Started a 10 mile out and back at Alston Trailhead near the Peak Pharmacy. Wide trail, not technically difficult, flat with numerous bridge crossings. Boardwalk in good shape with a few areas in need of repair; do watch your feet on the bridges. Past peak leaf season today but still very pretty. Next year will try to come a few weeks earlier. Consider stopping at George's Grocery(around mile 6.5 from the start) if you need some refreshment. Watched some YouTube video before going and they are spot on.

Great trail for riding but the parking areas are not easy to find. The train depot parking lot is easier to find since the depot is shown on Google maps. Turn right at the depot parking lot and cross the trail to get to a better parking area without potholes. I think one of the better parking area is at the Broome Lane and Anders Lane intersection. It’s not as busy and it has a porte potty that’s kept very clean. The depot parking area has a bicycle repair station with tools, air pump and a work station to hold your bike elevated so you don’t have to squat to work on it. Overall this is a nice paved trail.

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.

I was actually rollerblading. Fantastic trail for that!!!

Great paved walking or biking trail.

We just went on a brisk 1.5 mile walk with our dog post Hurricane Flo. Nice breeze. Not a very busy trail. The Awendaw Path was definitely less traveled as the green got much thicker the further we went. Lots of swamp areas. Look out for the large female banana spiders! Overall an easy straight in and back trail.

Beautiful, straightforward hike. Little to no change in elevation. Tons of spiders, but overall a nice, easy day hike. The bridge is the best part!

Nice walk. Pretty view of the river.

Quiet. Nice breezeway.

Nice and easy flat trail
Did .7 in/out on the prosperity peak trail. Very heavy mosquito population so bring the bug spray! Great little hour hike for me and the 30lb ergo held 18 month old.

Great for my short runs. Flat, fast and mostly shaded.

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

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.

I love this trail, even though it's totally paved. It's perfect for walking, training for runs of all distances, and cycling. There is some shade and many access points. I love that you don't have to cross many streets-2!

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.

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.
