Doodle Trail Opening - Saturday, May 23

This blog has been following the story of the Doodle Trail, the route that runs between the cities of Easley and Pickens in South Carolina, for the last several years. What started out as an idea in the 2010 City of Easley Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan is now a reality in May 2015.

The Grand Opening of the biking and walking paved trail will be officially on Saturday, May 23 at 10:00 am at 514 Fleetwood Drive in Ealsey. Come one, come all! Come by bike, by foot, by wheelchair. Come as you are!

Taking only 5 years to go from concept to plan to reality is pretty amazing, especially considering that two different communities had to come together in aligning resources, priorities and budgets. This is a huge celebration for these communities and another marker of the growing story of success of biking in the upstate. I hope to see you there!


  1. Great story! Can't wait to walk and ride on the Doodle Trail. Let's hope some of the Clemson-Central-Pendleton ideas come to fruition just as well as that did.
