Three nature trails are located on Santee State Park. The one-mile Limestone Nature Trail, the one-mile Oak Pinolly Nature Trail and the half mile Sinkhole Pond Nature Trail. The Oak Pinolly Nature Trail is basically an out-and-back path.
Starting from behind picnic shelter one, 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. Two other nature trails are located within Santee State Park—the one-mile Limestone Nature Trail and the half-mile Sinkhole Pond Nature Trail.
