The Limestone Nature Trail is one of three loop hikes for hikers and their dogs to enjoy in Santee State Park, one of the most popular state parks in South Carolina. This simple 0.8-mile hike, located in the southeastern corner of the park, is an offshoot of the longer and moderately difficult Bike/Hike Trail and begins opposite the entrance to the main picnic area, on the south side of Cleveland Road. From the parking area, hike counterclockwise, heading west around an arm of Lake Marion, then turn southeast and begin to loop back across a short, rickety bridge, only a short distance from the trailhead. The Limestone Nature Trail is easy and well suited for older or smaller dogs that enjoy a leisurely stroll through the wilderness. Keep your pet on a leash, however, since there are alligators in the Santee State Park—which means the pooch should also stay out of the water.
