With the Little River flowing right through the middle of this historic town, Laurens had a ready made corridor for public enjoyment. This 1.1 mile trail takes a meandering route through downtown Laurens. This is a great trail for hiking, biking and family fun. This occasionally hilly, paved park trail winds along the Little River and Reedy Fork Creek. If you turn right (south), you will follow a spur to a quiet loop where you can rest on park benches overlooking the river. If you turn left, you will pass under a bridge and walk through a tree-lined, park area. At North Harbor Street, you can return the way you came, or continue across the busy street, follow Hunters Court until it ends (approximately two blocks), turn right, and walk one block to the end of the street where you can connect with the paved trail on the left. You will wind along a natural buffer of trees and grass between residential and commercial areas. At Caroline Street, you can return the way you came.
Replica 1800’s street lamps illuminate portions of the trail after dark.
