Running on The Palmetto Trail, Spartanburg, South Carolina
By arungupta on Jun 11, 2011
The Palmetto Trail is planned to be a 425+ mile recreational trail for hiking, biking, running, and some parts for equestrian traversing the state of South Carolina. It currently consists of 235 miles in bits and pieces through different couties.
The trail runs through Spartanburg, South Carolina - the venue of South East Linux Fest 2011. Even though its only a small distance of about 1.87 miles but out & back makes it about 3.75 miles. And then doubling that up makes it around 7.5 miles. And the trail itself is about 1 mile from the Mariott Spartanburg. So I enjoyed about 9.5 miles of good running this morning.
Here is my running chart:
The trail is very well shaded with tall trees and also has mile markers every 0.5 mile. The trail runs along with an old and unused train track for about half a mile and is also part of the Hub City Connector prorgam of the city of Spartanburg.
If you happen to be in the neighborhood, dont forget to run through this trail!
