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
1.0-mile, including a loop.
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.
