Grissom Parkway Trail

Nice ride. Wide path. Lots of bikes out.

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

Bike Riding

November, 2017 by tommybyars48

I love the Swamp Rabbit Trail and give it a 5 star but it does need to be repaved because it makes for a very bumpy ride.

Three Rivers Greenway

no thru access

November, 2017 by noblemuse

trail in need of repair as there are a few places that are barricaded off and so impossible to ride the trail. Please post this on site for future trail riders who will not be frustrated and disappointed with their attempt to ride the full 8plus miles. Thanks

West Ashley Bikeway

Great These Days

October, 2017 by ggff_tl

This trail used to be in rough shape but it has been newly paved as of this year and work is still being done in terms of landscaping etc. I am on the trail on a daily basis and have never had any safety issues. Its a great gem in west ashley

Doodle Rail Trail

Great afternoon Ride

September, 2017 by brentadcox

This trail is up and down almost the whole way. There a short breaks both ways but you will need some gears to deal with the long hills. Such a pretty ride and it was not crowded at all. This is a beautiful bike ride. Can't wait till the leaves turn.

Doodle Rail Trail

Nice wide pavement, but several minor hills

September, 2017 by lexingtonflyer

This is a lovely, wide rail trail. It's new enough that there aren't any rough spots in the pavement. There are few road crossings of much significance. There are more hills than typical, but fewer than you'd find on nearby roads. Frequent distance markings add to safety and help pace the rider. A mid-point rest stop was added by local Rotarians. The ride is a more rural experience than the nearby Swamp Rabbit Trail, with less traffic, and more trees. I've ridden trails from Maine to Georgia and this is a good one.

West Ashley Greenway

Afternoon 4 miles

September, 2017 by philsucksgolf

A quick warm-up to the trail head by the ball field from the Residence Inn. 2 miles out and back. Few road crossings and intersections are inside a residential area. Very little traffic. Great scenery, flat and smooth surface. A nice surprise as I was going to try a hit downtown Charleston for a run. Glad the hotel manager made the recommendation. Enjoy this trail!!

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

Multi-faceted trail

September, 2017 by haga1106

We rode this trail from Cleveland Park to Travelers Rest and back. This is a great trail with many great places to stop, eat and have a cold beverage. https://www.facebook.com/BikesBeerandGrub/

Awendaw Passage (Palmetto Trail)

Fun Trail

September, 2017 by williamrwiggins

I am a relative newbie to trail riding. My new Giant ATX did a great job pulling me over the bumps and even through the deep standing water. Next time, we will go during low tide and not after a big rain. Bring bug spray!!! All-in-All we have fun!

Waccamaw Neck Bikeway

not thrilled with waverly road section

July, 2017 by specklesgh

We have rode along Huntington Park trails often and enjoy them. We decided to take the Martin Luther King road trail which was a great ride. But When we rode down Waverly Road, we were very disappointed. The sidewalks were almost all broken and the traffic was too heavy to ride in the street. When we reached 17, we could not decide which was worse, riding all the way back the way we came or riding down 17 back to Litchfield in the heat. Either way was bad!!! We believe the bike trails should have "bike " trails or not be designated as a bike trail.
