Travelers Rest 6/11K Walk
The walk of the town of Travelers Rest has a unique variety of antique and specialty shops. However the one thing they are most proud of is their connection to the Swamp Rabbit Trail. The Swamp Rabbit Trail connects the city of Greenville to tranquil Traveler’s Rest to the north. This walk is primarily on the trail which is closed to all motorized vehicles. It is a paved path through downtown Travelers Rest to Furman University to the south. It briefly loops off the trail onto Furman University Campus along the lake, then back onto the Swamp Rabbit Trail and back again to the starting point. Whether you crave the outdoors, or just a quiet repose, we invite you to enjoy both on this tranquil walk in Travelers Rest! Registration: 9:00 am, walk begins 9:30 am. Trail Rating: 6/11K - 1A Special Classifications: Animal Safari, Food For Thought, Ice Cream Parlors, Points of Reference, State Street Sashay, Treasure Hunt - A way to walk our precious trails, United States Post Offices, Walking the USA A - Z Cost: Walks are free; IVV Credit $3; donations accepted. New Walker Packets $5 After the walk, we will meet for our quarterly club meeting at MoJo's, 21 Plaza dr. Ste B, Travelers Rest, SC 29690

    What we're about

    Have you been looking for something to do? Something to improve your physical and mental health? Something fun? Something to get you out of the house and provide opportunities to make new friends? Something for you personally or an activity for the entire family? Then volkssporting is that special something for you. Chances are very good that you have never heard of this sport. And that’s okay. Volkssporting is dedicated to promoting fun, fitness and friendship through organized noncompetitive, self-paced sporting events. It offers outdoor organized activities for everyone, regardless of age or physical condition. Seniors and youth, singles, couples and families are all welcome. And you don’t have to be an athlete to be a volkssporter! These sporting events (the vast majority are walking related) are administered in the 50 states by a nationwide grassroots network of chartered sports clubs that sponsor more than 3,000 events annually. We, the UpState PathFinders, are a part of the American Volkssport Association (AVA), a nonprofit organization that sanctions volkssport events in the U.S. Other sports offered on a very limited basis include cycling, swimming, skating, cross country skiing and snow shoeing. Many people adopt volkssporting as part of their lifestyle and have completed hundreds of events and walked thousands of miles. While many begin walking for fitness (that inevitable medical wake-up call), most continue because of friendships and social benefits offered through the local clubs.
