Doodle Rail Trail

Doodle Rail Trail

June, 2017 by insky132

While vacationing in nearby North Carolina, I looked up nearby railtrails and found the Doodle trail about an hour away. We were well please with great trail with great asphalt, a lot of split rail fences, benches, air pump station about midway along the trail, and a port-a-john @ the beginning. Once outside the city limits, the trail became rolling thru fields and forest. I believe the trail has been extended about a half a mile through the cemetery in Easley. Nice ride!

Blue Ridge Railroad Historical Trail

straight up and breath taking

June, 2017 by beccablankenship2009

A little daunting at the start but well worth the climb. Next time through to the end.

Baxter Village Trail

Catawba River

May, 2017 by jeff704

Difficult trail. Many tree roots and water erosion that has created deep channels. Took my kids and too difficult for the 10 year old, so 2 stars. Good for Mt Bikers looking for a technical challenge.

Wadsworth Trail

is not a trail but now a sidewalk

May, 2017 by dlcoldren

This might have been a trail 10 to 15 years ago, but with all the new home building in the last few years. It is now a sidewalk next to a busy street.

North Augusta Greeneway Park

Walking the Greeneway

May, 2017 by mparrishm1

I begun walking the Greeneway December of 2012 because that was when I got Sadie my dog, buddy and friend. We have walked several parts of the trail, and I find it all beautiful! My favorites are the places where the trees reach toward each other overhead, The only negative issues for me are bikers that pass with no warning and a shortage of restrooms, so I choose sections of the trail where a restroom is near, and I walk facing the bikers to avoid surprises. I really appreciate the Greeneway Trail, and I am glad I live in North Augusta, SC!

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

tons of fun

April, 2017 by ddicer

The detour was inconvenient, but that should be fixed soon. The tons of people were fine. Only about half of this is Railtrail.

swamp rabbits trail

April, 2017 by riicr48

Two years early my oldest son ( software writer n programmer) after a Greenville visit said Dad you need to visit the cleanest and one of the most beautifull cities downtown I've seen. Now in one ear out the other i let it pass, well a month ago i asked my GF when will our daughter be off, of course with Easter holidays coming up i was given the dates. Pondering what and where to go i checked on links trail and found out Greenville has a bike trail called Greenville Swamp Rabbit bike trail which is a little less of 20 miles.well being a crazy cyclist who puts in 120 a week i booked 5 days in Greenville. Afte a full day of trying to figure out Swamp Rabbit trail (where to start etc etc., I had it down! i get up first second day at 7am figuring who would be out and i take off on yhe trail ( great trail point ) back to who wpuld be out, well jogger on top of jogger...Folks i've cycle the N.C.R trail in gun powder park Md. most yhe way up to Pa. , this Swamp Rabbit Trail is the beat incline decline i loved it, up to Travelers Rest the back to Greenvillebe careful be respect and dont be stupid thinking you can get around someone in time, its a busy trail..No forgive the misspells etc 4 beers later...its that good

Spanish Moss Trail

My favorite place to ride

March, 2017 by samistrange

First, the trail is actually 9.25 miles long, 18.5 round trip.
Waterways and wooded marshland for the most part, sometimes you can see dolphins. I ride here weekly and always enjoy it.

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

Swamp Rabbit Trail

March, 2017 by jimtalone

My son and I got on the trail at the YMCA and headed to downtown Greenville. We never got there. We got lost and wound up on streets four different times, a thing that never happened to me before. The tail is nice and the valley is pretty but the signage was confusing or non existent in many cases. It was also very hilly. This might be a great trail if you know where you are going but it was very difficult for us.

Awendaw Passage (Palmetto Trail)

Best RUNNING trail in area!

March, 2017 by rwmcnutt

I have run most of the Swamp Fox and love it, but would probably make this #1 in the CHARLESTON area. It is unbelievably beautiful along the marshes and intracoastal. And it even has a section of great switchbacks and elevation gains. And depending on where you start, one of the best things about it is a great turnaround at Buck Hall with picnic tables, water and rest rooms.

The tide was mostly out this day and it hadn't rained in 4-5 days. I could see the possibility of wet areas if it has been raining a lot or really high tides. But, there are usually boards or reinforced walkways in areas where it might be wet. You should be fine near low tide (but obviously more beautiful with tides in!).

Minimal roots. Could see where bikers might have to walk some areas for one reason or another, but few. No problem for runners or hikers.

Highly recommend! This trail is what the LOWCOUNTRY is all about!!!

Spanish Moss Trail

Beautiful trail

March, 2017 by clgarret

We live in charleston and decided to day trip to Beaufort for this trail. It's a beautiful trail. It's wide all cement for at least 8+ miles, one way, and well maintained. Lots of people cycling, walking, kids, rollers skating on the trail. It has an option to get off and detour to Bay Street ( main tourist road in Beaufort). We parked at the parking lot off roseida road. I thought that was the beginning of the trail but it appears a new addition has been added going north( away from downtown). I would def recommend to anyone looking to cycle the city and get some exercise doing so. Have fun!

Sumter Cypress Trail

First hike!

March, 2017 by gabehut

The Sumter Cypress Trail is a neat, simple trail. There was one pet where I had to remove my shoes to wade through some water, but the rest of the trail was fine. Be sure to pay close attention for trail signs. It is easy to get off the path due to many "paeudo" trails .
