Nice, easy hike. Once again enjoyed this park with my two year old on my back. He liked exploring around the old fire tower structure. I recorded this to be 4.4 miles when using "Map My Run", but I did start and end at the additional parking lot, and used the connector trail.

Easy, nothing special because you’re always in the woods and there’s no “view” to enjoy

I think moderate is accurate. I carried my two year old in a child carrier on my back, and we went counter clockwise. This put the more technical stuff first. The home stretch back to the parking lot was pretty much nice and easy. Like others have said, there isn’t a mind blowing look out or waterfall, but it was a nice shaded hike for me and the little fella to do. At the creek crossing, we saw a a few crawfish in the water which he thought was cool.

This is unquestionably a bike trail, no where near a hike. The majority of the paved path is adjacent or eye shot away from the main roads. This is definitely more enjoyable if biked and stopped along the way at the quaint areas, like Traveler’s Rest for food and drink. Overall this path is more about the distance and less about the scenery.

This trail or system of trails is so close to my house, that I really wanted to like it. But I would have to say for my first time there today, I was a little disappointed. The concept of the trails is great! It’s a very large area that prior to being turned into trails was just sitting there swampy, unused and unknown. Now it brings a lot of people out. And that’s great. There are a variety of trails: paved trails, boardwalks, and dirt trails. So far so good, but the signage to tell you where to go is confusing. And the Maps saying “you are here“ are strangely disorienting. Go and try it out yourself. I certainly will go back, even with these concerns.

we went all the way to the dam and old factory and the back. over 4 miles. But really appreciate the improved trails and boardwalk. Wonderful hike!!

Nice easy hike. No view just a circle but food for trail running and exercise

Both the pup and I really enjoyed this quick hike. Definitely steep enough to warrant the moderate rating. Only saw one rattlesnake. :/

Well maintained, easy stroll

Nice easy trail.

I did it counter-clockwise. The downhill part at the beginning (the foot-traffic only trail) was actually very challenging on the knees and toes, but my body was thanking me when I was able to do the gradual return hike up instead. It was a nice hike, no spectacular over looks or water views, but still relaxing. Only saw one biker on this Friday early afternoon.

Moderate for sure, although steep and lots of roots to trip you up along sections. Great place to use hiking poles. For about 60% of the trail, you share it with mountain bikers. Takes about an hour or so.

Had a blast on the trail today with my wife, very easy ridding. Many spots are in the open sun so wear sunscreen like we didn’t XD

Nice easy loop around the lower lake.

Wonderful way to explore Nature in Greenville.

Ok for a nature walk but not much of a hike or anything interesting to see. Lots of mountain bikers on a Sunday afternoon sharing the trail, so you have to be on the lookout to give them space. Probably better to go on up to the higher trails like Sulpher Springs or Brissey Ridge, if you want to hike here (although I haven't been here in many years and can't remember specifics.) Convenient to Greenville but Table Rock is so much prettier! $5/person park fee at gate unless you buy yearly pass.

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.

Nice trail for families and pets. Well kept and clean.

Very nice park! Would be more comfortable if maps were clearer or an app was interactive. It was difficult to know where I was and how much further to complete the loop. Great place to bike or run with plenty of shade!

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.

This is a great easy hike! Fun for dogs and little ones!

Great trail. Went early and it wasn’t crowded! Took my dog and we had a great walk!

I loved hiking this trail at Paris Mountain. Very easy trail to hike. Most of the trail is shaded with benches spaced throughout to sit on. My group had lunch over one of the bridges on the trail. Beautiful & easy trail!

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.

You can choose your own path. Many side trails. Lots of wildlife. Usually see a hawk
