Cheraw is a beautiful small town in SC that has some great trails—which can be accessed from numerous parks within the town. Riverside Park offers the Tanyard Loop and Great Pee Dee Nature Trail with scenic views of the Pee Dee River and Arrowhead Park offers a great multi-use trail that connects to the residential area of Cheraw.
Until the connecting trail in the Greater Cheraw Trail System is completed, you can access finished trails from two separate parks.
From Arrowhead Park, follow the level, paved, hiking/biking, out-and-back trail with a loop around the playing fields at the park. You will parallel city streets through mixed commercial and residential areas. Watch for turning vehicles.
From Riverside Park, you can access two trails, the Great Pee Dee Nature Trail and the Tanyard loop. You can go either way on the Great Pee Dee Nature Trail. You can walk north to overlook the Pee Dee River, or south to Southside Park. You can also walk along the north side of Church Street, turn right and loop back, turn left and go north on the Tanyard Loop, which is two loops, one inside the other. The Tanyard Loop passes an over look on the Pee Dee River and then the two loops split. Go to the left and you will return to Riverside Park, go straight and you will cross a footbridge on Tanyard Creek. When you reach the junction with the Pee Dee Trail, turn left to return to Riverside Park.
Restrooms are located at Arrowhead Park and Riverside Park. Insect repellent is recommended in warm weather. Pets are permitted on a leash.
