Beautiful and tranquil walk. Very easy. Stroller accessible. Many families with dogs, strollers, children on bikes. Wonderful place to spend an afternoon.

Have completed this a few times walking and running. Great views of downtown Charleston and the harbour. I would suggest doing this for the Cooper River Bridge Run. Tons of people, but fun for sure!!

gorgeous late December run trail.

we walk or ride this trail every year at christmas.

I do the bridge quite often. It is exercise with a view!

Just a wonderful place to walk/run.

Nice bike ride. A few people out for afternoon jogs and walks. Saw some turtles in the river, but no gators in the canal this time. I had a little difficulty finding the north trailhead, but saw the sign and found it.

Very pleasant paved path, peaceful

Love the view! Very flat concrete path across the dam. Of course, I found the one piece of broken concrete when I went walking at sundown and came back across in the dark. Twisted my ankle a little. If you park on the Lexington side, it is free and you can make a bathroom stop and rest under one of the covered picnic areas on the Irmo side.

Fun and very beautiful scenery! Enough space for everyone. Kid friendly

hike/ trail run combo great views and trails

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.

Beautiful! Water on both sides and interesting history.

nice flat path I. and out slow pace took 1 1/2 hours

Nice place! It’s a community trail. Paved.

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.

More for long walks and exercise than it is actual hiking or backpacking. Trail is paved the entire way, very well maintained. I love their exercise circuit area, wish they had a pull-up bar. It is long so take a couple bottles of water and a couple snacks and enjoy the day.

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

I am fortunate that I live close enough to this trail to walk it on a regular basis. Don't miss the rose garden near the student center or the koi pond near the amphitheater.

This is a very easy trail. Good for families

Great paved walking or biking trail.

Great view of the city and the only place around to do some climbing for cyclists.

Really nice trail! Water on both sides! Very peaceful. It is paved which was nice and very spacious so plenty of room for people biking and me with my dog!

I run this path weekly, it can be a little hot in the summer in the less shady sections but definitely a great place to get in some miles!

Absolutely every best thing about the Lowcountry. I highly recommend this Trail it is well maintained. definitely wear bug spray

Quiet. Nice breezeway.
