The Doodle Trail represents the opportunity to carry on the memory of this historic railroad and preserve the vital connection that was forged between Easley and Pickens over 120 years ago.
The Doodle Trail is a 7.5 mile rails-to-trails partnership between the City of Easley and the City of Pickens that opened Memorial Day Weekend 2015. The multi-use trail is open from dawn to dusk for biking, walking, running and rollerblading. Unauthorized mopeds or motorized vehicles are not permitted on the trail.
The Doodle Trail is not only a nice paved trail for the entirety of the route, it is also a safe path located mostly away from traffic with only a few road crossings. There are various scenic bridges and nice trailhead areas at both beginning/ending points.
