Welcome to the East Coast Greenway in South Carolina
In South Carolina, the East Coast Greenway stays near the coast through the state’s low country, bringing travelers through Myrtle Beach, Georgetown, Charleston, and Beaufort to the Georgia border. Completed trails furthest north include the Barefoot Resort section of the North Myrtle Beach Trail, the Harrelson Boulevard Trail, and Grissom Parkway Trails in Myrtle Beach. Continuing south, three segments of the Waccamaw Neck Bikeway are coming together to offer safe travel through Georgetown County. The route continues on road to Mount Pleasant, where a separated bike/ped path on the Ravenel Bridge leads travelers to Charleston’s West Ashley Greenway.
The East Coast Greenway Alliance works closely with agencies, municipalities, and organizations throughout the state to get trail on the ground and find solutions to help progress accelerate. Current projects and priorities include:
- Identifying a route from Bluffton to Savannah
- Connecting greenway trails in Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach
- Exploring a rails-with-trails opportunity from the southern end of the West Ashley Greenway to Beaufort
