Waccamaw Neck Bikeway

Rode the north end of the trail today.

October, 2018 by dkmelchior_tl

We rode the north end of the trail this morning and were impressed. There is no public parking on the north end but we parked in a local business several blocks away with out issue. The trail is a very twisty paved trail through the dense woods. Who ever created this trail did their best to avoid cutting as many large trees as possible. It was a very pleasant ride. As you progress, the trail is diverted into a quiet neighborhood with very little traffic. A very nice experience. Be aware that there are several driveways, and business parking lots that need to be traversed which could be an issue if you are traveling with small children.

West Ashley Greenway

Very Very Nice Ride.

September, 2018 by dmckee622

A very nice trail. Pavement conditions were great with some places looking like it was newly paved. There was a few sections that were not paved, but they did not cause any problems (of course you wouldn't want to try them on a road bike). If you are ever in the area of Charleston, this is a must do trail. It doesn't disappoint!

West Ashley Bikeway

Decent Trail

September, 2018 by dmckee622

We rode this trail at the same time as we rode the West Ashley Greenway. I rated it 4 stars because about the western half would rate about 3 stars because of very rough unsafe pavement. The eastern half was very nice and would rate 5 stars easy. Even with the bad conditions on the western end, it was a nice ride. Just had to be very careful of the bad pavement conditions.

Sawmill Branch Multi-Use Trail

Nice Afternoon Ride!!

September, 2018 by dmckee622

Very nice trail. Smooth surface and fairly flat trail. Need more signage. We didn't see many signs and it was a little confusing at times. Not much shade so it was a hot ride (in the 90's). Might be better to plan to ride it in the morning or late in the afternoon or just during cooler weather.

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

Great Trail !!

September, 2018 by dmckee622

We rode the trail from Taft Road south to The end next to the bowling alley on Cleveland. Very nice trail. Lots of great little shops and cafes in Travelers Rest. Hard to get the wife away from the stores and shops. I would rate it five stars except for lots of "root humps" between Travelers Rest and Greenville. They would be rough for road bikes. Also, needs more signage as you come into Greenville. The trail can be confusing unless you look at Google Maps.

Doodle Rail Trail

Great Trail !!

September, 2018 by dmckee622

We just finished the trail and it was great. This is one trail you should do if you are in the area. Very well maintained. Would be a great trail for road bikes (we rode recumbent trikes). A good many road crossings, but nearly all were vacant of any vehicles. Too bad it's only 7.3 miles. We did the southern part from the park on Fleetwood Drive and added another 2 miles (there and back). The Park on Fleetwood Drive Is a great place to park.

Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail

“Best Day Ever” - my 9yr old grandson

September, 2018 by renaytodd

In an attempt to depart from electronics, with much protest, I rented bikes for myself and 9 year old grandson. It was a new adventure to us both. We began our journey downtown and made it to the Swamp Rabbit Cafe to stop for a rest and enjoyed popsicles sold there. We then headed towards Traveler’s Rest. It was perfect weather that morning for a ride and I suggest doing that as opposed to an afternoon ride during summer months. The child who was “forced” to do this, ended our trip with his approval who exclaimed it was the “Best Day Ever”.

Heritage Trail (SC)

Access to Trail

August, 2018 by nebaker

I wish there were more access points to this trail. There is one at the end of Bond Avenue in Mathews Mill Village and one behind Greenwood OB/GYN near West Alexander Avenue. If anyone knows of other places to access the trail, besides the beginning at the train museum and the end at Florida Avenue, I would like to know of them.

Piedmont Medical Center Trail

Best joy ride in Charlotte

August, 2018 by reisfenceinc

Mostly flat by the catawba river best joy ride in Charlotte Metro area. After your ride enjoy a adult beverage at the Pump House , Brass Tap or Grapevine at the end. If you go all the way to river park it's about 4 miles not 2.5.

Spanish Moss Trail

Great trail

August, 2018 by roconnor1034

This is any easy trail for families. Very flat and smooth. Rode from Beaufort to Port Royal. Sad part is the trail ends before you get to the historic main part of town. The “trail” continues with small signs marking the way through a residential area. You must cross HWY 21 (Ribaut Rd)

Piedmont Medical Center Trail

Well Maintained

August, 2018 by kinjamyhaz

We started at the area close to The Pump House. I believe the trail is longer than 2.5 miles. Scenery is nice. Somewhat shaded.

New River Linear Trail

Walk along the old Seaboard Coastline Railroad

July, 2018 by clemsonbrian

Can be very muddy after a lot of rain. A quiet walk through what was once rice fields in the New River marsh. Trail ends at the New River where the old railroad bridge had burned down. Wish the trail went all the way to the rivers edge.
