A nicely paved and maintained trail, that traverses a diverse area of neighborhoods with reasonable views of the marshlands. The signage is good and readable, and provides a reasonable amount of historical context about the original rail line.

This trail had gotten better and better. The trail is well maintained for bicycles. The surroundings are scenic. And everything is safe.

I read many reviews and wasn't quite so sure how to find this. I read on the trail site to park at the tech college. We had to use google maps, once in the lot of the tech college to try to figure out how to connect. It's way at the back of a corner of the parking lot near... More

What a great place to walk or bike. As it is an old rail road bed it is very flat and a pleasure to walk or bike. Crosses marshes and creeks and swamps and offer great fiews.

This is a wonderful use of space. The trail runs about 8 miles, maybe more. We walked on two sections including near the old depot.

We have only been on the trail twice since it opened. I will be glad when it goes all the way to The Sands. It is nicely kept up and I liked the little book box at one spot. Nice views.

This paved trail in Beaufort is the perfect place to bike or walk with beautiful marsh views and limited street crossings. It's a great opportunity to see wading birds, but there are plenty of shorebirds, songbirds and woodpeckers along the trail as well. I particularly enjoy pausing on the trestles to appreciate the tranquility of the saltmarsh and just watch... More

I ride the trail several times per week on my bicycle. It is excellent. Even though you are in the city, it's like you are a million miles away from it all. Well maintained and planned.

My brother lives in Beaufort and is walker, so that he and I have walked various sections of this trail over the years. The trail is a wonderful asset to the city. My congratulations to Beaufort on this far sighted addition to the city's attractions.
