Love the Greenway! It’s close to home and is pretty varied in its terrain. Lots of people in the “neighborhood” section clogging it up a bit sometimes, but not too bad. The middle forestry section cools you down and the flowery smells are quite calming. At the John’s Island end, you’re treated to some amazing tidal creeks, swamps, and abundant wildlife. Overall, super enjoyable and pleasant!

It’s a great trail. Lots of parking available.If you decide to walk or jog some of the gravel is very large where it’s not paved. Although there is paved areas. It was a little busy for my taste but the path is wide enough should still be able to follow social distancing. There’s lots of little walk off parts you and it and watch the water areas if you like.

Great getaway in the middle of town; subdivisions and road crossovers but also trees, dikes, water views, lots of birds; some off-road, some paved; safe, peaceful and quiet. Good way to get miles without traffic. Love this trail.

Great trail! Paved and unpaved portions, approx 8 miles from end to end. Marsh views, backyard views, and wooded views. Some parts of the trail are in direct sunlight for a bit. Recommend bug spray and sunscreen!

Great trail! Lightly trafficked but public enough to feel safe, dogs allowed, and nice views.

Paved in most sections, partially compact gravel, partially dirt. Would be better with a mountain bike but my hybrid did fine. Super exposed to the sun and some areas have lackluster scenery.

Nice for walking your dog a riding your bike if you live in the area. Nothing to travel to for sure. Far too Urban and basically just views of people's backyards

I love this greenway. My favorite place to ride a bike, longboard, or walk. It has such a nice vibe and some cool landmarks along it. Also has Geocaching power-trail along. I love looking out over the marsh on it, the old red car, the shoe art, sothel farm, and so many other cool things along it.

Excellent trail!

This is another rail-to-trail. A little long for a round trip hike, but not too bad by bike. Lots of variety: rice trunks, bridges, old oaks, shorebirds, etc. Nice view of the USDA /Clemson experimental ag fields. Pack bugspray.

I run this path weekly, it can be a little hot in the summer in the less shady sections but definitely a great place to get in some miles!

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.
