Trail Description
About this trail
Great little trail loop near I-95. Not much else around the area for mountain bikers but this trails makes the best out of the flat terrain. About 2 miles of the loop is on wide singletrack, the rest is on twisty and at times tight singletrack in the dense pine forest. Be sure to wear your helmet, not because you might fall but because there are tons of low branches on this infrequently maintained trail. At times the trail is hard to follow and you'll find several unexpected twists and turns as you build up speed. Overall a nice place to ride, perfect for those new to the sport.

Review: Santee State Park is a great place to ride. It has some obstacles but is a great place for a great work out. The staff is getting more involved on the up keep of the trails. This fall they are going to hopefully add to some more of the trails. The Lime Stone and Sink Hole trails are ok but are short. Hopefully these trails will be extended in the near future. I understand they are getting guidance from the mountain bike group SORBA who has done a wonderful job at Pointsett State Park. Come and enjoy a nice ride, 8 mile loop. Add the other two trails and you get another 2.5 miles.

Review: The trail is in pretty good shape now. Rode last week and one tree was down. The State Park is suppose to take care of it. Come and enjoy a good 8 mile loop.

Review: Yes it's flat but the trails here are pretty well maintained and there is plenty of wooded singletrack to explore. Great option for the area.

Review: 08/02/2014 Have been riding State Park most of the summer. We have done some work on the trail but it has two big trees down. Have brought it to the Park Rangers attention. Hopefully will be taken care of this week. Nice views of the lake at certain parts of the trail.

Review: Only a small section of tight fast section for some fun, the rest is wide flat and best served as just a relaxing ride(if you can deal with all the roots)

Review: Ditto on all previous posts. It's a 7 mile trail fairly well marked. The visitor's center attendant said the park manager rides the trail every morning, but I think only for the first 4-5 miles because at least the last 2 miles were pretty poorly maintained. I'd still ride it for a break from the road when passing through, since it's so close to I-95.

Review: It's an easy and flat ride. It goes wide for 4 miles and you can feel a nice lake breeze. After that you turn to the foods and it becomes messy. The trail is not maintained and it is not easy to find a path all the time.. It narrows down and becomes a real jungle, watch out for spiders and elks everywhere..one jumped right in front of my bike on the trail. Riding next to the lake was easy and a real pleasure, riding in the jungle wasn't that fun..

Review: Flat and fairly fast just pay attention to the blue blazes and watch out for roots. A lot of them are hidden under the pine needles. There are some good views of Lake Marion but that's about it. Overall not too bad since nothing else is available in the immediate area.

Review: Theres not much to recommend this trail other than there seems to be nothing else in the immediate area. Very flat, half doubletrack, and not very long. No scenery to speak of. It did beat spending the evening sitting in the hotel room in town.

Review: Very flat. No hills. Lots of pine straw and leaves. Some great views of the lake. Cool little beach area. About 7 miles. Manchester for fun!
