The Timmerman Trail portion of the Cayce Riverwalk is 3.5 miles of paved hiking trail that runs through the woods in the outskirts of Cayce, near the intersection of I-77 and 12th Street Extension, just across from Dominion Energy headquarters. It begins just west of the 12th Street Extension, then runs under the road and continues eastward. At several points along the way, there are beautiful views of the Congaree Creek and you may see snakes, alligators, and other wildlife.
Timmerman Trail can be accessed from two trailheads. One is off of 12th Street Extension at Otarre Parkway, where there is a small, free parking lot for public use. The other trailhead starts just east of the Cayce Tennis and Fitness Center at the 12,000 Year History Trailhead where street parking and Cayce Tennis and Fitness Center parking are free.
Our most popular park is the Cayce Riverwalk Park, featuring Timmerman Trail, which is part of the 3 Rivers Greenway. The Riverwalk stretches for nearly 8 miles along the river. It offers a scenic place to walk, run, picnic, and fish, with the added convenience of lighted pathways and 24 hour security. The Riverwalk Park is located at 201 Naples Ave.
The Cayce Riverwalk is the ultimate “daycation” spot, easily accessible from anywhere in the Midlands of South Carolina. Spanning 12 miles combined, it overlooks the beautiful Congaree River, right across from the capital city of Columbia, S.C., and it is a popular destination for walking, jogging, bicycling, bird-watching, picnicking and taking in the natural beauty of the riverfront.
Its bridges, boardwalks, overlooks and lighted, central path accommodate all levels of physical abilities. Residents and visitors enjoy free parking and lighted, paved paths through the shaded, riverine forest, studded with benches, picnic tables and public art by local artisans along with wide, wooden boardwalks with prime water views.
