Great flat trail with birding and fishing spots near the furthest south end of the Greenway. Johns Island side. Great dog walk trail with good marsh views.

Better than expected! Started on John's Island and rode to Folly Rd. Had a frozen yogurt treat at shopping center as incentive to do return trip. Gorgeous weather made it a perfect day!

Great walk at either end of this trail, flat, easy but it is out and back. If you want nature begin on the Johns Island end, it is hard to find the start of this end of trail. On the Johns Island end you must exit Main Road at the railway bridge, go under bridge toward Charleston and look for large metal building, no official parking but a space is easy to find. Recently walked the full 7 miles out and back-14 miles total, long walk but nice and peaceful. Nice views of wildlife and small creeks at this end. Very few people, a few fishermen along this section. I love this end the best and great place to let your dog run.

The full length of this trail is 8.25 miles one-way, not 10.5 miles. Nice, easy walk on good packed path (the half closest in is paved). The half closest to Main Road is lovely, crossing through marsh and some agricultural areas. Walking the full length gives you a variety of surroundings. It's nice to have this nearby.

This was a good relatively flat trail with nice views of the low country. It's a good easy ride through some residential areas with road crossings. Worth the trip!

Did the trail in September 2013. Like the other comments made,
It was not where the app said it was. I had to travel
a couple of miles further south and ask several locals
before I found it. The Location in the app needs updated.
The trail was also undergoing paving so I could
Only ride to mile 6.
It will be nice when it is done.

Agree with first review - trail runs parallel to hwy 17 starting in West Ashley behind the Earthfare and squeezes you near John's Island. This is not near nor in Mt Pleasant.

Good for trail/Mtn biking, not road bikes. Also good for walkers.

Towards the John's island end are the best views of the intercostal waterways.

I give it a 4 - straight and easy trail though nothing really going on unless you're using as a scenic commute or towards the John's island side.

I walked about 10 miles of it in March 2012. First, its located in Charleston, SC, not Mt. Pleasant, SC. Second, its a wide walking/jogging trail, not a bike path, on an old railroad bed. I saw about 50 walkers/joggers and about 5 bicyclists. Some portions dirt, some paved, some areas very muddy in rainy weather. Ajoins many private yards. Most is perfectly flat, plenty of room for passing.
