West Ashley Greenway
Although flat and easy, the 10.5-mile, out-and-back West Ashley
Greenway is a gem of a trail in the southwest part of Charleston.
A portion of the trail is a paved 8' wide asphalt trail, although mostly hard-packed dirt corridor
it is a pleasant greenway
that starts at a residential and commercial area, then parallels US 17
past neighborhoods, schools, parks, and a marsh before
reaching its southern terminus that includes a small parking area and the turn-around point.
Future plans will include connections to other bike/ped facilities.
10.5 miles one way.
From downtown Charleston, drive west on US 17 and cross the Ashley
River. About half-mile after the bridge, turn left onto Folly Road (SC
171). At the second light, turn right into South Windermere Shopping
Center. You can begin the trail behind the center on the right.
