A traveling cyclists has different needs and desires than the typical B&B guest, and Swamp Rabbit Inn recognizes that.

“Diverse riding experiences, a mild climate, and the unique southern-mountain flavor make upstate South Carolina a must-visit biking destination.

Take a relaxing pedal down the Swamp Rabbit Trail, a 22-mile paved greenway trail connecting downtown Greenville with Travelers Rest, South Carolina.”
