Sam Dale Lake Conservation Area has 3 trails, an 8.5 mile equestrian trail around the area, a 3 mile loop trail, and a 2 mile out and back trail. All trails are easy to follow and well mapped. Loop and out and back trails are very easy to follow taking you through the park along the lake. Nice area with well maintained trails and campground.

Okay trail if you're already close by, but don't go out of your way to get here.

Nice wide trails. Pine one is more scenic than Fox Run. But Fox run is more challenging.
