The ACE Basin Greenway is a nature path along SC Hwy 303 that follows an old Atlantic Coast Railroad bed and runs underneath a beautiful piney wood canopy — excellent for exercise!
The ACE Basin Greenway trailhead is located on a three-acre site about two miles north of the intersection of US Hwy 17 and SC Hwy 303. It is adjacent to a CSX rail crossing in the Green Pond community. Phase 1 of the trail runs along an old abandoned Atlantic Coast Rail Road Line right of way that parallels SC Hwy 303 for about 1.8 miles to Clover Hill Road. Phase 2 added about a mile of trail and features a bridge crossing the Ashepoo River.
The trail is ideal for walking, biking, general exercise, and bird watching. It is a flat path comprised of a dirt/concrete base built on the old elevated rail bed. You can park at the trailhead on Folly Creek Lane at the intersection of SC Hwy 303 and Folly Creek.
The trailhead is on a three-acre tract of land which has an 18-car parking area on a gravel base. It has several picnic tables and a trash receptacle. There are no restrooms or water stations currently at this site.
