Current Progress

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 many trails of Myrtle Beach — the first East Coast Greenway city to complete all of its off-road trail!

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 over the Cooper River leads travelers to Charleston’s West Ashley Greenway. 

In Beaufort, the beautiful Spanish Moss Trail offers over ten miles of scenic views and Southern hospitality. A paved greenway along SC 170 provides a welcome break from on-road segments between Port Royal and Savannah.

SAVE THE DATE:  The South Carolina East Coast Greenway Committee will meet in Myrtle Beach on Monday, July 29, 10 am to noon.  For more information, write to Brent Buice.
