The Swamp Rabbit Trail is a 22-mile multi-use (walking and bicycling) greenway that traverses along the Reedy River, an old railroad corridor and City parks to connect Travelers Rest with the City of Greenville, South Carolina.
The Swamp Rabbit Interactive Map was inventoried, photographed and developed by the City of Greenville GIS Division, with support from the City’s Parks and Recreation Department and the Greenville County Recreation District. Its purpose is to aid everyone - from out-of-town visitors interested in experiencing the Swamp Rabbit Trail to regular trail users - by providing useful trip-planning information. The map is especially content-rich inside the City of Greenville — featuring trail amenities and points of interest, as well as special considerations for a safe experience. Photos, IPIX 360 degree images, and audio are available at select locations. This web map is accessible from all types of devices and operating systems.
Using the Swamp Rabbit Interactive Map
We recommend using a standard internet Web Browser such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari for pre-trip planning. Go directly to the map and bookmark it for future reference.
Not all types of the available map features are displayed immediately. Some turn off and on based on the map extent of your current view. Others need to be turned on by the user. Be sure to go to LAYERA to turn on viewing additional information such as water fountains, bike lanes and rack, ATMs, etc. which otherwise would not be seen. Turn on the Aerial Photography background for an even richer experience. Jump directly to a section of the trail by selecting a BOOKMARK.
