Biking on Hilton Head

Biking on Hilton HeadWhile the Hilton Head Island only measures about 12 miles long by 5 miles wide visitors can enjoy nearly 60 miles of public bike pathways and nature trails accessible to all. In addition, there are close to 50 miles of paths behind the gates of private communities like Shipyard, Sea Pines, and Palmetto Dunes.

The flat terrain and the bike path system make it very easy to ride on the bike paths, however many visitors find the best place to pedal is on the beach. Enjoy a bike ride on the hard packed sand near the water line at low tide. It is great fun and it offers a spectacular view. You might even see some dolphins! There are miles of beautiful bike paths open to all waiting for you to explore.
