They paved trail approximately 4 miles. It is well used and sometimes you need to watch out for bicycles. The views of the river are great and ever-changing. We had a nice sunny day and explored all the various monuments located in the park.

Not much of a trail. This is nothing more then a sidewalk sandwiched between a high traffic roadway and a filthy polluted river. Never again.

Great Trail. My friend and I walked a loop around Cooper River. We walked from South Park Drive to South Crescent Boulevard then over the bridge to North Park Drive. It was busy with walkers, joggers, and bikers. The weather was relatively nice. Sunny with temperatures in the mid 40’s. We hiked to East Cuthbert Blvd.. We went over the bridge and back to the car. The highlight was the woman with 2 dogs. One dog had a bad leg so she had a small wagon for the dog. So one dog was walking the other dog was bundled up in the cool weather and being towed by the woman. Very cute. Great hike. Comeback park.

Basically, an asphalt sidewalk. Very nice and easy for beginners and/or someone just wanting to take a nice walk. There are some historical landmarks and statues, with information, which is awesome if you're into that. Would definitely do it again, especially on a nice weather day...

Great path for running, biking, or walking. Rather flat, which is great for anyone using it.

Nice for an easy walk, I agree with other comments that it’s more of a sidewalk along the road than a trail by the river. Lots of green space for a picnic without being on top of other people. Definitely not the right choice if you’re looking for a hike or true nature walk. Can get busy without a lot of space for bikers to easily pass. Great views and decent parking.

excellent paved trail. i feel safe running it by myself. the only problem can be all the geese and droppings. its an easy trail with a great restaurant on it.

This trail was was a flat, cement running or biking trail along the Cooper River. Unfortunately, you are closer to the busy road at certain points than the river. However, it is a very great place for recreation for the surrounding area.

For a walking trail this is perfect- it's paved and pretty even terrain. I didn't enjoy biking it as the side walls were small and you have to walk yourself across the bridge, but there's an adorable beer garden and tend to be foods trucks - especially on weekends - if you want to grab a bite!

It's a great river view walk. Beautiful foliage especially in the autumn months. Very easy, family & pet friendly however I am grateful I get to go in the middle of the day during the week because weekends & after work hours during the week are very busy.

I was this trail often! There is some spots in the path that could use some repair, but it's a nice place to walk/run.
