I love cycling from Kroc Center to TR you can stop at Furman along way and eat lunch in downtown TR.
Great for all levels of cyclists however if novice be sure to pay attention and stay to right. Many experienced cyclists use trail and on weekends very busy.

Only walked the bit in TR so far. We will take the whole thing once we get bicycles.

First time today riding on the Swamp Rabbit Trail. Started at the trailhead in Traveler's Rest. Something of note is that you cannot park at this trailhead but rather at the Ingles about 1/2 mile away. This will require riding a small segment of White Horse Road as you pull out of the Ingles parking lot to get to Tate where the trail starts, or ends depending on your start point. We rode to the lake at Furman and back. Easy ride, albeit a little crowded at points, through varying scenery including woods, creeks, a lake, and cosy downtown Traveler's Rest - where you can rest on a park bench or at a locally owned restaurant.

Great trail for getting some cardio in! Certainly not a hiking trail by any means but it’s fun to explore. Great for walking, running or riding bikes. Can get really crowded in most stretches but it’s still a great way to get outside.

Nice variety of scenes along this trail. At the Southern tip, the wetland environment is great for birding. On the Northern side, the town of Traveler's Rest is quaint shops and restaurants. The trail is mostly flat and ideal for bike riding. Part of the trail is shared with automobile traffic, but the majority is not.

My family and I bike the Swamp Rabbit Trail frequently and love it. We have started from Downtown Greenville and rode but usually park at Sunrift Adventures in Travelers Rest and ride down to Furman and through the campus before heading back. Great place to ride and kid friendly!

The SRT is beautiful and is highly trafficked. I don't consider this a hiking trail by any means but it's an excellent biking trail for a decent cardio workout. Great for a nice walk.

We have rode this trail twice. I like parking in Greenville and riding to Travelers Rest the best!!!! We will do this again.

Excellent trail. Sad to see so much trash and people on bikes getting on the rubberized walking path causing unnecessary damages, but you know... People.

My husband and I recently purchased bikes to add a new twist to our workout schedule for some variety. We've ridden the trail once at this point. We began in TR and went about 6 miles toward Greenville. The ride is mostly downhill from TR which makes returning mostly uphill. I would suggest to new riders like us to begin in Greenville so you are fresh for the uphill challenge. Over all, this is a great, fun and challenging ride especially for beginners.

Didn't get to walk the whole trail but it was a decent little trail and the falls park bridge and water fall was cool.

We bike this trail often. It's not the most scenic trail, but it's coming along and Greenville in constantly working towards beautification projects, etc. (I wouldn't be on it after dark, not a safe place to be.)

Who would have thought, that on July the 5th, someone could have had such a perfect bike ride on the swamp rabbit trial. Weather was gorgeous. Low humidity was unbelievable today. Rode trial out to Travelers Rest and back. Even made the ride through Cleveland Park and back as well. Great Ride. Beautiful day.

I biked the trail from where it starts at Traveler's Rest to Furman University to some sort of chemical plant and then back. It was about 10 miles and I wished I had turned around at Furman. Going back is uphill and I was on a mountain bike. I also didn't bring gloves so I got blisters on my hands. I had to get off the bike and walk part of the way. I looped around the lake at Furman. There are some nice views of the tower, the birds, and the mountain. There is also a restroom. The trail starts at a picturesque graveyard then goes through the attractive downtown of Traveler's Rest. I stopped by the American Restaurant there and had a nice meal. They have a place to lock up your bike. There is a water fountain between TR and Furman where the train is parked. The trail is wooded near Furman and beyond. Scenery was okay for a road bike trail, which is usually a little boring. I took my time with lots of detours and breaks; I suppose I was on the trail for 5 hours.

Great urban trail. All non motorized forms of travel are acceptable. Very fast cyclists will want to use only as a connector due to heavy slower traffic.

*Best Way* start at Linky Stone Park Downtown and head north. Ends 11 miles north in the town of Travelers Rest.

The part that runs through Greenville is very nice, but VERY confusing. When I thought I was on the trail, I'd see signs saying "to swap rabbit trail". Then when I tried to retrace my steps to my car, I ended up having to use my phone gps and walk on main roads to get back to the Reedy River Bridge and my car.
