Spartanburg Rail Trail

GTIOne of the best things about getting out in the road are the places that you find along the way. One of those places can be found in Spartanburg, SC. It is called the Spartanburg Rail trail. It is a 2 mile walking path in the downtown area that is not only beautiful, but also safe.

“This is the most popular walking and cycling trail in Spartanburg County, and one of the finest rails-to-trail projects to be found anywhere. Completed and opened in 2004, the Mary Black Rail Trail is a 2-mile long trail just south of downtown. Bikes are available for rent from the B-Cycle station at the trailhead at Henry and Union streets. Adjacent to the state-of-the-art YMCA that opened in 2012, the Rail Trail also passes by the City’s first dog park, the appropriately named Rail Tail, whose entrance sits just across from Duncan Park on Union Street.” –

What a way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Start out by taking a nice drive to the upstate, and then getting out and taking a nice walk along a scenic path. Talk about killing two birds with one stone. If this is the kind of driver you want to be, do it in a Volkswagen and see the difference that German engineering can make.
