Andrew Jackson State Park combines history, art and community activities into a setting that has made it one of the S.C. State Park Service’s most popular attractions. The Crawford Trail is an easy-to-follow, dirt trail that will guide you through a wooded area of the park.
You will begin this sloping, woodland path at the trailhead to the right of the Meeting House. This easy-to-follow, dirt trail will guide you through a mixed oak, cedar, and pine forest in an undeveloped area of the park. In the quiet of this area you may hear the songs of many birds, or encounter deer, rabbits, snakes, and other wildlife. During your hike you will cross a road twice, and the second time you will need to go left for approximately 150 feet to reconnect to the trail.
Remember to wear insect repellent in warm weather. Pets must be kept on leashes. Restrooms, water, and picnic shelters are available near the museum and camping areas. The Garden of the Waxhaws Trail is also located near the camping areas—an occasionally steep, loop trail that provides fishing access and scenic views of the 18-acre lake.
