Santee State Park

Average Rating:    (2.71 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 7

You must keep looking to the left while on this wide trail to find the nice single track. It runs next to the lake with some descent little ups and downs. The trail is not well marked and you must walk for short distances on a sandy beach. There are many trails cut through the forest just finding them can be difficult. Lots of potential here.

Summary:
I ride this trail when I vist the family in O-burg. The fire road/ double track is fast and easy. The single track is also fast and fun, it's just not very well marked in some sections.

Recommended Route:
Start at the trail head and follow the loop clockwise starting with the fire road.

Summary:
Easily accessible trail from I-95 and I-26. If you are traveling to or from Charleston it is a great stop off. Trail is not technically difficult, so there are lot of opportunities to get speed. Not many climbs. The trail is primarily flat. Also, the trail is somewhat sandy. Overall, not a bad trail for a relaxing ride.

Recommended Route:
Signs are posted, however about halfway through they get a little sketchy so pay attention.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Sesqui State Park is another good interstate stop off, however I think that Santee is better overall riding.

Summary:
The park itself is beautiful. If you are visiting, check out the camping cabins and the story behind how the lakes were created. As for the trail? Ho-hum at best. The designated biking path is wide and grassy with no obstacles (bring your hybrid!) The hiking trails to the right and left are more fun, but I don't think you are supposed to ride them. (I was bored, what can I say?)
