Swamp Fox Passage (Palmetto Trail)

Hiking & Mountain Bike Trail Only

May, 2021 by normanbowers

This is a hiking and mountain bike trail. Not suitable for kids and novice bike riders.
Obstacles are tree roots and mudholes. In wet weather the mudholes are world class.

Grissom Parkway Trail

Busy City Path

April, 2021 by ddjaquet

We rode the entire length of this path (more of a wide sidewalk) along Grissom Parkway. The north section between 48th Ave and route 510 is pretty busy with many roads, intersections, and business driveways to maneuver. From route 510 south to the Harrelson Trail is nice and not as congested. The Perrin's Path extension to the north, from 48th Ave is nice and quiet, being a more traditional paved dedicated bike path, but not very long. The Harrelson Trail connection on the South end is a good way to adds miles to your ride. We appreciate the availability of this option, but not the easiest ride you'll find. You really need to be alert for cars.

Harrelson Trail

Pleasant Ride

April, 2021 by ddjaquet

This trail is paved and wide. Some traffic to deal with, but not bad. We rode the eastern section between Grissom Parkway and Kings Highway as an extension of our ride on the Grissom Parkway Trail. An interesting ride along the airport on the South side and the golf course on the North side.

Pleasant Ride

April, 2021 by ddjaquet

Just a note to affirm that previous reviews are still valid. The ride thru the forest part was very pleasant. Parked at Morse Park (maybe?), at a boat launch site; a little unclear to me. The first part of the north end runs along business route 17 until you reach the woods part. At one point, had to turn around and go back because the path went right and we went left. Had lunch in Litchfield and then returned. Very nice trip for the casual rider.

My son’s and I walked this trail Oct 1-3 it was wet and muddy. Great time for bonding. Prepare for wet shoes. Looks like they are preparing to do several upgrades.

Great trail!

July, 2020 by themessengerimage

Really nice shaded trail and very well maintained. I enjoyed it and even say the famous gator on my way. The only downfall on this trail is that I don't like how it breaks off and picks up. I am from out of state so it was hard to figure out where it picks up in some places.

Pretty good ride, be careful of tree roots

May, 2020 by mrobin9980

A good ride for families, an okay ride for a vigorous workout. The twists and turns , along with tree roots of the north end going into Murrells Inlet make it slow going if your up for a workout. It’s great to be off the road though, and for families it’s a lot of fun. A few bridges to cross and it ends up at the marsh for a good finish.

Rode the north end of the trail today.

October, 2018 by dkmelchior_tl

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.

Really good start to trail system

June, 2018 by alanbrenner

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.

Bumpy But Nice

June, 2018 by joejonbryant

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.

Fun Trail

September, 2017 by williamrwiggins

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!
