Trails

The diverse habitats of Lake Waccamaw—both on land and along the shoreline—are presented by a trail network that includes access to boardwalks, sun shelters and piers along with great fishing spots. 

 


Pine Woods Trail
Location: Winds through the park from the picnic area to the visitor's center

Description:

The trail allows hikers to view the diverse plant life found at Lake Waccamaw State Park. Common plants along this trail include longleaf pines, bay trees and turkey oaks. With a careful eye, hikers can even spot Venus flytraps. Because the flytraps are a rare species, they should not be disturbed.
