- This is a greenway, not a speedway. Keep it under 20 mph and slower when around others.
- The trail is not a silent disco. Please keep one ear open.
- Stay to the right side of the trail. Practice Southern hospitality by saying “on your left” or using your bell when passing.
- Your mom doesn’t like cleaning up after you, and neither do we. Carry out all trash.
- There is no poop fairy. Clean up after your dog.
- Dogs don’t make good speed bumps, so keep them on a short leash.

The stencils in the middle of the trail reading “SR###” 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. ‘SR’ identifies the Swamp Rabbit Trail. The following 3 digits represent the mile and tenth mile you are located near. For example “SR314 means you are at mile 31.4 on the Green Line of the Swamp Rabbit Trail network (and next door to the Swamp Rabbit Cafe & Grocery). 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.

Geocaches can be found all over the world. It is common for geocachers to hide caches in locations that are important to them, reflecting a special interest or skill of the cache owner. These locations can be quite diverse. They may be at your local park, at the end of a long hike, underwater or on the side of a city street.
There are over 2.1 million geocaches in the world today. As of July, 2013, nearly 125 active caches are located within approximately one 1/4 mile from the Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail, and more are being hidden every day. So here’s another opportunity to enjoy this great Upstate recreational resource.
