Trails and Greenways

The development of a Trails and Greenways Master Plan was a "Top Priority" project as identified by Greenville City Council's 2006 Management Agenda. Over the course of the next year, two public meetings were held, more than 450 public comments were received via an on-line survey and the master plan was presented to council in September, 2007. On January 28, 2008 City Council adopted the Trails and Greenway's Master Plan. By doing so they formally recognized the importance of connecting residents and visitors alike to popular destinations throughout the City of Greenville. The Master Plan, amongst other things, encourages physical activity, promotes safe and sustainable transportation, stimulates economic growth and helps to protect environmental quality of open spaces and creek and river corridors.

 

The City of Greenville is actively working to implement the Trails and Greenways Master Plan and promote the use of trails throughout the City. Please take time to browse this site to learn more about our existing Trails System and upcoming projects.

GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail | Greenville Rec

GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail | Greenville Rec | Events Greenville South Carolina | Scoop.it

Greenville Hospital System Swamp Rabbit Trail is a 17.5  mile multi-use trail system that runs along the Reedy River connecting Travelers Rest with the City of Greenville.  The Swamp Rabbit will continue to grow throughout the county offering free, safe and fun recreation and transportation opportunities wherever it goes.

 

Trail Status:
Open: North Greenville Hospital (Hwy 276 @ Grandview Cemetery) to Greenville Tech’s Barton Campus (Cleveland St. 7 Faris Rd.) is 13.5 miles of paved asphalt trail. ReWa Administrative Office (Near Mauldin Rd. & Parkins Mill Rd under I-85) into Lake Conestee Nature Park is about 4 miles of paved asphalt trail with a short “On-Street Connection” section and a crushed stonedust section. Enjoy.


1/2 Mile Markers: Mile markers are installed at 1/2 mile intervals thanks to the hard work of volunteers from Johnson Controls. Jeremy Davis from Set Up Events Inc. has certified the trail distances for running events. The first marker on the northern end starts with the number 23. Eventually mile 0 will be at the NC state line much like an interstate system.


E-911 System (1/10 Mile Markers): The stencils in the middle of the trail reading “SRT###” are part of the Emergency 911 Action Plan with the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office. If there is an emergency on the trail, please call 911 and locate the nearest trail stencil to notify dispatchers of your location on the trail. ‘SRT’ identifies the Swamp Rabbit Trail. The following 3 digits represent the mile and tenth mile you are located near. For example “SRT314″ means you are at mile 31.4 on the Swamp Rabbit (and next door to the Swamp Rabbit Cafe & Grocery and TTR Bike’s Ride Center).


All greenways are closed to any form of motor vehicles.

Trail Etiquette:
Please remember the rules of the road and trail.
Trail users must stop at all road crossings.
Stay right except to pass.
Announce yourself when passing from behind.
Dogs must be on a leash no longer than 6ft.
Dog owners must pick up after their pets.
