Wonders' Way Description

There are 8 lanes of vehicular traffic on the Arthur Ravenel Bridge over the Cooper River. Thanks to a persistent citizen-led advocacy effort, walkers, joggers and cyclists can travel safely along the same bridge, along a dedicated path called Wonders' Way. The 12-foot wide paved path has separate lanes for hiking and biking. The slope as you ascend to the bridge might be a bit of a challenge, particularly if the wind is not in your favor. However, your reward comes at the top of the bridge, where users can expansive views of the vessels on the Cooper River, the Charleston peninsula and in the distance, Folly Beach. Benches and water fountains are provided at each end of the trail.

The trail is named for Garret Wonders, a cyclist who was killed in a bike-car collision. 

Parking and Trail Access

In Mount Pleasant, park at the Mt. Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park (99 Harry M. Hallman Jr Blvd).
