A Walk in the Park: West Ashley Greenway

Several of our city parks have jogging paths and walking trails, but if you’re looking for something a little more off the beaten path, check out the West Ashley Greenway.

The trail is 10.5 miles one way and perfect for hiking or biking. Part of the East Coast Greenway, it begins at the South Windermere Shopping Center on Folly Road and stretches to Johns Island. Parking is available at either end and the trail is open from dawn to dusk.

It’s 100 feet wide and mostly hard-parked dirt. Plus, the trail is flat so it’s great for beginning bikers and kids. For the most part, the trail runs parallel to U.S. Highway 17 past neighborhoods, parks and marshes so there’s plenty to see.
