trail 01Weather here has improved considerably. So off this morning to hike Cheraw State Park’s Turkey Oak Trail. Well … more of a walk than a hike, really …..

Turkey Oak Trail really is two trails. Intersecting loops, really. I only went a half-mile into one loop. But it was a great experience. Here’s some video of the hike – ‘er, walk:

By then it was time for lunch. Well past time for lunch, in fact. So off I drove to the nearby town of Cheraw to find a restaurant, and to look around.

dizzyCheraw is one of the most interesting towns in South Carolina. Have a look at their town website here. Lots to see and do. One of those places that has succeeded in making its history work for it today. Really a special place. I’ll certainly return to spend more time. Which will provide yet another excuse to camp at Cheraw State Park!

Here’s a short video of my visit to Cheraw:

That’s all for this visit. Next up is Lake Wateree State Park. Another gem in South Carolina’s state park system.
