CCU to host Horry County Trail Summit May 11

May 4, 2022

The Coastal Carolina University Bicycle Advisory Council will host the Horry County Trail Summit on Wednesday, May 11, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Lib Jackson Student Union. The event will explore projects whose progress could foster sustainable development in Horry County with a proposed rail trail and the East Coast Greenway.

The summit’s goal is to identify trail needs, implementation challenges, and pre-construction requirements that will lead to shovel-ready trail projects. The gathering will include city municipal recreation planners, college and university representatives, and state and regional multi-modal transportation planners.

The summit will also feature activities and booth exhibits, panel presentations, and breakout sessions. The summit will conclude with an optional bike ride to downtown Conway.
