Read all about the proposed bike trails coming to Easley.
A bicycle-friendly community is a community that feels safe, convenient and pleasant for all ages and abilities to ride a bicycle. The City of Easley is exploring and implementing ways to make Easley South Carolina that safe place to travel by bicycle, and also safe for pedestrian travel for the health benefits that walking and cycling offers to its citizens, as well as promoting energy conservation.
The City of Easley recognizes that bicycling and walking are an important part of daily transportation for residents, commuters, and visitors to the city. This Plan is for all residents who desire to improve their level of daily physical activity by bicycling or walking to school, work, and other local destinations; or by going for a walk or bicycle ride to the City’s parks, the library, or downtown.
About Easley, SC

Easley is 10.6 square miles in area with a population of approximately 20,000 residents (2007 US Census estimate) – a 13 percent increase over the 2000 Census figure of 17,754. Local estimates are that the population of Pickens County could increase by 30 percent by 2025.

The City is located midway between the major metropolitan areas of Charlotte, North Carolina to the northeast and Atlanta, Georgia to the southwest, both of which are easily accessible via nearby Interstate 85. Surrounded by rolling mountains and several picturesque lakes, Easley’s location provides residents with a number of outdoor recreation opportunities.
