This trail is perfectly suited for biking or running. For hiking/nature, not so much. It's completely paved (hard on the feet) and for the most part follows manmade structures--power lines, ditches, subdivision boundaries, etc. There is little to no shade on the trail. This is not a casual, quiet forest walk. You might see some deer if you go at the right time of the day, but that's about as exciting as it gets. Also if you have the proper state permits you can fossil-hunt for shark teeth and other marine fossils in the creek. (Make sure you get the permit first. Penalties for unauthorized fossil-hunting are severe from what I understand.)

Definitely the best backpacking trail in the Charleston area. Lots of different types of forests to captivate the eyes and senses. Campsites are well maintained. If you plan to go in the summer make sure you have plenty of water. The only minor inconvenience is that a few road crossings aren’t as well marked and are hard to find the re-entry point. All in all a great place to get out into the Lowcountry wilderness.

Great paved (mostly asphalt) trail for laid-back riding or walking. Mostly in the shade. Too many "cyclists" that should be out on the roads lately. I'm a cyclist, and simply can't understand why anyone with a serious road bike, full spandex, and clipless pedals would be so rude as to ride on an otherwise family friendly trail. If you're a cyclist, wanting to get some safe miles in, go find a decent loop route, or hit up SCTAC Donaldson Center loop a few times, and quit buzzing by couples and families at 22+ mph. You're ready for the road at that point. Talk to the local bike shops and ask about good routes and group rides. Anyway, great asset for the upstate.

Very nice trail. Only did a 1.5 mile out from peak pharmacy parking location. Large bridge was fun for kids. Nice and wide. Good shade on part we walked. Will definitely do again.

If cycling on a road bike I’d skip this section and just do from the zoo to travelers rest. The conestee section is alright but then you go through a neighborhood that leads back to the SRT but it turns into rocks and 3 in sand. Had to unclip and walk along the median. Finally turned around. The upper half of this trail going up to travelers rest is really nice, flat, and paved. Just think this part isn’t finished/ready yet.

Did this walk today in hot, humid conditions. Plenty of shade and a good number of hills to make it moderately difficult.

Great trail! We enjoyed a lot. Only if it has some places for rest along the route.

Walking

Heavily trafficked trail through Spartanburg, but people watching is half the fun here. Rental bikes are an option on one end. Lots of trail side improvements being made like exercise stops, and a dirt bike track, but most are not currently open due to COVID-19 measures. You can walk off trail to patronage some businesses, which is fun. Bench swings located about halfway through.

This is a rail trail that goes between Pickens and Easley. It's paved the entire way and is similar to the Swamp Rabbit except more ups and downs that give you a better workout. I went in June and it was blazing hot in some places because of the lack of shade but there are plenty of well-placed benches along the way to rest. I'd use this for exercise if you live nearby, or to spend a day exploring Pickens and Easley by bike. Both seem like cute small towns.

A great paved path great for a hike, a run, or a bike. I’ve been back for all three. Feels natural despite its close proximity to beautiful downtown Summerville.

daddy walk with kids. We love starting off in the peak area to go over the big bridge. Kids like turtle spotting

Had a great experience today on the Spanish Moss Trail...so peaceful, well maintained, many shady areas and great views. Encountered few people walking and biking. We truly enjoyed our morning riding on this trail!

I use this trail regularly for running and biking. Flat, paved, maintained. I usually go early mornings and don’t see many people. Trail has multiple access points.

We began our bike trip at the trailhead closest to the major bridge crossing over the broad river. The trip across the river alone is worth the travel time to the trail. After a week of heavy rain, the first 5 miles of the trail held up well under the rain. We then headed back to to the trailhead to complete our trip. The trail is nice and flat and great for the family to enjoy.

Great trail, definitely some muddy spots and lots of mosquitos where there was water or mud. But overall great hike, my dog enjoyed it as well.
