If you are use to cycling on swamp rabbit be prepared that this is a much more challenging trail. I enjoyed but if was a work out!

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.

Absolutely beautiful even if it was a HOT, HOT day!

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.

fine 15 mile nature ride. wild life. flat grade. good canopy. super quiet and not very trafficked. def will be back when i need a couple hours of quiet riding.

I just did part 1 and into part 2 so I hiked 22 miles it was easy and fun actually. Water was a bit dodgy just stagnate ponds but I didn’t go past the 11 mile mark then I camped and walked back out the next day.

Evenly paved, wide trail. Signs clearly marking trail and crosswalks are marked. Trail seems to be safe. There was a good bit of trash along the way.

Great trail!!

I’d like to give this trail a 3.5. It was a great trail and a fun adventure but it was REALLY muddy. But we still had a great time! Our dogs did too!

Nice, easy walking trail. Fully paved. From the Easley side, the first couple miles don't have the best views.

love it!

Nice hike with relatively flat grade. Great bridge across Broad River at Peak. Standing in the middle of this bridge over the Broad River is quite possibly worth the trip alone.

The aggregate rock of a railroad bed is ever present. Wear good hiking boots if you venture up the trail towards Pomaria.

We got lost. There are barely any signs for the path, and there are lots of different paths to take. We ended up not on this path until the very end of the trail. Also very sandy.

This is a great trail for just getting out for a nice bike ride any time of day without having to worry about traffic. The hills are moderate it's really not that hard but it gives you a little bit of extra work out. Glad it's here in our area.

Great trail in the heart of downtown Greenville.

It's a good exercise trail but not worth traveling out of state for. Not very scenic. Lots of inclines which is good if you want to keep in shape. Didn't have to walk the bike any. You need to have gears to get up hills.

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!

Awesome trail.

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.

This is a great cycling trail! Explore downtown Easley at one end and Pickens at the other end-both are quaint small towns. The trail has great scenery and some moderate climbs.
