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.
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 rode this trail on my Haro hybrid and loved it. Well maintained trail with enough curves to make it fun with a scenic ride through the trees. I was not comfortable with the bike path to Murrells inlet with cars too close for my liking. Butbthebtrails and beach at Huntington State beach are great
I ride this and then some on Dec 19, 2015. Rode my road bike, which want the best choice. Most people were riding rented beach cruisers, and I should have used my mountain bike, which I was also toting around the country with me.The trail takes you alongside Hwy-17 weaving through the woods bordering Huntington Beach Park. Once up in Murrells Inlet, there are a number of other options to extend the ride. I will warn, however, that both Burgess Rd (Hwy-707) and Hwy-17 are a bit sketchy if you are uncomfortable riding in fast traffic.Two causeways can take you out to the island property, which is four miles end-to-end, for another extension. must of the ride along Kings River offers a bike path.Overall nice and easy, but many roots on the bike paths detracted from my road-bike adventure.
