5th Avenue to Eagle Street


Phase 1 of the Mathis Ferry Trail is proposed from the Scanlonville Praise House Trail at 5th Avenue to the Eagle Street crossing. This 5,800 ft segment is proposed along the north side of Mathis Ferry Road and will be constructed primarily using concrete for a path width of 10ft to 12ft. To avoid grand oak trees, the design will utilize low rise boardwalk segments to avoid root systems which will help to maintain the health of these historic trees. Staff has been awarded Charleston County Greenbelt funds in the Spring of 2023 and is working with impacted property owners on acquiring necessary right-of-way or recreational easements.
