Lovely trail to experience nature enjoying the sounds of birds, the elegance of live oaks, and quietude of the area. Great place to bike ride. Leisurely walk or jog at own speed. Parking area. A place to forget about traffic and environmental noise.

The Spanish Moss Trail is built on the bed of the old railroad line that served Beaufort. The town is completing more trail every year with over ten miles complete now. It mostly winds through the backcountry with only occasional views of civilization. Lovely water and marsh views along the way. A great place to walk or bike.

This is becoming a major attraction in Beaufort. Now 11 miles of wide, flat, paved bike and walking path, including some pretty stretches through tidal marshes, creeks and estuaries. Great for families. One day it will be 14 miles!

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.
