WELCOME TO THE SPANISH MOSS TRAIL

The Spanish Moss Trail ‒ The Lowcountry’s Rails to Trail ‒ is a nearly 10-mile greenway located in Northern Beaufort County, South Carolina that has become a “Must-Experience” activity for residents and visitors alike. The Trail is a 12-foot wide, paved path dedicated to those who want to walk, run, bike, fish, skate, scoot or stroll ‒ offering spectacular Lowcountry water and marsh views, coastal wildlife viewing, and historic points of interest as it meanders through Spanish moss-draped neighborhoods. Since 2013, five phases of the 10-Phase Master Plan have been completed and are open for public enjoyment, connecting the City of Beaufort and the Town of Port Royal. When the Trail is fully developed, it will be approximately 16 miles in length. Funding for the Spanish Moss Trail is made possible by public funding and private donations.

The Friends of the Spanish Moss Trail
The Friends of the Spanish Moss Trail was founded in 2012, by Dean Moss and other community-minded leaders, as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life in Beaufort County, SC by advocating for the development, enhancements and maintenance of the Spanish Moss Trail. The continued success of the Trail is made possible through community partnerships, local government participation, and private support from people like you. The Friends are governed by an active Board of Directors and led by Volunteer Executive Director Dean Moss. In addition to the many volunteers and contributors supporting the Trail, the Friends have one professional staff member, Sissy Perryman, who is dedicated to the Trail’s public awareness and development needs.

Plans for 2017-2018

In addition to the 10 miles of Trail that are open, an additional section up to Clarendon Road is under construction and will be paved once a modification is made to a conservation easement on the property for which the Trail runs. The next phase of construction is the much-anticipated extension of the Trail from Ribaut Road to the Sands Beach in Port Royal and then from Clarendon Road to the Whale Branch River – bringing the Lowcountry a connected 16-mile Trail.
