Florence Rail Trail (SC) Description

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 connects the Ebenezer Park neighborhood with the 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.

Parking and Trail Access

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.

Florence Rail Trail (SC) Reviews

nice ride but paved portion is less than 1.5 miles

This short asphalt trail is almost completely shaded. Patching has been done in a few areas but it could use some attention. It would be nice if someone would take bright orange paint and highlight the cracks and holes that we occasionally found on the trail. They are treacherous for in-line skaters.This could be a spectacular trail with a touch more maintenance and if the paved portion was longer.

Dogs favorite walk!

Needs cleaning up after storm hit us pretty bad, but it's still beautiful!

A short but scenic trail

The trailhead is not easy to find. The trail would benefit from improved signage leading you to the trailhead. Once you find it, it's a nice trail, protected by a thick tree canopy. The asphalt trail connects to some dirt trails, not sure how far they go. Great place to go for a run!

Nice Trail

Nice, clean and well maintained. Very enjoyable.


Nicely maintained trail

"Although not very long, this trail does provide a nice stroll through the trees. Past the end of the rail-trail is a series of unpaved trails thru the woods."
