Welcome to the East Coast Greenway in South Carolina
In South Carolina, the ECG route 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.
Of the 270-mile route through South Carolina, 15% is complete on greenway trails, and another 20% is in development. The ECGA is working closely with agencies, municipalities, and organizations throughout the state to get trail on the ground and find solutions to help progress accelerate.

The ECG Trip Planner allows you to generate customized point-to-point cue sheets for your ECG trip, with accompanying maps and elevation profiles, or to export your route as a GPX file to load onto your Garmin or other GPS device. The ECG smartphone app (available for both iPhones and Android) makes on-the-route navigation easy.
