I liked that it was flat and paved. In other words, an easy ride. It takes you through the old neighborhoods. On a warm day, this is a great way to spend an afternoon. There weren't many people riding the day I was out there....More

This trail was beyond amazing. Beautiful views along the trail. Nice flat trail for bikes or walking. I LOVED it and hope we can get something like this started back home. I am in total awe of the beauty of this trail.

Nice nature trail. Some parts feel a little unsafe. Love the tidal water views approaching Beaufort. Gets a little sketch once you reach Port Royal.
