    Perfect way to spend a leisurely afternoon in the city. We explored gardens and grave sites at a nice pace all while taking in the beautiful architecture that Charleston has to offer.

    This is a nicely shaded, smooth and well maintained trail that crosses some bridges and goes into a beautiful wooded area. There are several areas near marsh and water. This trail starts with about 2 or 3 miles of black pavement that goes through the backs of neighborhoods, and crosses streets. This first part is smooth enough for wheelchairs or strollers. Then the path becomes hard pack dirt for the next 5 or so miles, It is about 8 and 1/4 miles long total. The end of the path near Johns Island is the prettiest.No more construction on the path when we went today. Great for biking and jogging, great way to get some fresh air and exercise.

    We started at the wappoo rd end. Parked in a vacant lot next to the start, trail is asphalt, winds through tree covered pathway between homes and open fields. One difficult spot, have to cross major road way (hwy 61). Walk ended at Higgins pier overlooking the Ashley river. 2.5 miles long. Very nice walk for a morning stroll, not busy at 900am in the morning. Great walk for strollers or young kids.

    The trail is an old road so we have been told. The hike was pretty easy. The cascade is to the right after you pass the horse mounting. Be sure to use bug spray. Lots of nats hovering round. Butter flies everywhere. After we finished we went down a little way to the smoke town riding stables and took a 1hr trail ride. They also have 2.5 hours which takes the trail and will take you right to the cascade.
