Glendale Shoals Trail Description

Located in the quiet, rural outskirts of Spartanburg, SC, the Glendale Shoals Trail provides a lovely path for visitors to explore some of the natural beauty of the area. The natural-surface trail runs through the Glendale Shoals Preserve along Lawson's Fork Creek - the site of a former mill, the dam that once serviced the mill now provides a picturesque small waterfall above the shoals, right in front of the recently renovated Glendale Bridge. Built in 1928, the bridge now better complements the beauty of its surroundings thanks to efforts to restore and improve the bridge for pedestrians. The trail provides plentiful opportunities to catch glimpses of local animal life, and is a popular place for dipping your toes in the waters of the creek. Bicycles are allowed on the trail, but the dirt surface may be prohibitive - especially when muddy. Area officials hope to one day connect the trail with others in the city of Spartanburg, but for now, the Glendale Shoals Trail provides a great standalone experience, perfect for getting in some fun and recreation.

Parking and Trail Access

Limited parking is available at the trailhead, on Glendale Avenue adjacent to the Glendale Bridge. To reach the trail from Spartanburg, follow State Route 9/U.S. Highway 176 southeast out of the city, then take State Road 42-47 east. Continue for several miles, then turn left onto Clifton Glendale Road, and right onto Glendale Avenue.
