    Go to Waccamaw Trail Blazers - Ride, Build, Advocate, Promote and Educate others about Mountain Biking in Myrtle Beach to get information on the local trails.

    In early February I was in the area and I rode 2 of the area's trails. First I went to the trail behind Coastal Carolina University. There was actually a nice short stretch of singletrack that I rode in both directions to make the ride into several miles. Nice coastal forest with some live oak and spanish moss (personal favorite).

    Next, I went to the dog & run park. Lower your expectations and remember - it's the beach. The trail builders have gone to great lengths to make the best of the terrain and small overall area. Lots of zig-zagging, super steep short hills and drops on sandy loamy terrain. Nothing scenic. It's not a riding destination but a mildly entertaining diversion.

    Why would anyone want to waste their time in Myrtle Beach riding a bike, when you can play endless rounds of goofy golf, shop in thousands of outlet stores, fight traffic on Hwy 17, and wait in line for hours for a seafood buffet? Not to mention getting to see washed-up former country music stars and Elvis impersonators. It's a regular paradise on earth.

    This trail looks pretty nice, good way to minimize the effect of excessive fried oyster and beer consumption.

    Those two videos must be of the new spot they have been working on near the YMCA in Myrtle Beach. Think it's called A-10 or the Hulk? Maybe both? It runs along the Intracoastal waterway, so that must be it. A friend of mine down in NMB has been telling me to come down and check it out. I think it's about 6 miles or so.

    There's a good group of dedicated riders down there. Get in touch if you are looking for someone to ride with down there. They are always up for a ride.

    Correction...A-10 is near Market Commons in south Myrtle Beach. The Hulk is near the YMCA.

    The Hulk, officially the Horry County Bike Run Park. 6+ miles of trail with some hills including a 30 footer. Check the above link for Waccamaw Trail Blazers for more info. This trail hosted one of the CCORS races. I ride there virtually every weekend and it is challenging, especially for this area.
