The best trail in the Myrtle Beach area: challenging, twisty singletrack with short, steep climbs.

Features -none-


The Horry County Bike and Run Park (aka The Hulk) is almost all singletrack with a couple of straight doubletrack sections on the sides. Several sections in the lower parts have had poor drainage in the past. Most of these areas have been drained by ditches cut by volunteers, or relieved by bridges. Still, you should give the trail a day or so following a good rain.

On the faces of the steepest climbs, volunteers have shored up loose soil with mats or old carpeting. Sounds hokey, but it works well and prevents erosion. You'll see lots of evidence of just how hard local mountain bikers and trail runners have worked to maintain the continuity of this trail.

The pump track is the newest section. It's a couple hundred yards of jumps, tabletops and berms. You can ride it separately, or make it a part of your lap as it detours off the regular loop.

You can park right at the trailhead as shown on the map, but that involves driving out International Blvd and taking a left onto River Oaks Blvd, and then another left onto Frontage Rd B-2 just after going under the Hwy 31 bridge. A lot of locals just bike across the Grissom Parkway bridge bike path either from the YMCA parking area or their homes.


A surprisingly great trail for the area. CCORS races are held here annually. The course is competitive and challenging with several short steep climbs and technical drops mixed with twisty, flowing singletrack. Rain can be a problem as the area around the biggest climb (i.e. "The Hulk" ) can flood.

This area can be bypassed in that event. The Myrtle Beach Triathlon Club used to maintain the trail and keep it in great condition. It is currently maintained by Cape Fear Sorba. There have been recent additions including a pump track with jumps and tabletops. So, remember to pack your mountain bike for your next beach vacation in Myrtle Beach, you'll not be disappointed.

Trail is open after Florence. A lot of local riders cut fallen trees, raked and blew the trail. No major damage.Ride with caution these first few days

I am from the foothills of NC and Enduro is the name of the game for me. But this trail is one of my favorites. I try to come out to this trail once a year if possible just because it is such a well maintained flow trail. Every time I have come, there has been a new addition to the trail, the biggest being a huge step-down drop about halfway down the trail. All in all this trail is easy though with some advanced lines for more experienced riders and a way to bypass for beginners. I have ridden this trail on my 160mm Enduro, which is not at all neccessary, but if its all you got come ride anyway. Oh, and Hardtails are not dead by the way, because if there was a trail made for hardtails, this is the one. The smoothness of the trail, with minimal roots and rocks, things that I like about the mountains, actually makes it that much more enjoyable to ride because it doesn't hinder your speed on the flat, sprint sections. So, beginners and experts alike, do yourself a favor and come out to this trail and break out the ol' hardtail for maximum flow and fun. Aug 25, 2018

Hey there folks! My husband and I have run the Horry County trails, but would love to MTB. We are flying in to visit my parents for a few days. Do you know where we might be able to rent mountainbikes for the coming weekend? Apr 29, 2019
