Walker Preserve Trail:
Approximately 1 mile long
As you leave the baseball park, you enter the City of Santee and the newly developed trail at Walker Preserve. This former sand mining site has undergone significant restoration. The trail is wide here, and is popular with dog walkers, equestrians, hikers, runners and bicyclists. It is also a favorite place for our youngest bike riders to practice their new skills. Look For: Areas where you can easily access the water and a variety of interpretive signs that speak to the history of mining and the Walker Family who farmed this land from the early 1900's.
