This trail is a solid 13 miles. At times, the markers can be difficult to follow. At one point, it throws you on a sidewalk and doesn't really direct you back onto the trail. I got lucky and found it. The trail is relatively flat and provides some nice scenery of the marsh and river. Not a lot of drops or jumps. I'll definitely recommend this trail and I'll be back for more!

It’s been quite a while, but I used to run on the trail. It’s beautiful, but be careful of roots. In the summer also watch out for poison ivy.

HikingClosed

The trail was closed due to flooding. That's why I only gave it 2 stars. We called the number on the trail head board and learned that the trail is mostly for bikers like bmx types. So I'm not sure about it for hiking. This was the number we called and learned about the condition so it might be helpful to call ahead (843-794-7951). Heading over to Cypress Garden Loop.

We did practically none of the trail just a quick 1 mile out and back but it’s in good condition despite the massive rains

HikingGreat!

Excellent workout. The gate was unlocked and unmanned so showing our Military ID cards was not required. Plenty of parking and the trail was wide and clearly marked. We were looking for about half that distance so cut up one of the numerous marked roads to make it about 6 but came upon the 7 mile marker, then took several more shortcuts to eventually get 8.8 miles in a little over 3 hours. Even with all the recent rain the trail drains well and we found little mud. It’s a great trail long enough to really get exercised. Encountered a half dozen bikers who shared the trail.

Well maintained trails with very minimal bike traffic. Amazon Trail was closed due to standing water. Recommend good quality bug spray.

This trail is great for those getting back on their bikes again or riding for the first time. The technical riding is good for building skills and confidence. This is also good for bikers wanting to stretch out their bikes and get into pedal shape. There isn't a lot of down hill so you are pedaling. I love this because it helps build up my cardio for when I ride in the Upstate, NC or WV. But, anytime I'm out on my bike in the woods, I am satisfied.

Really cruisable, fun trail. Lots of water crossings, so our pup was happy. We like that there are add on loop options so you can shorten or lengthen your ride.

Great Trail, my phone died before I could finish but finished the trail in under 2 hours and 15 mins. The trail was well maintained and dry for most part. The parts that were muddy and wet usually had some type of structure to help cross the area. The trail had plenty of shading and was a fun trail to run.

Beautiful, well kept trail with a number of scenery changes. Lots of beautiful swamp land- some of which you might see gators on. Although its a long trail we were able to find an area to cut the trail in half and get back to the car. Required a little bit of walking on a road but the number of cars were very slim. Probably my favorite trail within 25 minutes of downtown Charleston.

Great long trail - well kept. Requires a pass to ride and it takes several weeks to get the pass.

Very cool trail. Grass is really tall in lots of parts, and either we got lost, but the red trail blazes disappear. The dogs were off leash and loved it. We ended up cutting short and going to the road back to the trail head. Right around 3ish miles.
