Hub City Connector

When completed, the Hub City Connector will be a continuous 12-mile pathway of greenways, bicycle lanes, and safe, signed sidewalks through the city of Spartanburg. As of summer 2006, four sections of the connector are complete: School for the Deaf and Blind, Mary Black Rail Trail, Liberty Trail, and the USC Upstate Passage.

  Connecting Wofford College with the Heart Center at Spartanburg Regional Healthcares System is a beautiful concrete path through the Liberty Garden. A favorite with students and hospital workers, the trail follows a cascading brook for .6 mile.
The Palmetto Trail enters the southern end of the city of Spartanburg at the SC School for the Deaf and Blind. This .75 mile section is designed for the mobility impaired. Notice the Braille interpretive signs along the trail. In fall of 2007, construction will begin on the Palmetto Trail through Croft State Park that will link to the School for the Dear and Blind.   The Chinquapin Greenway, a spur of the Hub City Connector is 1.6 miles of interconnecting loop trails. The greenway is a collaborative effort among the Spartanburg Area Conservancy, PCF, and Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System. Located at the northern gateway into Spartanburg, the greenway is adjacent to the hospital’s new Hospice House, providing a setting of peace and tranquility for patients.
USC Upstate Passage is a 1.3 mile section through a forest on the banks of Lawson's Fork Creek
