Piedmont Medical Center Trail

Well Maintained

August, 2018 by kinjamyhaz

We started at the area close to The Pump House. I believe the trail is longer than 2.5 miles. Scenery is nice. Somewhat shaded.

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.

Lower McAlpine Creek, McMullen Creek & Four Mile Creek Greenways

Favorite Greenway in Charlotte

July, 2018 by tjonesy

Great greenway for bikers. I used to ride this trail almost every day. Most people you encounter on the trail are friendly and courteous.

Park at the start of the trail off Pineville-Matthews Road and you'll have an almost 12 mile ride roundtrip. At the end of the trail in one direction there's a Starbucks, so it's also a great place to grab a cup of coffee before you head back.

The trail is pretty open on the 4 mile section and then gets heavily populated with walkers, joggers and families on the 1.75 mile section that heads to Piper Glen. On weekends you'll spend a lot of time navigating around folks.

Well maintained paved and gravel roads and wooden boardwalks. When there's a lot of rain it tends to flood in certain areas. Be very careful on days when it's rained and the boardwalks are wet. They're extremely slick and I've seen riders take really bad falls.

A lot of great wildlife to look at. I've seen snakes, turtles, herons, hawks, possums and loads of deer.

The look of the greenway changes a lot with the seasons so the ride never gets boring.

Piedmont Medical Center Trail

Fun & Challenging

July, 2018 by frankhamrickjr

The trail is now 3.3 miles I believe & has some good hills to climb. It’s a beautiful ride, great atmosphere, safe & has some wonderful places to relax afterwards (Grape Vine, Brass Tap, etc).

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.

Heritage Trail (SC)

Lovely

July, 2018 by nebaker

The trail is lovely and shady. It has a bucolic feel to it and winds past the old Park Seed location. Not much change in elevation, so it's good if you have small children or need to push a stroller or wheelchair. Good for gentle walking to get back in shape after surgery, too! :)

Twelve Mile Creek Trail

Nice and Shaded

July, 2018 by kinjamyhaz

This is a nice trail that backs up to a neighborhood. It is adphalted and smooth. It can be deceiving in that you see a lot of gravel before seeing the trail.

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.

Kings Mountain Gateway Trail

Too Hilly

June, 2018 by kinjamyhaz

Trail is ok. Not a fan of hills after living where I did before. Trail is clean and shaded somewhat.

Nice tree lined trail.

Lower McAlpine Creek, McMullen Creek & Four Mile Creek Greenways

Rode after a week of rain. The trail was wet and muddy. Even with that it was enjoyable. A mixture of crushed stone, asphalt and boardwalks. Saw lots of wildlife including 6 deer.
