Grissom Parkway Trail Description

The Grissom Parkway Trail is a designated multipurpose path in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The Parkway was named in honor of Bob Grissom, three-time mayor of Myrtle Beach who passed away in 1998. The paved trail mostly parallels the parkway, providing a connection for walkers,  bikers and other non-motorized travelers to various neighborhood, business centers, schools and open spaces. The Grissom Parkway trail ends just after 48th Avenue. Perrin’s Path becomes the new name of the greenway, stretching another 1.2 miles along the Parkway and Frontage Road up to 62nd Avenue. There is also a multiuse path along Harrelson Boulevard.

The Grissom Parkway Trail is part of the 3000-mile East Coast Greenway system. 

Parking and Trail Access

While there is no designated trailhead, there is plenty of parking at any of the commercial areas along the Parkway. 

Grissom Parkway Trail Reviews

Busy City Path

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.

Nice ride. Wide path. Lots of bikes out.
