Wadsworth Trail Description

The Wadsworth Trail parallels Willis Road from Harmon Drive to Hawk Creek Drive, with a spur heading south along SR 42-4382/Caldwell Drive. The Willis Road portion is 1.85 miles (one way), while the Caldwell Drive portion to just north of Dartmoor Drive is just under 1 mile (one way). The paved Wadsworth Trail is a mix of flat sections and long, rolling hills.

From downtown Spartanburg, take US 29 south for about 4 miles (passing under I-26 at 3.5 miles). Turn left at S Blackstock Road; turn right (at the first light) onto Willis Road. The trail begins about 0.5 mile ahead on the left.

Wadsworth Trail Reviews

Nice place to walk

As others have mentioned, this is not a typical woodland trail. However, it is a very nice walking path with good shade and pleasant scenery. I appreciate the variety of this path and enjoy it more than straight trails such as Mary Black.


I parked at the Willis Rd YMCA. This paved path is a good mix of uphill, downhill, and flat. Plenty of shade. Adding mileage is easy if you cruise through the lovely neighborhoods along Willis Rd.

Paved path next to the road

As others have said, it isn't much of a "trail" but rather a paved path that runs along a pretty busy two lane road. You can walk two abreast but that is about all. There are multiple subdivisions along the path which contributes to the busyness of the road especially during morning and evening rush hour times. That being said, it is a nice place to get in a few good walking/running miles with some hills along the way without having to drive a long distance out of town.

road run

Honestly I only ran One half of this trail. It was mostly along the road but it wasn’t busy and I enjoyed the views. I ran into the other neighborhoods and got a good 5 miles in. The paved roads were smooth and I felt safe. Next time I will Park at Grace Church and run that side into the wooded area.


is not a trail but now a sidewalk

This might have been a trail 10 to 15 years ago, but with all the new home building in the last few years. It is now a sidewalk next to a busy street.

Not a proper trail

The "Trail" may have been through some woods at one time, but it actually goes past some homes, on several busy roads. I wouldn't call this a trail at all, but just a sidewalk on a road, as there have been many new and lavish homes built along the "trail". And if there IS more to this trail than seems to be, there should be better signposts than there are, as we could find NONE other than the main map by the Fitness Center.
