Colonel Robert Bell Path

Great Connecting Trail

April, 2024 by themfoxes

While this trail may not be very long, it provides a vital service for many cyclists and pedestrians by providing safe passage to the opposite side of the Intracoastal Waterway. The asphalt trail initially runs parallel to US 17 at 62th Ave N, then turns into a lightly wooded trail. After running along side the north end dog park, it travels across the waterway and then ends at the Horry County mountain bike track, The Hulk. Unfortunately, the trail just ends here but if you don’t mind riding on the road, you can take Eddie Dyer Rd to get to the abundant shopping area in River Oaks.

Sawmill Branch Multi-Use Trail

Major Construction - March 2024

March, 2024 by ajgranny46

We got on the trail at E. Richardson Avenue. To our surprise there is a major road being put in a couple miles into the ride. You can pass through the construction but it is definitely a boot unpleasant.

Doodle Rail Trail

Hilly, not crowded

March, 2024 by woodencanoe1

This was my third ride on the Doodle trail. It is hillier than the Greenville Swamp Rabbit trail, and much less crowded. Good bathrooms at each end, and a nice store at the Pickens end that serves sandwiches and craft beers in cans and bottles.


Lyman Rail Trail

A pleasant walk

March, 2024 by shcase1964

This Lyman rail trail is a pleasant walk by the remains of an old mill and through an old mill neighborhood. I was happy to see today that the trail had been extended. Thank you!

Lindsay Pettus Greenway

This was a good run. The trail is mostly flat. It's measured out and it's accurate. I really enjoyed this route and plan to revisit.

Peak to Prosperity Passage (Palmetto Trail)

clean, easy trail

January, 2024 by bransom49

Rucked it up and back yesterday, full trail. Super clean, easy trail. No incline. Minimal views, good for getting in your miles. Rocks were a pain in the a**. Definitely need some trail friendly shoes. Feet got beat up pretty good. Some campsites along small streams. 6/10. Good for getting time on feet. Won’t be back except for straight forward mileage. Bikes would be solid for stacking miles on a simple trail.

Peak to Prosperity Passage (Palmetto Trail)

not meant for running

December, 2023 by amaybach

Just want to let runners know this trail has a very irregular surface with rocks and grassy patches. I don’t recommend it for running.

Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail

This trail offers endless wonderful opportunities…

December, 2023 by trishabunnie

One of Greenville’s best points of interest, I ride it often and every time I make new friends. Absolutely beautiful trail and it has so much to offer!! Hopefully the rail bed from Campobello SC through historical Landrum SC and TRYON NC to Saluda NC will come to fruition soon. That would be amazing!! ¿¿

Peak to Prosperity Passage (Palmetto Trail)

Perfect Gravel Bike Trail Training Ride

December, 2023 by rwest3

I regularly ride the Trail for training. Once you clear the walkers at the trailheads you can complete efforts with no stops. Several sections have big, loose rock so you’ll want to let some air out.

West Ashley Greenway

Awesome Ride

October, 2023 by rbruington63

Awesome ride for all skill levels.

River Birch Trail

Best paved trail

October, 2023 by renustuff

Nice shaded trail, good for dogs, bikers, spotting birds and deer, and walking along the creek.
