Sans Souci is ideally located to take advantage of Greenville’s growing network of trails and greenways.
There are three possible connection points in the community which are compatible with the Greenville County Recreation District’s Comprehensive Greenways Plan. A new spur trail in the north sector would connect Sans Souci to the north towards Travelers Rest, while in the south, another would create connectivity towards downtown Greenville. The most impactful opportunity for the residents of Sans Souci, however, exists toward the center of the community, and would enhance a path that is already being utilized to access the Swamp Rabbit Trail south of the trail’s intersection with Highway 253. The route would connect the Swamp Rabbit Trail with the potential revitalization efforts proposed for the Old Buncombe Village Center.
The paved trail spur project is on hold until the property owners decide what their plans are for the property. Because they may sell or donate the 40+ acres of land along the GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail, there is potential to have much greater benefit simply by being patient. For now residents can access the GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail via Highways 183 and 253, or the driveway behind Capsco on Old Bleachery Road. Please be mindful that these points pose some safety concerns, so please use caution and walk your bike where appropriate.
