    Greenville, SC rails to trails

    Has anyone heard the outcome on the old rail system from downtown to TR? I read the decision was supposed to be in by March 16, but haven't heard anything since...

    Here's hoping we end up with a new trail!

    I've never heard of that one but I'd love to see it happen. I live extremely close to Conestee and work downtown. I heard they plan on making some trails around Lake Conestee, though.

    Timmons Park over off of E. North Street... it's a small loop not great, but not bad either. i quit riding there because the singletrack is going through most of the frisbee golf course and i was tired of dodging the stoned out their mind frisbee golfers and their dogs not on leashes.

    these pix aren't mine but you get the idea

    what Timmons park used to be like before disc golf


    What disc golf has done to the park.




    i usually head out either to Issaqueena or Spartanburg

    My riding par'dner in town is working for the city as a Urban Architect. He led the Bike to work day and has spoken with the mayor about getting some approved trails in town as well as extra bike lanes for the roadies. He is an advocate and will push for it. There is big hope for this town.

    There is some singletrack Eagle's trail by the zoo as well. . .

    Hey G, if you don't mind i'd like to use some of your pics for our UpstateSorba website....i try to post as much as possible on the greenways projects

    though as a side note i did see somewhere that Ty said they were issuing fines for being on uncompleted section of the SwampRabbit Trail...As much as everyone wants this project done - we need to let them finish it. frustrating i know.
