Sandy Lake Park is located in Bedford, near Halifax, Nova Scotia. The park consists of nature trails, an off leash dog trail, and a beach/picnic area. The loop trail takes visitors through the woods to an abandoned cabin through rocky trails, to the beach, and back to the parking area over a gravel path. A short, 500m, off-leash dog trail is located at the entrance of the main beach parking lot, allowing visitors to walk during the on-season, from July-October, when dogs are required to be on leash and not-permitted in the beach area. Parking Information: Parking is available at the trailhead at the end of Smiths Road, off of the Hammonds Plains Road. Continuing straight off of Smiths Road, through the main entrance and onto the gravel path, also leads to the main parking area for the beach.

Nice trails but I'm not sure I was in the correct spot as I couldn't find trail markings. It looks like there's a lot of little trails throughout and there's and off leash dog section too. Definitely going back to explore more!
