Lake Conestee Nature Park consists of approximately 400 acres of beautiful natural habitat on the Reedy River just 6 miles south of downtown Greenville. There are 6 miles of natural trails, 6 miles of paved trails and 4,000 feet of boardwalks. The terrain is a mix of  hardwood and evergreen forests, wetlands, fields, and three miles along the Reedy River. A southern section of the Swamp Rabbit Trail is part of the trail system.

This excellent trail map has information on the numerous paved and natural trails, with suggestions for several loops of varying terrain and length. For the longest and easiest to follow route, take the paved Swamp Rabbit Trail for up to 4.1 miles. The southern end is at the Spanco Trailhead (entrance S1), and runs north through Breazeale Farm. There are mile markers every 1/10th mile!
