Columbia's Three Rivers Greenway is comprised of a handful of disconnected segments of open trail, including sections through Riverfront Park and Granby Park, as well as the West Columbia Riverwalk, Cayce Riverwalk, and Saluda Riverwalk. This beautiful series of riverfront pathways, at the confluence of the Broad, Saluda and Congaree rivers, includes lighted trails and boardwalks, an outdoor amphitheater, restrooms, wayside exhibits, picnic areas, and scenic overlooks.
The paved paths wind through a forest of Southern hardwoods and are home to a variety of wildlife, including chimney swifts that nest under the numerous bridges. Another highlight is a view of the remains of the canal locks once used by riverboats.
You can also fish or toss an inner tube in the water on a hot day and float the river. In addition, the Three Rivers Greenway is close to shopping and restaurants in South Carolina's capital city.
