GOOSE CREEK, SC -

Hiker/Biker trails are one of the things folks who live in Goose Creek love about the area. They seem to be everywhere.

Back in 1986, Goose Creek City Council came up with a hiker/biker master plan, to run trails throughout the city.

You can see the fruits of that labor. There are now 20 miles of private and 8 miles of public trails in the city

The total cost of the projects is about $1.7million dollars. However, the city obtained federal enhancements funds and Berkeley County c-funds from the gas tax to pay for the trails.

Deloris Orange enjoys walking the trails behind city hall, "It's open and I enjoy the ducks and the geese and the people, and it's refreshing."

2014 is the next round of funding. The city is hoping to connect the Wannamaker North Bike Trail in Wannamaker Park with the existing trails in the Pineview subdivision.

Eventually, the city wants to connect every part of the city together with the trails.
