More Rail Trails
Hello Gardeners, I’m Amanda McNulty with Clemson Extension and Making It Grow. Since we now have cooler weather and can enjoy outdoor exercise more, I’m going to continue to talk about our rail to trail system in South Carolina. The most famous is the widely popular Swamp Rabbit Trail in Greenville, but in contrast there is one in a rural town filled with charm --the Ten Governors Rail Trail in Edgefield. Over the course of 200 years, this quaint Aiken County town sent ten of its local sons to serve governor. This paved trail, only a mile long, has a history of each one and is unusual in that it is open for use and lit at night – you could enjoy a meal in a delightful downtown restaurant and then walk off your dessert. Be sure to visit the Discovery Center Museum to learn more fascinating history and ask about the annual Camellia Tea.
