Saltwater Paddling Trail -
Socastee to Little River, the Intracoastal Waterway
This portion of the trail follows a 30-mile canal created in 1936 by the US Army Corps of Engineers for the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway. Here the paddling trail generally parallels the popular tourist area of the Grand Strand, which encompasses Myrtle Beach, a dozen other beach communities, plus Myrtle Beach State Park. The Governor's Lighthouse and Vereen Memorial Gardens Park are adjacent to the trail at the Town of Little River.
