Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Santee Bike/Hike Trail is one of three loop trails located in Santee State Park. This blue-blazed 7.5-mile route is shared between hikers and mountain bikers, although the wide and well-worn path allows plenty of room for both groups.

The Santee Bike/Hike Trail has spectacular views of Lake Marion to the east, and is relatively flat which makes it fairly easy despite being the longest trail in the park."

This trail is a premium South Carolina Low Country hiking trail. It is also one of my favorite Low Country hikes. I like to spend a whole day on the 7.5 mile loop, and I'll often go off-trail and sit on a driftwood beach for long periods of time. This is a great thing to do in the warmer months because Lake Marion always seems to push a nice breeze shoreward. That will keep you cool and keep the mosquitoes away too.
Mountain biking is more popular than hiking on this trail, but I like to hike it (slowly) because there is a good concentration of whitetail deer in the area, and I have seen them on every visit.
