We enjoy taking cycling trips and this trail was really very interesting. We actually hopped on mid-trail and road it to the end (it kinda runs generally east-west, so this would be at the west end...) and turned around and road it all the way...More

The planners did a wonderful job putting this Beaufort GEM together. It is a wonderful addition to this community.

Popped onto the trail at Depot Street in Beaufort. This is a wide, well-maintained walking and biking path with a concrete surface. It passes through or around a historic warehouse that's quite interesting. There's a drinking fountain by the warehouse which was welcome on a...More

It is easy to get close to nature by bicycling, running or walking on the Spanish Moss trail. The flat, paved pathway winds along the edge of Beaufort and Port Royal, SC. Very enjoyable and a good reason to visit the area.

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...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.

I suggest that you look at the Spanish Moss trail website for a map, a list of trailheads, and suggestions for parking. We entered at the Depot Street trailhead, which was close enough to our hotel that we could ride our... More
1) Can we rent bikes anywhere in Beauford to ride the Spanish Moss trail? This is a day trip for us. 2) Is there any kind of a map that shows just where the trail runs? I understand it is not a loop and that is ok but we really have no idea where it is located. Thank you!
