The Beaufort Rail Trail project will convert a 20-mile stretch of the former Port Royal Railroad into a cycling and pedestrian corridor. The Beaufort Rail Trail will provide a safe and accessible pedestrian and bicycle route that will not only be a recreational asset, but provide an alternative mode of transportation that will link people to jobs, services, and schools. The trail will be a great asset for Beaufort County residents and visitors, adding tremendously to the quality of life in our region.

    I am thrilled that this project is underway. We have walked a portion of this rail trail for several years and look forward to a more comfortable walk and the opportunity to ride. Surely this will enhance recreational quality of life and attract even more visitors who enjoy a walk or ride through a natural setting on their vacation.

    The Trail of Your Dreams
    Imagine gliding along on your bike through the Beaufort South Carolina countryside, crossing Marsh views, winding between neighborhoods and river views and weaving among tall stately pines and oak trees. Imagine doing this without having to worry about cars and trucks. Now imagine doing this for 20miles on one trail! No, that’s not a dream; it’s the Silver Comet Trail. This is a great idea and will be a great infrastructure project for the people of Beaufort, supported by grant monies. I just don’t like the name. Change it to the Silver comet trail like the one from Georgia. Oh and by the way no need to reinvent the wheel. Georgia has over 500 miles already done and its a great program. Good management begins with understanding available resources and utilizing them.

    The group was started to support the Promotion, Development, Maintenance and Use of the Rail Trail. This is an exciting time to become involved with the Rail Trail. The project is still on the drawing board however there are many segments of the trail that are accessible to Cyclist and Hikers. As the project evolves there will be many opportunities for volunteers to help build and improve the Trail. I envision weekend work projects to enhance the trail. We will also have organized rides and walks, along with activities at venues along the trail, like movies, and dining.
