Greenways & Trail Plans
In recent years PAL has been working with many public and private partners to implement 32 miles of continuous trail that will allow you to ride or walk from Glendale Shoals to the east to the heart of our community in downtown Spartanburg to the old Anderson Mill to the west.
We often get asked about when projects are moving forward and so we want to keep you in the loop.
On the map below, you will notice that there are three major sections - Lower (west), Middle, and Upper (east). We are providing project updates based on these segments.
