about 6 miles and will give you about 600 feet of elevation gain.

Oklawaha Greenway

Outhouses

May, 2018 by 124rox

I walk the Park 3 days a week with a group of 10-12 people, we carry garbage bags and pick up litter along the way and enjoy it in every season. One big issue is lack of port-o-potties along the route. Walking stimulates, in many ways. It would be so easy to install and maintain port-o-potties at several locations along the Oklawaha Greenway and make it so much more enjoyable. In particular, I would like to request one at the Berkley parking lot, where there is a picnic table, water fountain, etc., and is at our 1/2 way walking distance. Thank You so much!

Riding the trails

May, 2018 by robinchilds

I love the trail and looking forward to alot of summer riding.
I have two issues though.
1) the bumps are AWEFUL and make the ride less enjoyable and if going the distance, making it hard to enjoy.
2) we sure could use a bridge or two over the 2 VERY BUSY roads we must cross.
