Love this trail in pigeon forge. Can get on at multiple locations and enjoy nature throughout this walk!
Excellent scenery and very well maintained. The road crossings are clearly marked but I felt there were quite a few and it somewhat disrupts your momentum. The trail is very well maintained and I thoroughly enjoyed riding it. Will definitely be back. For the mountain bikers, there are some off road areas to explore.
Biggest thing to note, this trail is either all uphill or all downhill depending which end you begin on. It’s gorgeous, well paved for the most part, and very scenic. Will be back!
Average trail going north from Greenville. Greenville south is beautiful, particularly in city.
I'm submitting this as a review because I can't find another place to send it. After the recent rains, someone used sand to repair the dirt path that connects the French Broad River Greenway to the French Broad River Park (it goes underneath the Amboy Road overpass). Please don't use sand! It makes it difficult and dangerous to ride a bike through the area. Please use dirt instead.
loved the trail only the Far East end hard to navigate
Great trail with diverse features from Mt biking in Pisgah Forest to urban trail in Brevard. Oskar Blues Brewery side trip a highlight!
I really have to congratulate Pigeon Forge on this one. This trail along the river is very well done. If you park at Patriot Park you leave the park and cross the street then follow sidewalk past several houses before you get to where it looks like bike trail so it can be confusing if you don't know that. Also when you get to the Island you have to cross a couple of bridges and take a right where the trail goes behind a building back to the river so also confusing. My first time on this trail I had to ask an Island employee. Very worth it though! Trail goes under the bridges so you are not crossing the parkway.
This trail is alongside Veterans Parkway in Pigeon Forge. It's a good ride if you like a lot of hills because almost none of it is flat. You will either be riding uphill or coasting down pretty much the entire way. At the Sevierville end the trail goes back towards town, past an old church and to the community center, which is also a great place to park and use the bathroom.
My wife and I rode our tandem from the parking area off Lakehurst St up to Travelers Rest (TR) on a sunny Thursday morning. Being a weekday, there were no crowds to contend with. The trail is well kept and a pleasure to ride. Yes, the trail is a little hard to follow in the downtown area due to the many intersections with park paths - the signage still needs improvement. A map of the downtown section was helpful for us, since we were new to the trail. There is one place downtown where you will need to ride on Furman College Way (street) because the actual trail goes up steps. It's about 0.2 mile long.
As you head towards TR the trail takes a "jog" at Willard St. There are tight turns on either end of a small bridge over the Reedy River.
There are two other road crossings that require extra caution due to high traffic (and no traffic lights) - West Blue Ridge Dr ( Rt-235) and Watkins Bridge Rd.
There are many places to take a break or grab a bite in TR. The ride from Greenville to TR is a gentle uphill grade. The trail itself goes another 2.2 miles north of Center St. This section is a little hillier.
Overall, a good trail to ride on.
This is in a nice area.
The trail is paved. Mostly level, has a couple small hills.
However, I found it difficult to get a good run going.
The trail is marked but still a little confusing. Some due to construction, some due to arrows on path the took the trail to a sidewalk? Another runner confused at same spot.
I asked a local who did give me advice on what way to go, which helped or I would have been even more confused on which way to go.
This should not deter you if in the area and want to get some miles in.
Today was my first time riding the Swamp Rabbit (used the recumbent trike). I parked near the Zoo off of Lakehurst, lot had a lot of trees for use about all day shade. Used the parks paved trail and the signs to connect with the SR. Agree with other reviews that the signage in town might be a little confusing, the Trail is mixed in with the park's paths, but you'll want to see the sights here anyway - use the map or an app, and the way becomes clear. The connector to the lower part of the Trail will require some map reading or familiarity with G-ville.
Love the places where Greenville Spinners (local bike club) have marked the trail, and the markers for parking, restrooms, etc.
Trail was well kept, very wide in places and everyone using it respected lanes, passing, etc. It was well used by walkers, runners, bikers, saw roller-blades and a Razor scooter, but it never felt crowded. Good sight lines, no blind corners on the main Trail up to Travelers Rest. Grades were easy. Lots of shady trees. Anyone could ride this trail.
There are plenty of places to stop and rest, use the facilities, stock back up.
Like a lot of rail/trails you don't want to let a tire wander off the path. In the downtown park area you will be sharing the paths with everyone and anything - usual "pay attention" applies.
If you want to introduce someone to a rail/trail - this is a great one.
