We rode the north end of the trail this morning and were impressed. There is no public parking on the north end but we parked in a local business several blocks away with out issue. The trail is a very twisty paved trail through the dense woods. Who ever created this trail did their best to avoid cutting as many large trees as possible. It was a very pleasant ride. As you progress, the trail is diverted into a quiet neighborhood with very little traffic. A very nice experience. Be aware that there are several driveways, and business parking lots that need to be traversed which could be an issue if you are traveling with small children.
Yesterday we rode the trail from Murrell's Inlet to Litchfield and today from Litchfield to Pawley's Island. I gave it five stars because I am supportive of the effort to continue to build the trail to Georgetown. It's more of a cruising path at present, with pedestrians and road crossings. The most hazardous part of the trail is at the road crossings - drivers are looking back to their left and often do not see bikes. I'm used to riding mountain trails and roads, so I enjoy cruising and getting in some relaxing rides. I look forward to seeing the bikeway continue to improve and will support the effort.
Lots of root intrusion under the asphalt path makes for a pretty bumpy ride, especially on either side of Huntington Beach State Park, but this is a nice trail overall. The traffic on Highway 17 is ever present in terms of noise, but you are typically a good ways into the woods where you can forget it is there with only occasional instances of being exposed to it. There are a few stretches where you have to go through a neighborhood and a good stretch where you are right on the highway. I doubt I will ride it again, though, as I need a bit more padding in the seat to handle all of the bumps from the roots. Unfortunate, because I really had my hopes up! If you have time be sure to ride in the state park. Easy, flat, and smooth roads with great scenery, easy beach access, and lots of things to do. If possible ride before Memorial Day and after Labor Day to avoid the seasonal crowds.
Nice ride. Wide path. Lots of bikes out.
I am a relative newbie to trail riding. My new Giant ATX did a great job pulling me over the bumps and even through the deep standing water. Next time, we will go during low tide and not after a big rain. Bring bug spray!!! All-in-All we have fun!
It's great ¿¿¿¿
We have rode along Huntington Park trails often and enjoy them. We decided to take the Martin Luther King road trail which was a great ride. But When we rode down Waverly Road, we were very disappointed. The sidewalks were almost all broken and the traffic was too heavy to ride in the street. When we reached 17, we could not decide which was worse, riding all the way back the way we came or riding down 17 back to Litchfield in the heat. Either way was bad!!! We believe the bike trails should have "bike " trails or not be designated as a bike trail.
I have run most of the Swamp Fox and love it, but would probably make this #1 in the CHARLESTON area. It is unbelievably beautiful along the marshes and intracoastal. And it even has a section of great switchbacks and elevation gains. And depending on where you start, one of the best things about it is a great turnaround at Buck Hall with picnic tables, water and rest rooms.
The tide was mostly out this day and it hadn't rained in 4-5 days. I could see the possibility of wet areas if it has been raining a lot or really high tides. But, there are usually boards or reinforced walkways in areas where it might be wet. You should be fine near low tide (but obviously more beautiful with tides in!).
Minimal roots. Could see where bikers might have to walk some areas for one reason or another, but few. No problem for runners or hikers.
Highly recommend! This trail is what the LOWCOUNTRY is all about!!!
My husband and I started to ride this trail recently, but we gave up about a half-mile in because it was too bumpy and rough for our bikes. The surroundings are lovely, but I don't recommend riding this trail unless you have thick tires and a full suspension mountain bike.
Ran out and back on this 6 mile section of Swamp Fox / Palmetto Trail today. Trail was in great shape and even with a hard rain a few days ago it was 95% dry. Some hard root packed areas but mostly running on a bed of pine needles. Great way to end 2016! Highly recommend!
Awendaw Passage trail under water and impassable from Swamp Fox trailhead; would prefer it closed in these conditions to prevent further trail breakdown. Swamp Fox passage from Swamp Fox trailhead was for the most part dry and passable through Willow Hall Rd
