Forgot to mention the great lunch we had at the Marina restaurant. Food was delicious and service was great
Very pleasant ride. Nice wide path, clean neighborhood ride. We came upon a turn off that went along the water. Shaded along the route.
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.
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!
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
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.
Feb 2023-No observation of any maintenance on the tree roots. Very hard ride- especially on a road bike. Skip the northern section altogether.
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
Northern portion from Pawleys Island to Litchfield trail has MANY tree roots that have made the trail difficult in certain areas.
Don't go out of your way. This trail is not for anyone trying to enjoy a true bike trail experience. The asphalt paved trail is extremely and unnecessarily twisty with tarred over root bumps everywhere. The US 17 traffic noise is overwhelming. Other reviews provide additional comments on these and additional shortcomings. However, if you find yourself nearby,do drop in and just pay the fee to enter Huntington Beach State Park. Enjoy this wonderful park. Park near Atalya. Ride your bikes on the paved roads within the park and enjoy the marsh and dunes. Head out on the road from Atalya towards Brookgreen Gardens (a must). When it ends, just take the park service road north towards the main gate, exit the park, and then go as far north & or south on the Waccamaw Neck trail as you find enjoyable. the trail ends about a mile or so to the north, Going south, we turned around after 3 or so miles when the urban interface began. Return to the park and enjoy it some more if you have the time.
