Did you know?
The Swamp Rabbit was a former railroad that was originally built to connect Greenville to other major cities outside of South Carolina. As we all know, this plan didn’t materialize and the railroad was abandoned until the city of Greenville purchased it from the company who owned it. Planning for a multi-use trail began in 2005 and took another 5 years before it officially opened in 2010.
Though the Swamp Rabbit doesn’t link Greenville to out-of-state cities as it had originally planned, it does connect Greenville’s own communities to one another. The master plan for the greenway system will incorporate these cities: Greenville, Travelers Rest, Simpsonville, Mauldin, Fountain Inn and Greer. Currently, the Swamp Rabbit Trail stretches a total of 19.9 miles, the current trail begins at Greenville Technical College, crosses the city of Greenville, proceeds through Falls Park and Furman University, and ends about a mile north of Travelers Rest. Since its opening, Swamp Rabbit has boosted the County’s tourism and economy, attracting more than half a million people who used the trail for cycling, walking, skating, and running — according to a 2014 study. It is considered one of Greenville’s unique attractions.
