Swamp Rabbit Trail Closed in City Limits

The entire Swamp Rabbit Trail section within the Greenville city limits will be closed until further notice beginning April 6th as an anti-COVID measure, along with closing down all non-essential businesses in the city and the emergency ordinance requiring social distancing.

The city says this is a necessary public safety measure for the following reasons: 

  • Trail usage overall is increasing as more residents take advantage of spring weather
  • Due to park closures, there is more concentrated pedestrian traffic on open sections of the trail close to downtown
  • Most of the City’s trail network is only 11-feet-wide, which does not allow adequate distance between users
  • Increased respiration when exercising increases the likelihood of expelling droplets just by breathing
  • Full closure of the trail reduces confusion regarding where the public is allowed and makes it easier to follow the guidelines
