Cycling Saluda Shoals Park

Saluda Shoals Park runs along side the Saluda River just to the east of the Lake Murray Dam in South Carolina.  We started out with a look at the dam – though the view of Lake Murray is nice, there really isn’t much to see of the dam itself.

From the dam, we drove to Saluda Shoals Park where we began our ride by the upper boat ramp.  From there, the paved bike trail leads to the east along the river’s edge for about 2 1/4 miles before ending at the lower boat ramp.

Along the way there are several spots with benches to enjoy the view, and we also saw a couple of kids fishing with a nice size stringer full of fish.  The trail is popular with joggers as well as cyclists, but it wasn’t at all crowded.

This is a pretty spot for a ride, with a lot of spots to just stop and enjoy the views of the river, and a lot of terrific spots for taking photos.
