Trail to the north is mostly park roads and sidewalks, very poorly marked. Southern trails are nice. Price is up to $8 per adult, but also good for Huntington State Park.

Worth the hike. Not too many people (Sunday in December with warm weather). The Yaupon trail was the wettest, but got by with sneakers. Lots of squirrels who weren’t too shy. Well maintained. People don’t really say hi to each other, though. A little surprising. Overall, it’s a good trail for walking.

Nice trail, easy walk. The Youpon trail was flooded / impassable so we turned back, but still a nice trail overall.

The trails were nice, short trails. Unfortunately, at times it was difficult to socially distance knowing someone ahead had a horrible cough. I couldn't see who, only heard it!! Fortunately, I had my mask and tried to stay back. After a detour to the pond, I lost them and enjoyed a quiet peaceful walk.

Bird watchingGreat!

It was a nice trail for a change of scenery. Instead of taking the out-and-back walk, I parked at the end of the Yaupon Trail and followed the trails all the way to the other end of the State Park and walked back to the parking lot by way of the beach. It was a very easy walk. Definitely bring the bug spray and beware of copperheads (I watched a small one cross the trail in front of me at one point). Overall a lovely and low-impact beach hike. I even found several starfish washed up on the shore as I walk down the coastline.

This park is another hidden gem in Myrtle Beach! The running trails are ok but not like the Horry County run park.

Myrtle Beach State Parks trails are a beautiful easy walk. Informative signs along the way, including benches to rest upon.
