“The Lake Haigler Loop features some of the Greenway's best scenery and is an easy trail.”
— Kristen Arendt
The Lake Haigler Loop is a pedestrian-only loop which wraps around the 28-acre Lake Haigler. It is characterized by hardwoods and towering pines. It is an easy trail, but if you want more mileage or distance, it also connects to a number of other trails. If you are interested in camping, primitive campsites are located in between the lake and the Rush Pavilion.
Features: Lake — Views — Waterfall — Wildlife
The trail is relatively easy, though there are some stairs, a brief incline, decline, and a series of boardwalks. The trail also offers a great view all around the beautiful lake, and there is a variety of wildlife to be seen along the shores. When the water levels are high enough, there is a pretty little waterfall on the spillway, which makes for a scenic destination. Fishing is popular here, but you must be a member of the Greenway and have a South Carolina fishing license.
