Old Santee Canal State Historic Site Professional Review and Guide
"A pleasant walk along the shores of Biggin Creek and the Old Santee Canal where you can enjoy steep limestone bluffs overlooking swamps and a blackwater stream. The trees in the park typify the swampland of the Coastal Plain.
Giant baldcypress is the king, but it is attended by quite a court, including sweet gum, laurel oak, live oak, red maple, dogwood, and magnolia. The stars of the bird set are the ospreys perched high in their nests, but they have plenty of company, including red-winged blackbirds and red-shouldered hawks. Alligators lazily police the waterways, in the company of a variety of frogs and turtles, and white-tailed deer and wild turkeys roam the woodlands."
