Three Rivers Greenway

Nice but, 8.5?

November, 2019 by timmy0728

First, this is a nice paved path.
For the majority of the trail, there is a sand path on the side.
It mostly level with only a couple small hills.
Nice scenary while in between the river and the canal, especially the spillway and the locks at the top end.
Enjoyed seeing a Great Blue Heron and a couple Cormorants, but no alligators. Just seeing one on the other side of the canal would be cool.
Second, the trail is marked every 1/4 mile, but only 2.5 miles long?
Not sure where the 8+ miles are as on the website. Made 2 passes to make up for the shortness.


So if in the area, as always, and looking to get a couple miles in, give this trail a try. You should enjoy it.



Spanish Moss Trail

Beautiful well maintained trail

October, 2019 by anna.roberts

This is a really wonderful trail to ride with your family. Pretty stops with a few nice drinking fountains. Historical markers throughout. Beautiful water views. We pull a baby trailer and it’s a smooth ride for our baby and free of debris spraying on them. I’m looking forward to the expansion!

Palmetto Trail (Peak to Prosperity Passage)

A glorious walk with a four-legged critters

Great place to walk the dogs and enjoy a good day out in the woods...

Sumter Cypress Trail

Nice ride

October, 2019 by csumter7

Rode my bike along the Cypress trial. It is well maintained. I only rode from Dillion park to Cypress park. I find the ride quite enjoyable. I ride with my husband and our dogs ride in their doggy trailer. We get to take a pit stop at the Bark park for our fur babies. Only issue is the beginning of the trial is not marked by the green official trial sign. The trial sign is on the opposite side that ends at Wise Dr

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

Very Nicely Paved Trail to Travelers Rest

September, 2019 by stvatandem

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.

North Augusta Greeneway Park

Great trail in urban setting

September, 2019 by chadmain

Amazing trail with numerous access points!!! Parked at Bergen Road & went north approx. 1/2 mile to Rippling Creek Lane. There is no parking at Rippling Creek Lane. Walked the entire length to River Club Golf Course - approx. 7 miles (with return trip - 14 miles). The trail was all asphalt with tunnels and bridges for busy roads/railroad tracks. There was a lot of people on the trail biking, jogging, walking, and skating but it was wide enough to accommodate everyone!!! The trail has a gradual slope but was not rolling hills so is easy for all to navigate. There were all ages of people on the trail. There were a lot of trees along the trail so it was relatively shaded. There is a restroom about 0.3 miles south where the north trail and south trails meet (mile marker 0.0N/0.0S). There are no signs anywhere on the trail telling about this restroom except at the park where the restroom is located. I will definitely do this trail again!!! With all the trees of different varieties, I suspect the fall colors will be great!!!

Vista Greenway

Good ride

September, 2019 by dsilcott

Good ride, had alot of fun. Went there yesterday before the river walk.

Three Rivers Greenway

Good ride

September, 2019 by dsilcott

Very good ride. Went from the gervais st bridge to the lylees st entrance. I plan to ride the whole thing but I was on a time crunch. Great for roadbikes but Its also fun for mountain bikes. Has a few features you can take offroad, over some roots & dirt, sand, rock. You can skip some of the windy turns if you want or you can take them, up to you. A fair amount of people can be on the trail though so be careful. Great views overall and its a beautiful ride.

Wadsworth Trail

Paved path next to the road

September, 2019 by ecohan2

As others have said, it isn't much of a "trail" but rather a paved path that runs along a pretty busy two lane road. You can walk two abreast but that is about all. There are multiple subdivisions along the path which contributes to the busyness of the road especially during morning and evening rush hour times. That being said, it is a nice place to get in a few good walking/running miles with some hills along the way without having to drive a long distance out of town.

North Augusta Greeneway Park

not bad

August, 2019 by sdspencerdaily

Great for walking and running. Needs some repairs for the bikers. To make it even better you can tie palmetto trail. If you live in north augusta you can make it it a 28 mile trail and it is amazing.

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

For a few miles

August, 2019 by timmy0728

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.


North Augusta Greeneway Park

A good trail!

July, 2019 by jeanette0815

I reside in Augusta and go to this trail when I want a challenge! It up hill going to the turn around point! Fats ride back to entrance! Only issue is depending on the time of day! A lot of walkers so have to get around when large group and cut into your pace! The crossing across the street can be a bit confusing but still a great ride!
