North Augusta Greeneway Park

NA Greenway partially closed

April, 2021 by ezxvpj9ea2

Beautiful trail for all ages of cyclists. Started at Bergen trailhead, but trail was closed at Cypress Road, so we had to turn around. Workers said they will be closing it all the way north to the bridge. Not sure how long work will take.

New River Linear Trail

nice little walk

April, 2021 by aryannamwalker

Fun little walking trail that we like to take our pup on. We like going to the right towards the river at the end. I just wish it wasn’t so straight however I realize it’s an old railroad track.

New River Linear Trail

Not bad

April, 2021 by 8gbmxnkwh5

The mulched path from the parking lot to the “trail” is definitely the nicest part. Too bad it’s so short. The “trail” is really just a service road for some power lines. The power lines stretch the entire length, which isn’t terrible but it isn’t ideal. You’re essentially walking through people’s back yards for some of the trail and it even runs across the street of a neighborhood. But get into the marsh area towards the end and it’s quite nice. There’s even a little roofed bench out there to sit at for a while if you’d like. You’re not very likely to run across anyone else out there.

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!

Three Rivers Greenway

Can't wait to explore all of the trails along the Three Rivers Greenway. The Cayce Riverwalk is AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL.

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.

Awesome old rail bed trail!

West Ashley Bikeway

We loved the natural part of this trail. Saw great wildlife and had a wonderful time. Need the trail start more easy to find...may be a google issue, but it's hard find where to start.

Baxter Village Trail

Amazing Date Hike

February, 2021 by joyner.precious.2

My boyfriend & I took our dog on this hike. It was so much fun. Make sure that you follow the signs because there are so many different trails intertwining throughout the hike. Using the map is ideal in a few places but mostly, just follow the signs. It was an amazing day hike, however; I’d recommend going earlier during the day because we got to the end of the trial & it was sunset. The most beautiful sunset view I’ve seen in a while. We walked back through the neighborhood because it was dark, that was also beautiful & very well lit. We will definitely be back.

New River Linear Trail

nice,quiet and straight

February, 2021 by deedovale

It’s a nice easy walk. You can’t get lost and there is signage explaining the area and sights. There are no restrooms or portopotty - So go To the restroom before you start your walk.
