Easy to moderate run depending on how much you challenge yourself with detours. Nice treat with a lake side view followed with a train track ending. Expect to see fox and deer along the route.

WARNING Dont bother checking this place out the water is beautiful but youll get ticketed for swimming in it and the winslow police will come out of nowhere. its beautiful. but not worth the hassle . and definitely NOT a hiking trail! You basically need a monster truck to even get back there its all sand holes

If this was an off roading or ATV trail I would give it five stars. Not much of a hiking trail it mostly consisted of sand and mud holes. Also, the directions bring you to a random residential dead end road which is not how you get to the trail. The actual trail is off of cains mill road (right behind a golf course) that says no outlet but if you keep driving you will get to the sand/mud trail. It seemed there were other entrances but not sure how to get to them. The lake itself is beautiful and just as blue as the pictures!

Okay so the trail doesn't start where it says it does. The trail actually starts right on Cains Mill Road and it is not really a trail at all, more of an ATV track around the Blue Hole. The remnants of kids parties line the shore. There is what appeared to be an abandoned set of railroad tracks on the trail opposite Cains Mill Road. The water is a gorgeous turquoise though and I was able to get some good photos which I uploaded.

Couldn't find the trail. Unless it started by some houses down a long sandy trail...reminded me of something out of a Rob Zombie movie

Garbage everywhere. Basically walking down a road next to a golf course, rock quarry, and gun club.

Long winding trails with lots of cool hand made bird houses. Sand trails that seem to just keep going and going. Not much cover so wear sun screen. Didn't really see any wildlife either.

the train track aspect of the trail was pretty nice. But after that it was nothing but sand for 3 miles.

This was an awful experience for my wife and I. I guess you could say the same for my dog. This trail backs up to a pretty big gun store and firing range. We had no idea. My dog is terrified of gun shots, as are a lot of dogs. Please learn from our mistakes and do not take a dog that is afraid of fireworks or gun shots. We ended up trying to find my poor dog that escaped his leash for 40 minutes of so as he bolted across the golf course that is adjacent to the trail... I felt awful. I interrupted at least 8 peoples golf game! Now we are home, filthy dirty, dehydrated and frustrated beyond belief, but happy to have our dog alive. Happy New Year !!
