The paved Town Creek Park Segment of the Twelve Mile Creek Greenway runs along the outskirts of the Prescott neighborhood, connecting residents and visitors to the Town Creek Park, tennis courts and other amenities in the neighborhood. The Greenway will soon connect to the 3.5-mile Twelve Mile Creek Trail in Lancaster, SC, creating over 4 miles of walking and biking trails.


Mineral Springs Greenway is a great natural surface trail to take your four-legged friend (including horses!) out for a walk. The 1.7-mile out-and-back trail also has picnic areas and benches so that you can stop and enjoy the nature that surrounds you!MineralSprings. Amy Moore. 7.2 (29)
