East Coast Greenway
The Town of Awendaw has constructed the first 2.3 mile phase of the planned 12-mile East Coast Greenway Trail, the Wappetaw Trail. This first phase of the off-road bicycle and pedestrian path includes a new trail along the northern side of the Awendaw Municipal Park and connects to improved existing trails in the Francis Marion National Forest. The Town also constructed a small parking area on Doar Road at the new trail head. Phase one ends at the existing connection to the Shell Mounds off Salt Pond Road also in the National Forest. Future phases will connect to other amenities such as the Seewee Visitor and Environmental Center. This trail is part of a much bigger trail system, the 3,000-mile East Coast Greenway that goes from Maine to Key West, Florida.
