Trail Area Highlights

Lake Conestee Nature Park currently offers approximately six miles of natural surface trails, six miles of paved trails and approximately 4,000 linear feet of boardwalks and bog-walks.  Highlights include the large bridge over the Reedy River and several overlooks for spotting wildlife.  Part of the Swamp Rabbit Trail also traverses the park.  All the trails are flat and easy, but it can be easy to get lost, so make sure you know your route and/or take a map with you.

I joined Hike it Baby in 2014 when my son was just 2 months old.  A year later, I became an Ambassador for the Greenville, SC branch.  I love raising my kids on the trail and meeting so many like-minded families!
