Huntington Beach Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Huntington Beach State Park is named after the American sculptor Anna Hyatt Huntington who used the area as a private beach and studio during the winter months. She and her husband Archer lived in a white Moorish-styled mansion on the south end of the beach and called the site Atalaya.

It is now open to the public and is registered as a National Historic Landmark. The flat, easy trail is great for older and smaller dogs, and hikers have the option of cutting 2.6 miles off the route by eliminating the side hike to the Murrells Inlet jetty."

We didn't get to do the full hike as the weather was very unpredictable and stormy while we were there, but we did get to bike down the beach to the jettee. It was definitely worth the trip. Walking out to the end of the jettee with the wind blowing the rain in our faces and the surf pounding the rocks was an experience I won't soon forget!

Fun trail, but map not exact, as there is no access to the dunes anymore.We need to return by the beach. The trip to the jetee is great.

The trail is not well marked; however, it was enjoyable finding parts of the trail in the forested area near the beach and walking on the beach for the unclear areas.

The boardwalk over the salt marsh was damaged by a wind storm in February, and is currently closed. The nature trail would be a nice walk if you remember insect repellent. I did not and had to turn back a half mile in. My kids loved the crabs on the beach, and we saw a small aligator on the jetty. Several aligators were also visible from the road across the salt marsh as you enter.
