Spartanburg County Trails

In partnership with many others, Partners for Active Living is spearheading an effort to build a connected trails network throughout the urban area. The complete system will total 32 miles of connected trails: 11 miles of existing and 21 miles of new trails. See Greenways and Trail Plans for more on our collective vision.
