Northern portion from Pawleys Island to Litchfield trail has MANY tree roots that have made the trail difficult in certain areas.
…we had plans to ride from Reedy River to Travelers Rest and back. Great parking garage right near the park and trail. Really a great setup for walking the dog and other activities. Tons of restaurants, bars and shops near downtown. That said, I won’t make another attempt at riding this trail again on a Saturday. Way, way too crowded with people for me to feel comfortable riding, and one road crossing on a high speed road that I loathed. Honestly, if you can handle the crowds, you will love it. It’s one of the best things about Greenville and more confident riders can easily build a fun weekend around it.
In our attempt to ride our bikes in all fifty states, we decided on the Swamp Rabbit for our South Carolina achievement. We had optimistic expectations for this highly regarded trail, and we were not let down!
We stayed in a Hampton Inn directly across the trail in Travelers Rest. This was a great location not only for jumping on the trail and pedaling the ten miles to Greenville, but to also take advantage of the charming Main Street of Travelers Rest.
With the thermometer reading forty-two degrees at the outset of our early morning ride in a late March, these two Southern Californians braved the cold to enjoy the beautiful ride through the woods toward Greenville. The trail was fairly flat, smooth, and being taken advantage of by locals out for their early morning walks and jogs.
The highlight for me was reaching downtown Greenville and experiencing the Reedy River and its falls area. Greenville has done a superb job around the falls with exquisite architecture, art installations, and landscaping to enhance the enjoyment of the Reedy Falls area. We continued on for a couple more miles as far as the zoo. It was worth it for more river, art, and beautiful landscape views.
Even though we were in a downtown area, we felt totally safe. Lots of extremely friendly locals, tourists, and families were enjoying the falls, gardens, and trails. This is certainly a destination trail not to be missed. Kudos to Prisma Health for financing and developing this trail and to Greenville and Travelers Rest for maintaining this exceptional trail!
Quiet scenic trail around Beaufort.
I moved to Summerville Nov 2020. I enjoyed this trail until Dec 2021 (one year). Charge cards and cash stolen from the trunk of my car. A police report was taken. I have not felt self nor been back since.
We rode from Pomaria behind Wilsons grocery to Peak and back about 13 miles. Mostly small gravel a few spots still have larger gravel. Flat and very peaceful. Some tresses need some new boards but this is a very nice trail.
We parked along Bay View and jumped on our bicycles heading southwest thru Depot Rd taking the trail south passing by the train station and riding about 3 more miles. The trail is flat, clean and beautiful views! Easy level, perfect for families that just want to have fun biking. I hope Beaufort extends it through more neighborhoods.
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.
Don't go out of your way. This trail is not for anyone trying to enjoy a true bike trail experience. The asphalt paved trail is extremely and unnecessarily twisty with tarred over root bumps everywhere. The US 17 traffic noise is overwhelming. Other reviews provide additional comments on these and additional shortcomings. However, if you find yourself nearby,do drop in and just pay the fee to enter Huntington Beach State Park. Enjoy this wonderful park. Park near Atalya. Ride your bikes on the paved roads within the park and enjoy the marsh and dunes. Head out on the road from Atalya towards Brookgreen Gardens (a must). When it ends, just take the park service road north towards the main gate, exit the park, and then go as far north & or south on the Waccamaw Neck trail as you find enjoyable. the trail ends about a mile or so to the north, Going south, we turned around after 3 or so miles when the urban interface began. Return to the park and enjoy it some more if you have the time.
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.
10/9/21 Trail was closed near mile 5. Could see a truck and bulldozer. First time riding this trail and had no prewarning that it was closed. Will try it again one day.
Beautiful trees and view of the river. Not to hard.
