Review

Pitt Street is the backbone of the old city in Mount Pleasant, a quaint neighborhood that follows the banks of the Cooper River. The Pitt Street bridge once connected the old city to Sullivans Island, but nowadays it serves as a park and fishing pier with no vehicle access allowed. This park is very secluded and is an excellent jogging, cycling, fishing, and even paddling destination. As the vehicle right of way tapers into the parking area, the footpath comes into view and takes you along the former connector bridge with the salt marsh on your left and the Atlantic on your right. Towards the beginning of the path there is a marsh access point perfect for launching your kayak or SUP board. The last 50 yards of the walking path is a fishing pier where if you do not have any luck catching fish, rest assured a few turkey necks in a wire trap will yield enough blue crabs to feed the neighborhood. Go to the Pitt Street bridge for a quick run after work, or spend all day in the grassy areas and take in the sights and sounds of the coast.
