Great trail, well taken care of wide path, well marked, $2 entry fee per person. lightly traffic considering I was there on a Saturday. 3/4 of the trail is shaded.

Best part is the section near Main Rd end, beautiful low country marsh

Very well maintained back with great landscaping. Exercise trail and cement pond for geese. Good if you're just looking for a stroll.

Have always loved this place since I was little! A little escape to always free my mind and beautiful scenery, historic sites & the wildlife is amazing!! Riding bikes down the trails or walking/running with my dog is always the best! Never crowded!

easy bike riding.

Pretty tame and parts are just past equipment.

Go with a friend. The scenery is quite enough. I did see a Great Blue Heron and Giant Egret.

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.

Great trail to take small children. most is paved but still has plenty of dirt path.

Excellent. 80% paved. New bridges.

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!

awesomeness

Paved trails through the first European settlement in Charleston. We started at the visitor center, and went thru the history museum. We then purchased the audio guide, and followed the trail to all the historic sites- the old settlement, the Indian ceremonial grounds, the replica sailing ship, and through the grounds of the Legare-Waring plantation home with its majestic oak alley. We also walked the entire animal forest, and went on one of the nature trails running along the marsh. Beautiful day, not too crowded since we went early. We walked 4 miles total- it was great! Definitely will go back. There is an admission charge, but it is well worth the price.

This is a beautiful park with a lot of history--Indians, early settlers, slavery, etc. The springtime blossoms were awesome and the native animal presentation was wonderful. The only drawback is it was very crowded on a early spring Saturday.

This is a great place for a short, relaxing walk. All the paths are paved and flat, which makes it pretty easy. It's very pretty, as it goes around a pond, by the marsh, and has plenty of trees to look at- however, you can see the park roads for most of it. If you're looking to be deep in nature, this probably isn't the trail for you, but it is pleasant and very safe.

Awesome walking all around the park, great natural areas, beautiful grand oaks, exciting animal forest. This is the Charleston settlement in 1670.

This is a great park if you're going for a run and don't mind being surrounded by a few people. I usually like being alone when out on my walks but honestly this was a beautiful park. My dogs loved it and I thought it was well maintained. I probably won't go back to take a walk unless I'm meeting up with a friend or having a get together. Lovely park.

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.
