Townsend Historical Trail

just an okay ride

May, 2021 by callbee59

Just completed the 9 mile trek; somewhat challenging for me cuz I’m out of bike shape. Those of you who ride full time will know what I mean with regards to bike shape. Otherwise, it was quite fun. The surrounding hills are eye candy for me but I have to say that it’s worth a one time ride just to mark it off my list of trails to ride. FYI, I want to ride every one of them before I kick the bucket.

Riverwalk Greenway (Pigeon Forge)

Nice ride!

May, 2021 by beverlyrm55

Easy trail, can stop at various points to enjoy the sites. Riding through the Island when it is crowded is challenging but doable.

Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail

Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail

some rough areas but great trail

March, 2021 by mpwt4fpdup

Very flat and well maintained. Some large sections undergoing some renovations. We stayed at the Embassy Suites Hotel—trail starts right behind hotel. Great weekend trip.

Doodle Rail Trail

Enjoyable and Just Long Enough!

March, 2021 by susan194

There is parking plenty at both the Easley and the Pickens endpoints. We rode bikes from Pickens to Easley, stopped for some ice cream, and then turned around. Logged 16 total miles. It's rolling for a rail trail, not completely flat. You learn to enjoy the downhills and coast, because you will work out on the uphills! The train cars at both ends are neat to see. This trail needs some economic development at both ends! The ice cream was from a QuickiMart kind of place. How wonderful if a real ice cream shop opened! Or maybe a winery or a brewery.... my mind goes wild!

Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail

Awesome trail

March, 2021 by epicslyfox3

We parked at traveler's rest and roller-skated all the way to Greenville. Lots of small declines and slight hills. Some sections closed for maintenance but there was a detour that was not really well maintained. Nevertheless, there were some cool sights. Old train cars, old buildings, swamps, new houses, Furman University, and etc. Nice trail if biking or walking to see nature.

Doodle Rail Trail

Parking along the trail

January, 2021 by kappamega_tl

Intersection of Rice Road and West Arial St . Next to Arial Plant.

Doodle Rail Trail

parking question

January, 2021 by kappamega_tl

Are they road side parking along the trail ? With special needs I can only walk - so I did 1.5 miles from endpoints. I want to do some midsection too.

Doodle Rail Trail

Local favorite

December, 2020 by srael

The Doodle is a beautiful, versatile trail. Challenging hills, sweet slopes to glide down and beautiful vistas make for a pleasant eight mile ride. Sixteen total miles will give you the good cardio workout you are looking for without unpleasant broken pavement.

Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail

Improvements in Progress

December, 2020 by litespeedvb

Back in October 2020 they started repaving the SRT at the Greenville city line and are heading north to Travelers Rest. They are currently about half-way done (5 miles) and are expected to finish by the end of the year. Hallelujah!

Now let’s hope the city of Greenville gets on-board to fix the southern portion of the trail.

Oklawaha Greenway

Nice Little Greenway

November, 2020 by myj27uq2de

Rode my bike on the greenway today. Parked at the parking lot across the street from Berkeley Ball Park, the entry to the greenway is right there. Well paved, wide two lane with lots of park benches, bike service stations, and emergency call boxes along the path. It connects quite a bit of parks along the way, which is nice. You go over and under a few bridges. Lots of local walkers enjoying themselves, everyone was very respectful of personal space. One thing to note, I went a sunny day and it wasn’t muddy until I reached right after the Pets Own Dog Park entry about 0.5 miles from Jackson Park. So if there has been some rain in the week I would recommend going from Berkeley Ball Park to Pets Own Dog Park and skipping Jackson Park.

Doodle Rail Trail

The Doodle Trail

November, 2020 by joeruminski

My wife and I decided to try a new to us trail that we could get to and back in a day from Asheville. The Doodle ended up our destination. We had a great ride. Met friendly people, nice trail had a great lunch in Easley and a good ride back to Pickens. We ride a tandem recumbent bike and had no problems with the hills. We will go back.
