Very pleasant ride. Nice wide path, clean neighborhood ride. We came upon a turn off that went along the water. Shaded along the route.

Waccamaw Neck Bikeway

Enjoyable Ride

July, 2023 by hadley6609

We stayed in Murrell's Inlet for a week in late July, and brought the bikes hoping to be able to get some riding in. We were able to do a little bit of exploring the area, but this is not a super bike friendly community. Thus we spent most of our bike time on the Waccamaw Neck Bikeway. Actually, we did not know that was the name of the trail until we got home and looked it up on Trail Link. There is zero signage identifying this trail. We were under the impression that it begins/ends in Murrell's Inlet/northern end of Litchfield. We had no idea that there is an on-road section that goes (kind of) to Pawley's Island, as there is zero signage anywhere on the trail, other than "Stay to the Right". Too bad, we would have enjoyed the extra miles.
In the "different strokes for different folks" department, I can understand why some give this trail low marks for the root bumps, but our touring bikes handled them just fine. We liked the winding nature of the trail, and though it is about 50 feet off of busy Highway 17, one feels safe with the screen of trees. Stay on the trail; we encountered a copperhead snake and there are numerous huge golden orb spiders all around. We got up early enough to ride to Huntington State Park for sunrise three times, and this is highly recommended. As others have also pointed out, Brookgreen Gardens is also a Must See. Tickets are $22, but last for a week. We also returned to the gardens repeatedly, and each time saw something new.
I've deducted one star from my rating purely for the confusing lack of signage, but otherwise I would recommend this trail. Honestly, if you are in the area, you don't have other options for a few miles of car-free riding.

Lake Moultrie Passage (Palmetto Trail)

Biking Palmetto trail Lake Moultrie Passage

May, 2023 by sawbuck25

Wife and I live in Bonneau Beach, which is on east side of Lake Moultrie and this portion of the trail is where we ride our recumbent trikes. The southern end joins the Swampfox passage at a parking area just off highway 52 . From the parking area you cross 52 (be carefull) to begin and in about 1/2 mile you will be on the eastern dike of Lake Moultrie heading north to the town of Bonneau Beach. A better parking area is near Shortstay (military recreation area) at the end of Old Black Oak road. Here you can enter a pedestrian gate and takes you right up to the dike, no highway or railway to cross, If eligible, the Shortstay RV park is a great way to camp and enjoy the trail. Heading north , this portion of the dike is packed gravel and stone, and ends at the community of Bonneau Beach. There is a small parking area at this Black Oak RD access point. Evelyns Diner is great for breakfast and further down Black Oak Rd towards the lake is the Watermark restaurant, good food and drink. It's a 2 mile ride through the community to get to the next section of the eastern dike. The entrance and small parking clearing can be hard to find as it is tucked back off General Moultrie Rd and Martin drive (not marked). The dike is actually labeled as Pooshee Plantation Rd on Google Maps. This portion of the trail is our favorite and travels the dike along the lake with wetlands and chances to see wildlife are assured. It is a two track path made up of packed finer gravel. There is also a primitive camping area (no facilities) We like to end our ride and picnic at the Amos Lee Gourdine boat ramp and beach area. The total distance from Shortstay going north to the Gourdine boat ramp area is about 15 miles. The trail continues along side the rediversion canal, crossing over the canal, but soon becomes unrideable especially for our trikes. The portion that I have covered in this review is the only part of the trail that I have found bike ridable especially a recumbent trike.

Conway Riverwalk

great, very relaxing, quiet

April, 2023 by jesse.avignone

This place was great. I am always looking for some smaller trails to go on and this one was perfect. It is relaxing, quiet and clean! You can sit and watch the boats go by or have a chat with people doing some fishing. I highly recommend checking this place out!

Waccamaw Neck Bikeway

good ride

March, 2023 by 6qnny7r2c6

I work out on this trail daily and it is a good ride except for the Waverley road section. I have contacted the Greenway trail folks about its conditions but they said that Georgetown County was responsible for that section. So I sent a message to the county engineer and never got a response. Time to try again. Sections of that sidewalk are extremely dangerous and need repair

Awendaw Passage (Palmetto Trail)

tough ride

Roots, muddy and wet

Swamp Fox Passage (Palmetto Trail)

Work in progress.

March, 2023 by sawbuck25

Wife and I live nearby (Bonneau Beach) and occasionally hike this trail. Many improvements are either completed or in the works such as walking bridges etc. I would recommend this trail for hiking but it has a long way to go to make it bike friendly. For those that would like to cycle in this area, I would highly recommend the Lake Moultrie Passage (an adjacent section of the Palmetto trail which runs along Lake Moultrie.) Trailink does not list this section which is mostly gravel and much more suited to bicycling. In fact, we ride our recumbent trikes from Shortstay campground near Moncks Corner for 15 miles to the Re Diversion canal near Russelville Sc. All of this section is on the dike around the Lake except for a small area through the community of Bonneau Beach. In Bonneau Beach, on Black Oak road, are 3 restaurants and local market. The Lake Moultrie passage has some great scenery along with wildlife typical of wetlands. The Lake Moultrie passage can be accessed at the southern end off of Old Black Oak Rd near the Shortstay Navy recreation facility . There is also parking in Bonneau Beach across from the diner to access the northern gate of the East Dike. Further north near Russelville there is ample parking at the Amos Lee Gourdine boat ramp.

Grissom Parkway Trail

I rode this and adjoining trails/routes- kinda;No route signage anywhere!Most trails systems have route markers, or signage to be able to follow w/o checking maps. Missed turns & had to keep checking back on gps to get back on track.

Waccamaw Neck Bikeway

Feb 2023-No observation of any maintenance on the tree roots. Very hard ride- especially on a road bike. Skip the northern section altogether.

Marina Parkway Bike Path

great ride

November, 2022 by sommer

Beautiful and easily accessible from parking area across from marina. On our way back to the car took the detour on the beautiful side trail along the inner waterway next to the DelWeb community. Undulating hills by the waters edge. Trail dead ends so you must turn back
