Waccamaw Neck Bikeway Description

The Waccamaw Neck Bikeway is a developing off-road trail currently available in a few disconnected sections, which primarily parallel U.S. 17 (Ocean Highway) and Kings River Road. Bicyclists can travel on-road, following share-the-road signs, to complete the route from Murrells Inlet to Pawleys Island.

Along the way, travelers can access Huntington Beach State Park, a sprawling 2,500-acre natural oasis of maritime forest and pristine wetlands. Nearby Brookgreen Gardens, a sculpture garden and wildlife preserve, is also a worthwhile attraction to visit.

Future plans call for lengthening the bikeway to a total of 27 miles from the Horry/Georgetown county line to Waccamaw Neck. The trail is also part of the East Coast Greenway, a growing network of connected multi-use trails extending from Florida to Maine.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at Morse Park Landing in Murrells Inlet, as well as in Huntington Beach State Park (but note that there’s a nominal park admission fee).

Waccamaw Neck Bikeway Reviews

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.
