Hiking Trail
Oak Pinolly Nature

(Santee State Park)


Starting from the campground in Santee State Park, this is an easy to walk and easy to follow yellow blazed loop trail of one mile. In a nice touch, however, it maintains a remote feel despite crossing directly through the park’s most heavily used area. Basically an out-and-back trail, the Oak Pinolly Nature Trail has a small loop at the far end that’s a great area to spot deer. One point midway through the trail brims with switchcanes, ostrich ferns, and wild azaleas.

Length: 1 mile loop

Difficulty: Easy

Directions: 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, continue straight ahead to the fee station. Once past the fee station continue to the campground. The trailhead is at the playground area.

Camping: Call 1-866-345-PARK (7275) or go online at www.SouthCarolinaParks.com to make your reservations today!
