First Day Hike - Desportes Island Nature Trail

At Lake Wateree State Park

Start the New Year off on the right foot at a state park trail! Join a ranger at Lake Wateree SP as we take an easy hike along the Desportes Island Nature Trail, learning about a life as a ranger and the wildlife here at the park. The trail is approximately 2.3 miles long but the trail is rated as easy. Please arrive 15 minutes early at the Tackle Shop and have fun on New Year's with the Lake Wateree Rangers!
