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.

Hours: Dawn to dusk


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.
