The trail highlights the Battery Warren, a Civil War earthen fort meant to blockade Union forces from moving up the Santee River. The site is eligible for the National Register of Historic Landmarks. Its name comes from Colonel Samuel Warren, who was a local revolutionary war hero and previous owner of the land where the battery is built. The embankments of the old fort are still visible today.
