(Anne Springs Close Greenway)
If the Anne Springs Close Greenway has a visual centerpiece, it’s
probably the Lake Haigler Nature Trail. This enjoyably easy, 1.3-mile
loop starts at the Nature Center and features protected wetlands, a
bat house, and an excellent array of wildlife and wildflowers. Before
you start, be sure to pick up the interpretive brochure for this trail
at the Nature Center. Dedicated as a preserve by the Close family, the
Greenway is a scenic, natural buffer between Fort Mill and the
sprawling Charlotte metropolitan area to the north. Its mildly hilly
terrain offers many views of mixed hardwood and other flora common in
this part of the state. The 2,300-acre plot also contains an
additional 25 miles of interconnecting hiking, biking, and mountain
Free to members of the Greenway; $2 per person for non-members.
From Exit 85 on Interstate 77 north of Rock Hill, drive southeast on
SC 160 toward Fort Mill. Drive .8 mile and turn left (north) onto the
US 21 Bypass. The main entrance is 1.5 miles ahead on the right
(east). The Lake Haigler Nature Trail begins at the parking lot for
the Nature Center.
Open daily from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Camping is allowed at the Greenway with reservations.
