Lake Conestee Near Greenville, SC

Mr. T and I wandered over to Lake Conestee today near Greenville, SC.  This is our go to place when we just want a short walk out in nature.  I haven’t gotten around to writing about our hike on the Chattooga River in Georgia but hope to get to that in the next day or so while it is still fresh in my mind.

Posting some photos below from today’s walk.  It’s usually very good in the fall, winter, and spring. In the summer there are lots of bugs that make it miserable for the most part so we stay away then.  It looks like they are doing a lot of trail building over there so I think major improvements are on the way. I also understand a lot of mountain biking goes on here but I haven’t seen too many bicycles when I’ve been there.  The Swamp Rabbit Trail (bicycle) skirts one side of park and heads north to Greenville.  A lot of the water that was still had a layer of ice covering them which you can see in some of the photos below.  It’s that cold here in Greenville today.

We hiked on a trail I had never been on before which was Racoon Run which skirted the Reedy River for much of its length and I thought it was nice and worth walking on. You can pick up the trailhead over by the new dog park if you want. It comes out by the large iron bridge that crosses the Reedy. Check it out!

No bicycles today but we did see some people out walking their dogs but not much traffic on the trails at all.
