Scenic and popular Lake Moultrie Passage rings the eastern and northern shores of a 60,000-acre lake, and panoramic views are spectacular. Much of the passage shares Santee-Cooper’s service roads on the lake’s earthen levees, which makes the trail a favorite with mountain bikers. From the Hwy 52 trailhead, a short hike through pine forest opens to the Pinopolis East Dike, a perfect place for admiring sunsets. After a walk through Bonneau Beach, the trail continues along the north-shore dike system until it crosses historic Santee Canal. The last few miles pass through a mature hardwood and pine forest that includes fascinating swamp terrain around Bulltown Bay. NOTICE: The two hand pump wells at the primitive campsites inside the East and North Dikes of Lake Moultrie have been removed, as well as, at the Sandy Beach campsite on the spur trail inside North Dike. There are currently no wells located at the primitive campsites. Please be sure to pack in enough water if you plan to camp.
