Huntington Beach State Park offers a more secluded spot for a run, 15 miles south from the hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach. The park features ~2 miles of nature trails and boardwalks, passing over scenic grassy marsh. and through maritime forest of pines and oaks and pristine wetlands. Don’t miss Atalaya  and the historic Moorish-style winter home of Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington. For longer, we recommend the ~3 miles of of the Waccamaw Neck Bikeway, that passes through the park.

There’s also a lovely white sand beach here, which is also quite runnable, especially near the water and at low tide. From the State Park, it’s best to run north along the beach, for up to 3 miles to Murrells Inlet.  Note: Small admission fee required. Some of the trails might be soft sand
