Bikers on a trail around Hilton Head Island, South Carolina
You can get almost anywhere by bike on Hilton Head, thanks to the 56 miles of pathways that crisscross the island.

Biking on Hilton H​ead just got a little easier with the addition of another one-mile section of paved trail on the busy south end of the island. You now can travel along New Orleans Road from William Hilton Parkway to Pope Avenue all in the safety of a designated bike path.

The Town of Hilton Head Island also built sidewalks that can be used by bikers along Lagoon Road and Avocet Street near Coligny Plaza.

Many visitors ditch their cars for bikes once they arrive on the island. With 56 miles of trails, you can pedal almost anywhere on Hilton Head, from your favorite restaurant to shopping centers to parks and the beach.

And there’s more to come. Plans are in the works to build another 24 miles of trails over the next few years. First up is a path along Dunagan’s Alley from Arrow Road to Palmetto Bay Road.

Along with the public pathways are 58 miles of private trails located inside of residential communities, including Sea Pines, Palmetto Dunes, Hilton Head Plantation and Shipyard Village.

If you don’t want the hassle of lugging your own bikes to the island resort, you can still enjoy riding the trails. Just pick up what you need at one of the island’s many bike rental shops. Most offer a wide range of sizes, as well as bikes with baby seats and half-wheelers or trailers for towing small children. They’ll even deliver them to your condo or villa.

Now get pedaling!
