About the Santee Passage







Due to construction for I95 and logging of one of the offroad sections from mile marker 7.5 to 11 on the map please follow this route going from mile marker 7 on Hwy 210 to Mile marker 11 on Intracoastal Lane:

Go right on Macon Rd.

Take a left on Westberry Rd and follow it around, over the train track and out to Hwy 6 and go left.

Take a left on Intracoastal Lane and follow it around where you will pick back up on the map.


Lots of dirt roads and time on rural highways make Santee Passage a pleasant trip for mountain bikers. The passage winds through farmlands in eastern Orangeburg County, and the view is a tapestry of color and texture from cotton, wheat, soybeans, and canola. Produce stands offer seasonal delights, including fresh-picked strawberries, blueberries, and peaches. The pot of gold on this passage is a shady portion across land owned by farmers Ira and Mona Avinger. Take time to enjoy the pinewoods and whopping oak trees. The passage travels under Interstate 95 on a dirt road into the tourist town of Santee.
