The Swamp Rabbit Trail is a 21-mile multi-use greenway. It runs along an old railroad corridor, the Reedy River, and through City parks. It offers fun, non-motorized recreation and transportation opportunities.
Varying from 8 to 12 feet wide, the trail features a paved surface for bicycles, skaters and walkers, with an additional rubberized surface for runners. Amenities along the trail include lighting, picnic areas, benches, water fountains, restrooms, signage and bicycle racks. Views of the Reedy River are plentiful throughout the trail.
A 2014 study estimated that more than a half million people annually use the trail, a quarter of whom are tourists. In 2016, Greenville County Recreation estimated the trail's economic impact on the county to be $7 million per year. The Swamp Rabbit Trail has been described as "one of the most popular assets in Greenville County...proving that when it comes to such trails, if you build them they will come."
