Y’all know it’s easy to feel cooped up in Charleston, from backed up traffic to slowdowns on the sidewalks. Pump up your tires, because we’re highlighting bike trails to explore this spring and summer for some exercise and fresh air.
West Ashley Greenway
Head to the 10.5-mile Greenway in West Ashley for scenic marsh views. This out-and-back path is partially paved and great for both walkers and bikers. Bonus: You’ve got a pretty good chance of spotting cute dogs out for a walk.
Sawmill Branch Trail
Hit the trail in Summerville on this paved ~7-mile biking and walking path that runs along the Sawmill Branch Canal. Heads up: The trail is expected to reopen May 4 following construction on the Berlin G. Myers Project.
Did you know Hampton Park closes to vehicular traffic at certain hours on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays? The Walk, Run & Roll program welcomes walkers, runners, and bikers to enjoy the park without through traffic. Try your wheels on this 1.5-mile path.
