This trail starts right behind the Starbucks in the South Windermere shopping Center, and there is a bunch of parking around so no problems. They paved the first 3 miles so it can handle bikes and even roller blades. Easy , flat, and safe run...More

Miles of paved and unpaved way for walking, running or biking. From Croghan Landing Dr towards downtown it is paved. Going towards Main Rd it is gravel. Parking at the Main Rd end, as well as at Croghan Landing is available.

I have been on the West Ashley greenway a couple of times. While I like it as a place to get some exercise, it is a bit desolate in areas and the scenery is limited. I wish they could do more to enhance it.
