Can't beat this hike along the Saluda River. One the few urban white water rivers in America. You also get to pass under the historic Gervais Street Bridge. Some prety good restaurants a short walk off the path.

The riverwalk trail follows the West Columbia side of the Congaree river. It offers a relaxing easy walk for all ages & dogs!! If you get the chance to cross the bridge and park in the parking lot on the Gervais/Columbia side at sunset you can catch a breathtaking sight. Especially if it's after a good rain.

The Riverwalk is a great place to go to enjoy nature. A very serene place to be. The environment is peaceful and you can experience nature at its best. There are excellent views along The Riverwalk. Exercising is an enjoyable experience as you take in the great views.

I live on the Congaree River and the West Columbia Riverwalk meanders right next to my backyard. It is a great place for families, couples, friends, or pets to get out into nature without going too far from Columbia's other great amenities. Walking, riding, or rolling down the trail any day of the week and you are likely to see... More

The Riverwalk is a nice place to go for a walk or run and enjoy nature and lovely views of the river. There are places to sit along the way.

I have lived in West Columbia for over a year and just went to the west Columbia access for the first time with my family. It is a beautiful walk down to the river and there are nice picnic tables to enjoy a meal. The walk is still closed just downstream of the Moffatt St. access, but even just the... More

Another hat I wear is that of a wedding officiate. Initially, I chose this spot because it was close to my work, and it was free. As I walked down the path towards the river, I could not believe how beautiful it was!! The scenery is breath taking. So, I continued to tell various clients about this option and they... More

When we set our GPS to drive to this park, it landed us to a persons residence. )Even after checking 3 times.) The park had no entrance, no walkway entrance from street, no view of park from street, and no where to park to find the park. We drove 35 minutes round trip to be disappointed with our find. "...

Was in Columbia Visiting Family and we decided we would take my 8 year old niece to the Riverwalk. First we needed a restroom as soon as we got there and you have to walk a mile or more before you find the restroom after sitting in Columbia traffic. The little old school house was locked up and a maintenance... More
