In 2003 the South Carolina Governor's Council on Physical Fitness recognized the Florence Rail-Trail Committee with a community award for its work on this tree-lined trail, which spans 2 miles between the Ebenezer Park neighborhood and nearby McLeod Health & Fitness Center.
Area walkers, runners, inline skaters and cyclists flock here for their daily fitness routines, and visitors are welcome to join them. The paved corridor provides ample room for everyone.
Replica train gates mark the trailhead at the intersection of Old Ebenezer and South Ebenezer roads. The out-and-back route passes pines, sweet gums, honeysuckle and grape vines that are used by a myriad of bird species and other critters.
At trail's end is the fitness center, which boasts a wooded nature walk. Stroll its packed dirt trails and boardwalks that cross small streams before rejoining the rail-trail. On National Trails Day (the first weekend of June), the fitness center hosts annual walking and running events for kids, providing registered participants with T-shirts and medals.
Take I-95 to Exit 157 and head east US Highway 76. After about 1 mile, turn left on South Ebenezer Road, then right on Old Ebenezer Road, just shy of the trailhead. Parking is on the left.
