About the Trail
This paddle trail is entirely within the boundary of the Old Santee Canal Park and consists of a three mile loop on Biggin Creek, including a portion of the original Santee Canal. While the paddle trail is well suited for paddles of all experience, the trail presents an excellent opportunity for beginning paddlers to enjoy a pleasant afternoon of paddling. Rental canoes may be used for a modest fee at the park. The area is primarily forested with cypress trees, has several species of flowering water plants and provides a home for many wading birds. It is recommended that paddlers bring and utilize sunscreen and drinking water. Current pricing and additional information about the park can be found at www.oldsanteecanalpark.org.
