West Ashley Greenway

The West Ashley Greenway is one of 1600 rail-trails supported by Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, a nonprofit organization that is working to create a nationwide network of trails from former rail lines and connecting corridors. Previously an unused railroad corridor, this "rail-trail" is now a great place to walk Fido in Charleston! The map below shows a parking area with convenient access to the West Ashley Greenway. Rails-to-Trails Conservancy has generously provided map data for this trail to Bring Fido for informational purposes only. For more detailed trail information, please visit TrailLink.com.

    Misleading Review

    Everyone should know the harder surface mentioned in another review is asphalt. They are currently paving one section with an 8-10 ft of it, with plans to complete the remaining trail soon. NOT DOG FRIENDLY. There will only be small sections on either side for dog walking. This path is being made primarily for cyclists, and the reviewer is actively involved in it's construction. The Greenway deserves 5 bones because it is perfect just as it is. In fairness, I should mention that I also live off of the Greenway, and am adamantly opposed to putting a paved road through my neighborhood when we already have a beautiful and natural trail perfect for dogs.

    I live off of the West Ashley Greenway and can't say enough good things about how much your dogs will enjoy this 7 plus miles of linear park with it's view of the water, marshes and proximity to shopping. A park master plan was just completed by the City of Charleston and a bond passed to add a harder walking surface in some areas, benches, etc. We are also currently installing bags and cans for waste disposal.
    PARKING- The best places to park are at the South Windermere Shopping Center on Folly Rd or St. Andrews Harris Teeter Center on Savannah Hwy.
    WATER: You'll need to bring your own water which is why this rating doesn't have a five bone rating yet. We're working on the water fountain issue.
