And since we are talking about events that you will be coming to Greenville SC to see, here are some ways you can get active with these nine alternative places to run that are not our Swamp Rabbit Trail.
- Lake Conestee Nature Park. A private nonprofit managed park located between Greenville and Mauldin. Perfect for trail runners and surface runners alike. Six miles of natural surface trails and six miles of paved trails.
- Paris Mountain State Park. Great place to get into trail running. Just outside of town, there are 15 miles of hiking and biking trails. Run on Saturdays to avoid the bikes.
- Greer City Park. More popular with roadrunners and those who don’t mind loops. Various loops wind around Fountain Plaza and Gardens, behind City Hall and by a pond and gazebo.
- Cedar Falls. Offers two miles of trails past a historic site and scenic waterfall. Dogs welcome.
- Furman University. Several miles of trails on the campus grounds surrounded by beautiful views. There is a 1.5-mile loop around the 40-acre lake or a more challenging 5K course which winds through the campus.
- Downtown Greenville. If you like dodging obstacles, then this may be the run for you. You can easily make a mile on the main street and add distance by taking side streets.
- Cleveland Park. Features paved trails that wind through wooded areas next to the Reedy River and along flat grassy lands. You can extend your run by using the connector trail to Falls Park in downtown Greenville.
- Oak Grove Lake. An 18-acre fishing lake with a .8 mile loop around the water. A neighborhood borders this lake on one side and you can easily extend your run by taking to the neighborhood streets. Watch your step, this is a trail, although relatively flat but does have a wooded area where the creek bed is exposed.
- Legacy Park at Verdae. Located in the rapidly growing Verdae area this trail may one day grow with the community. Right now it is a short running path that loops a small fountain pond but here you can also expand your run by taking to the neighborhood streets.
Hope these help you expand your running experience and get you outside! These trails can be walked, hiked, biked and run. Enjoy!
