What a great way to see the Low Country from a different perspective. Ten miles (of the projected 14 miles) of this rails-to-trails project have been completed. The trail is a 12-foot wide concrete path that follows an abandoned rail line through the backyards, along the marsh, and over a couple of creeks as you cycle (or walk or run)... More

Don't know if I would have enjoyed it if it was 95 degrees out, but with lovely Spring weather and a nice breeze, it was a lovely walk. Saw alligators, tons of birds and other critters. Nice time.

Walked approximately 3.5 miles yesterday morning - Depot Road south to Broome Lane. Steady flow of walkers, bikers, joggers including locals and out of town visitors. Great breeze and everyone was courteous and respectful of each other and their use of the trail.

Really enjoyed the trail.,Google isn't exact in getting you there but you can access it at many points with parking or walk in along main roads of Beaufort. Some great scenic views and water ways. Watched 5 deer make there way across a marsh. Way cool.

Our Bed and Breakfast had bikes to use and we went on the Spanish Moss Trail. Not sure how long the trail is, but we biked for and hour. Easy ride.

The trail has a comfortable width so that walkers & bikers can pass one another. It is also nicely shaded much of the time which offers a reprieve from the heat. The views of the waterways and old buildings, flowers and trees are spectacular. There are great photo opportunities too. Occasional wildlife such as a snake falling to the ground... More

Has to be one of the most beautiful bike trails around. House we rented came with bikes and it was really easy to find the trail. Beautiful scenery and houses to look at while riding the trail - several bridges over marshy areas with seabirds on the trees. The trail was very well maintained with several places along the way...

Lovely trail to experience nature enjoying the sounds of birds, the elegance of live oaks, and quietude of the area. Great place to bike ride. Leisurely walk or jog at own speed. Parking area. A place to forget about traffic and environmental noise.

The Spanish Moss Trail is built on the bed of the old railroad line that served Beaufort. The town is completing more trail every year with over ten miles complete now. It mostly winds through the backcountry with only occasional views of civilization. Lovely water and marsh views along the way. A great place to walk or bike.

This is becoming a major attraction in Beaufort. Now 11 miles of wide, flat, paved bike and walking path, including some pretty stretches through tidal marshes, creeks and estuaries. Great for families. One day it will be 14 miles!
