Tucked away within Santee State Park, this easy, one-mile loop trail
starts at a pavilion and guides you through a heavily
wooded area near the swimming area. The thick forest cover and terrain
of this scenic, twisting trail may make you feel like you're in the
mountains. Follow the white blazes and take time to enjoy the
wildflowers, buckeye, papaw, and wildlife including deer, rabbits, and
snakes. During the warm months, insect repellant is a must.
From Exit 98 on Interstate 95 at Santee, drive northwest on SC 6 for
one mile. Turn right onto Orangeburg County S-38-105. At the stop sign,
turn right onto Cleveland Road, which will take you to a fee station.
Once past the fee station, the road splits; take the left fork and go
to the Day-Use Area. The trailhead is on the right near the pavilion
and swimming area.
