Nice views on this hike. Unfortunately, the trail has not been kept up well, so keeping on the trail got more and more difficult the further out we got. We made it to sign post 33 and decided to turn around. We were probably only a few tenths of a mile from the end, but the trail became hard to find. We followed the advice in a prior review and found the trail head across from campsite 4 in loop A. Nice spot, just needs TLC.

The trailhead is in fact there but other internet directions were incorrect. The trailhead is in the campground at Sinclair Lake Recreation area. It is on loop A directly across from site #4 (site numbers are on the picnic tables) where there is a post labeled “trail”. The trail was a pleasant romp through the woods -1.8 miles one way according to other posted signs. It has clearly not been super well maintained lately but you could reasonably find the way using a combination of the faded white paint marks on the trees, the numbered posts that once marked a self led tour of sorts, and the footpath that was once well trodden. I read that there are nine bridges on this trail but we only made it over six of them and just past the 31 post, maybe 1.3 miles down tops, before giving up on the trail which was becoming increasingly overgrown and difficult to follow. Trees were downed across it a number of times. I would certainly still recommend it. The lake is visible on your left the majority of the time and it was quiet and filled with songbirds. Plus it seems to be the only trail within the recreation area! Smelled wonderful and fairly flat. Having the lake as a reference had me less concerned about losing the trail also. Saw beautiful blue herons. Enjoy!

We never found a trail head and had lots of problems with the GPS getting there. I'm so surprised there aren't more trials in this area. What a missed opportunity.

Trail? What trail? Completely unmanaged. GPS showed we were where the trail used to be but...no longer. Sadly, this had so much promise but, do not waste your time on this one.
