Point Lookout Trail

Trail run

January, 2022 by misch.7

First trail run of my NC citizenship and it was awesome. All paved, beautiful day and beautiful scenery. Will definitely be back. All uphill followed by all downhill. 7.1 round trip.

Wilma Dykeman Greenway

Great connector

December, 2021 by funkykittyrecords

The Wilma Dykeman Greenway is a sweet, new, multi-use trail. There are walkers, runners, skaters, dogs, and families along the paved walking path.

The dedicated two-way bike lanes make riding this a breeze. There is room for faster bikers to pass and no worry about cars as the bike lanes are protected by a low concrete barrier.

This trail takes you all along the River Arts District, where you can stop for coffee, food, galleries, and more. There are crossings, which should definitely be used because the road is pretty busy.

There are plenty of places to park for free, either along the route on the street or in the lots along Riverside Drive/Lyman St. Parking closest to Smoky Park Supper Club or White Duck Taco will give you the entire expanse of the trail rather than starting in the middle. Take the greenway all the way to Amboy Rd, where you can continue to go to French Broad River Park and the Greenway through Carrier Park, all the way out to Hominy Creek River Park.

*I've also rollerbladed on the Wilma Dykeman Greenway. There can be debris (branches, stones, etc.) in the bike lanes and the walking path, making it slightly treacherous for blading.

Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail

Only for casual activities

December, 2021 by brianikmc

This is a great trail for walkers and casual riders. As a moderately cyclist this was a disappointment. Only half of it is broken up onto random sections in Greenville. A great place to ride with kids or those with similar capabilities. As far as a training trail it’s pretty hard to get excited about it.

Doodle Rail Trail

Bridge out!

November, 2021 by joyruebush

We started out in Easley, the parking lot is not very big and we were pulling a trailer which we had to park behind a restaurant across the street. Not a big deal, but just be aware if you are in anything bigger than a car. We came to a dead end at one of the bridges that had huge holes in it. So we never made it to Pickens because of this as we saw no signs to get around this. So I estimate the last 2 miles were not traveled. So we just turned around and returned to the start and started the trail again! Nice city trail except for the bridge out.

Point Lookout Trail

Great ride uphill

October, 2021 by swordinhandnow

Real scenic. Steady rise. Just the right distance to and from.

Riverwalk Greenway (Pigeon Forge)

no bike riding today

October, 2021 by eggznham

Started from patriot park, crossed street to start trail through a neighborhood, rode .5 of a mile and unable to continue due to closed crossing and construction for water pipes. Hopefully will open soon but we will not be here.

Brevard Bike Path

Easy town ride

October, 2021 by swordinhandnow

First time riding. Short and easy. Gravel path on last bit a little narrow and challenging to avoid walker’s. Lovely. It would be nice to finish or widen last half.

Little Tennessee River Greenway (Franklin)

Walk while RVing

Great Trail…poor signage

September, 2021 by sandymo

Rode end to end on the largest section of the trail from Greenville to past Travelers Rest and back. As others have said, finding the “real” trail out of town is pretty tough. There are way too many unmarked options. We tried two before finally finding a third and following a few cyclists that looked like they were riding for some distance. It’s beautiful in the city, but they really do need good signage. This is also a trail to cruise and enjoy until you get well out of town. Its crowded, even on a Wednesday.

construction!

September, 2021 by don.metcalf

Construction at Patriot Park. Curtails almost half of the loop around the park.

Sunday Afternoons Cleveland park and beyond airplane

September, 2021 by rlbullock

Too crowded with walkers and little kids for a pleasant ride. Groups of walkers block path and do not move to side. Some areas too narrow and with blind corners. Two bike wrecks I know of in 40 minutes due to walkers and little kids running out in front of bikes. Not a good experience.
