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.
A gap along the busy Ocean Highway that plagued trail users for years was finally filled-in, providing an off-road connection along a utility corridor between Trace Drive and Boyle Drive and created a much more seamless experience.
Trail users should take care on the portion of the path along Willbrook Boulevard, as golf carts from the neighboring clubs are permitted to use the trail here.
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 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).
