Sawmill Branch Trail Website

The residential hub of Summerville, SC, located just north of Charleston, is blessed with one of the longest continuous multi-use greenways in the greater Charleston area. The Sawmill Branch Trail is an asphalt multi-use path stretching 6.1 miles along the Sawmill Branch that is enjoyed by cyclists and pedestrians alike. The trail is easily accessible from Interstate 26, and two pathways parallel each other on opposites sides of Sawmill Branch for much of the route. Cyclists will appreciate the underpasses that allow users to avoid most major intersections; users only contend with road crossings on roads with minimal traffic. Although there are no benches, water fountains, or restrooms along the route, the trail passes several gas stations and is near commercial areas. There is some shade on the route depending on the time of day, and a light breeze is common. Although the trail is well-used, it is rarely crowded and is a good place to get in a longer run or bike ride.
