There is a very gradual incline almost the whole way from Greenville to Traveler's Rest. The ride back to Greenville is very easy! Lol

Mostly flat with a few gently rises, mostly out near Furman Univ.

Depends on where you are. There are very few steep inclines. A few small hills but for the most part, straight and flat.

The trail is very flat. We walked it but saw many bikers going both directions very easily.

There was very little change. My wife had a small trailer with our daughter she pulled behind her bike with no problems.

Not steep at all. Just gradual. Beautiful trail with lots of neat restaurants and shops in Travelers Rest and Greenville. Very enjoyable

Most of the trail follows an old train track, and the slopes are very gradual. However, if you follow the trail the entire length, it occasionally leaves the train path and has some brief but fairly steep sections. The downtown section in particular is a bit steeper than some of the comments suggest. It is all paved and smooth and easy walking, though.

Relatively flat, it follows the water, but there are some waterfalls. They are maybe 20 ft drops? It’s a popular bike trail, if that helps, and paved. So never as steep as a hiking trail.

The trail is almost flat. There is a gradual rise from Greenville to Travelers Rest, but it is hardly noticible.

The trail is 22 miles long currently and slightly elevates 277 feet +/- goes from a elevation of 819 feet above sea level (Greenville SC) to Travelers Rest SC with a above sea level of 1096 feet on a former railroad. You can get a online map at the City of Greenville Website.

The SRT is a repurposed railway, so is gently sloping. You don't notice it much.
