Join Us and Share Your Vision for the Saluda Grade Trail

The best version of the Saluda Grade Trail is one that includes your input! We want to know your hopes and dreams for the trail. We also want to know your concerns so we can understand and address potential problems.

You are invited to a public meeting in Inman, SC on Oct. 17, 2023 to share your input, questions and concerns about the proposed trail. The proposed Saluda Grade Trail is still in very early stages and there are still a lot of questions to explore.

These meetings will be held drop-in style, so come on your schedule — no need to stay the entire time. You can circulate through various stations, where you’ll have opportunities to learn about the trail and give input on your vision, goals, and concerns.

Background on the Saluda Grade Trail

The Saluda Grade Trail is a proposed 31-mile rail trail that would follow the route of the historic Saluda Grade rail line. Along the way, it would run through Campobello, Inman, Landrum, Tryon, Saluda, and Zirconia. It would be a linear park where people of all ages can walk, run, bike, and play. The trail would be accessible to people of all abilities. In addition to recreation, it would improve transportation options, so people can get around safely without driving. The Saluda Grade Trail is being spearheaded by a coalition of nonprofits in NC and SC — Conserving Carolina; PAL: Play, Advocate, Live Well; and Upstate Forever.

We see potential for the Saluda Grade as both a destination rail trail and a treasured asset for local communities. We believe that the trail could grow our local economies, expand opportunities for outdoor recreation, and improve people’s health. Now we want to know what you think.
