Grande Dunes Announces New Waterway Trail Along the Intracoastal Waterway

June 4th, 2019

New Walking Trail is for the Myrtle Beach Community

Myrtle Beach, SC – June 4, 2019 — Grande Dunes is excited to announce the opening of Grande Dunes Waterway Trail along the Intracoastal Waterway. The Waterway Trailhead is located on Marina Parkway near the Grissom Parkway overpass across from the rear exit of the Claire Chapin Epps YMCA and connects to the Marina Parkway multi-use trail. The Waterway Trail is open to the public from sunrise to sunset.

Phase I is the completed first half mile of a planned two-mile multi-use trail. The trail will ultimately end at The Marina at Grande Dunes and tie into the pedestrian pathways, which leads back to the Marina Parkway multi-use trail and to the sidewalks on Grande Dunes Boulevard. Motorized vehicles are prohibited.

The 10-foot wide trail is envisioned to accommodate exercise enthusiasts as well as those who want to take a casual stroll along the water and observe the activity on the Waterway and the wildlife. Shade structures with benches and distance markers are placed every fourth of a mile for the active guests who would like to record their time and distance. Dogs are welcome and dog walkers will enjoy the convenience of the water station created just for dogs.

“We are excited to bring our concept to reality and cannot be happier with the feel and overall look of the trail,” says Margaret LaCalle, President, Grande Dunes and Grande Dunes North. “The trail will offer residents of the community an opportunity to stroll, walk their dogs or even jog; all in a safe pedestrian-friendly environment.  Walking along the trail, you’ll be able to see the beautiful waterway and the opportunity to take a break, sit and watch the boaters go by.  This is the first section of a two-mile trail and it will ultimately terminate at the Marina Park events lawn.  We are happy to share this wonderful walking trail with the City of Myrtle Beach and hope families enjoy this trail.”
