Q: What do those white stencils in the middle of the trail mean?

A: The stencils in the middle of the trail reading “SRT###” are part of the Emergency 911 Action Plan with the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office called the E-911 System. If there is an emergency on the trail, please call 911 and locate the nearest trail stencil to notify dispatchers of your location on the trail. ‘SRT’ identifies the Swamp Rabbit Trail. The following 3 digits represent the mile and tenth mile you are located near. For example “SRT314? means you are at mile 31.4 on the Swamp Rabbit (and next door to the Swamp Rabbit Cafe & Grocery and TTR Bike’s Ride Center). In the case of an emergency, you will never be any farther than .05 miles from a stencil to identify your exact location on the trail.
